PEX Plumbing Pipes vs. Copper Plumbing Pipes
Many of our Show Low, Pinetop, Heber, and Lakeside customers often ask about the various types of plumbing pipes that are available to them when the need to repipe becomes necessary, here are the main differences between the two main options and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Almost all new plumbing pipes used today to replace old, rusty, and galvanized pipes are either Copper pipes or PEX pipes. Many homeowners do not know what Copper or PEX piping consists of, what each looks like, the cost of each, the benefits of each, and the drawbacks of each, until they are faced with the need to repipe a bathroom or often the whole plumbing system in their house.

Two reasons why Plumbing with PEX is less expensive than plumbing with copper is that the material costs less and it requires a lot less effort from Plumbers to install a new plumbing system using PEX pipes. It also won’t be dug up by thieves as does copper.

Copper Plumbing Pipes
As far as copper piping being recyclable, it is really not an advantage for two main reasons; because once installed, you will not need to replace them for decades, possibly centuries and two, we’ve had various people contact us for a New PEX Plumbing System because their copper pipes were stolen and they did not want that to happen again. Thieves merely cut the copper pipes and recycle them for money. Plumbing with Copper Pipes is just more expensive.
