Repipe with pvc or pex ?

golfer1512September 2, 2010

Homes in our area are repiping overhead due to the copper lines leaking in the slab. If we have to repipe other than cost, is one product better than the other, pvc or pex ? Pros or cons of each.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I prefer PEX. You can run one long line with a fitting on each end, rather than using lots of elbows and fittings. Install is quicker and easier with fewer opportunity to create leaks.
