Plumbing is generally not the first place to look for savings. However, you could certainly be saving money on your plumbing. This is especially true if you are installing new piping, because there are new piping options on the market.
In this video, you will learn more about these options and why you could be saving money.
Copper piping is expensive. Sure, it is a reliable option that can last a long time. However, does this really outweigh the costs. In many cases, the answer was yes. However, copper piping no longer has the throne thanks to new entrants.
CPVC is now the most commonly used piping in America. It represents about half of homes. It is cheaper and easier to work with than copper. However, the tradeoff is that it doesn’t last for as long.
This leads us to the final and best piping option to save you money. PEX piping has a cost similar to CPVC piping. Yet, the labor costs are cheaper. This is all thanks to the easy to install nature of PEX. The piping can bend freely and easily connect to other piping and fittings. Install should take hardly any time at all. Plus, it should last around as long as copper piping. Just don’t expose it to sunlight.
