If you are doing your own plumbing repair, you may be wondering what type of piping is easiest to install. Choosing the wrong piping can cost time and money if mistakes are made during the installation process. This is why it is important to find the right plumbing.
In this video, you will learn about the easiest to install piping.
Currently, there are three main options of piping on the market. There is copper, CPVC, and PEX. Copper tends to be the most difficult to work with thanks to inflexibility and complicated fittings. Similarly, CPVC requires using primers and solvents for fittings. Though, it is much more bendable. The winner by far as far as installation goes is PEX piping.
The reason that PEX is so easy to install is due to its flexibility. The piping can literally be bent slightly to turn corners. However, there are still fittings to facilitate this process and connect pipes. However, even the fittings can be easier to use. Some of the fittings simply snap together. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Talk to your local plumber about PEX piping today if you have questions.
