That’s an average, and while many homes may exceed that number, others will fall short. Carlsbad is home to over 115,000 people, and over the last fifty years, it’s shown a growth of close to 800%. And why not Carlsbad? It’s about as close to paradise as you're going to get. With all the growth of both old and new homes, the demand for new pipes is exceeding an all-time high.

PEX Used For Many Plumbing Applications, Including Home Repiping
For many homeowners, the only pipes they're familiar with is copper. From the early 60s copper was the go-to pipe for plumbing companies and homeowners. Since the turn of the century, that's slowly changed to Cross-Linked Polyethylene Tubing (PEX). The maker Uponor developed AquaPEX® tubing for many plumbing applications, and that includes home repiping and new construction. PEX life expectancy is 40 to 50 years, which is the same as copper, it costs less and is easier to install. It can even withstand temperatures of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. The most significant benefit is it costs less.
Some Plumbing Companies And Homeowners Still Prefer Copper Piping
Sixty or seventy years ago our homes were fitted with steel galvanized pipes. In the 60s came copper piping, and to this day, copper is still being used. At Big B's Plumbing, we still get requests for copper piping. Some homeowners prefer it over PEX because they like the product better and are willing to pay a little extra. The plumbing industry relied on copper for the last 60 years, and we're still relying on it. At Big B's Plumbing, we have both copper and PEX experts for your home repipe. Additionally, unlike PEX, you can recycle copper. When your pipes are ready to be replaced, call Big B's Plumbing, your premier copper home repiping contractor in Carlsbad CA.
