Moreno Valley Home Repiping - PEX Tubing

PEX (Polyethylene) For Home Repiping And New Construction

For most homeowners, we don’t know anything but copper for repiping our home because we never had to replace our copper pipes. For homeowners that are now experiencing signs that your pipes need replacing, PEX, an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene, is the first choice for most plumbing companies. PEX is used in residential repiping, new construction, fire sprinklers, floor heating, and cooling systems. The fact is PEX is now used more in new construction, and home re-pipes than copper or CPVC(chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) combined. The product is extremely durable and comes with a 25-year limited warranty on AquaPEX® tubing and ProPEX® fittings.
