How does it work

The plumbing experts at Economy Plumbing Services come into the home and assess the current network of pipes. Thankfully, there is a standard way of doing things and this means most plumbing is laid out in a fairly straightforward way. After the assessment, EPS will go through the wall, attic, wherever necessary to run new pipes throughout the home.

Repiping Materials

All piping jobs use two kinds of materials, the traditional Type L commercial grade copper piping and PEX piping. 

Copper is used in exterior piping (like water heaters) wherever you need rigid pipes to be secured.

PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) tubing is the tube of choice when it comes to most building piping work. Specifically we use UPONOR WIRSBO PEX piping with a 25 year manufacturers warranty.

The benefits of PEX are clear:

  • Easy to install
  • Durable
  • Adaptable
  • Cost effective

The Power of PEX

PEX ‘cross-linking’ of the polyethylene makes it stronger, more resistant to abrasion and cracking, as well as being more resistant to heat and various other (rather scientific) benefits. For our purposes the benefits of PEX in plumbing are huge!

PEX pipes have incredible flexibility, able to bend as space permits which necessitates less joints and connections. The fewer joints, splices, and other connections in the pipe means there is less risk of leaks and water pressure stays great throughout the whole flow.

PEX is so much easier to install than copper pipes for a few reasons. That flexibility we talked about? That helps. PEX also doesn’t require torches to solder pipes together, or adhesives for pipe fittings. Generally fewer fittings and connections are needed on a PEX job, simplifying the whole process.

We use a color-coded layout for pex pipes as well, with red tubing being used for hot water and blue for cold, and clear for hard water lines, meaning less chance for errors and mixups. No more turning the cold handle to get the hot water! This colored piping is uv protected vs clear/white piping. It is important to keep PEX pipe covered and not exposed to UV rays. We have all of our pipes stored in a warehouse away from any chance of exterior elements.

Oh, and remember how we said it doesn’t require a torch for soldering? That also brings the risk of a fire down! Installing PEX tubing doesn’t require a flame of any sort. Transitions from copper to PEX requires soldering however the use of open flame is minimal now.

PEX is non-corrodible! Unlike copper pipes, moisture and minerals don’t corrode PEX. Further, the lifespan of PEX piping reaches up to 50 years making it an ideal material to replace thermoplastic and metal pipes throughout a home.

PEX can still burst from freezing temperatures but is very unlikely to do so than PVC or copper piping. With PEX there is the option to add insulation to keep the water temperatures stable and help prevent freezing.

PEX is adaptable. If you don’t want to have your whole home re-piped (though if you do, we here at Economy Plumbing Service can do the whole job in two days!) you can begin with whatever repairs are immediately necessary and go from there. There are a bunch of fittings out there that allow PEX to interact with copper or PVC piping systems. And since the lifespan of PEX is so long, you don’t have to worry about the first sections of PEX going bad before you get to the rest of it.

Life Expectancy 

Whenever a metallic pipe comes into contact with the soil it tries to go back to its natural state – electrolysis takes place. A small current of electricity that you can’t see, feel, or touch but it’s there runs through the pipe. This causes the pipe to decompose. The friction of the water tumbling through the pipe will break down the pipe regardless. 

That’s why we use a lot of PEX piping. It isn’t metallic so it doesn’t break down from the friction of the water. It has a 25 year warranty but it’s been around for 50 years and it lasts.
