As a homeowner in the Citrus Heights area, you want to be able to count on a steady supply of clean water with the appropriate water pressure to complete your daily tasks. If you are installing plumbing in a new home build or remodel, or if you need to replace your current plumbing lines, you may want to consider the advantages of using PEX piping for your water lines.
Advantages of PEX Piping
- PEX piping is extremely durable and long-lasting. Before your plumbing lines even make it to your home, they are at risk of damage during shipping or mishaps on the jobsite. Any accidental dents, drops, or mishandling of pipes made from copper or CPVC can result in cracks or other issues that can cause structural failure of your pipes. PEX is flexible enough to keep issues such as these from occurring. PEX pipes are also resistant to corrosion from minerals in the soil or mineral content in the municipal water system.
- PEX piping has fewer joints. Since PEX piping is flexible, it doesn’t require as many joints during installation. The fewer joints in your water line, the fewer chances you have of joint failures that can result in leaks and water damage to your property.
- PEX piping will withstand extreme temperatures. PEX is able to withstand extreme heat conditions, and in areas that are subject to below freezing temperatures, PEX pipes allow for expansion to accommodate freezing water. Copper and CPVC pipes will crack or burst if exposed to freezing temperatures.
- PEX piping is much quieter than other types of water lines, such as copper pipes. PEX piping can even insulate the sound of water running through the pipes.
