Some of the main options on the market include:
These metal pipes were used mainly during the 50 year period between 1930 and 1980. They are no longer used in homes today due to their proneness to rusting and corrosion in addition to their lead content.
Durable, heat resistant, and long-lasting. Copper has been a reliable option for over 50 years and continues to prove itself over time. It is great for hot and cold water transport. Most importantly, it won’t pollute your water with toxins.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipes are best for carrying high-pressured water and are usually used as the main supply line in homes. These pipes won’t corrode, rust, or break down with time. Because the material is inexpensive and easy to work with, you’ll save time and money!
Chlorinated PVC pipes are the chlorinated version of normal PVC pipes. The chlorine makes this type of piping safe for transporting drinking water and allows the pipe to carry hot water—something normal PVC pipes can’t do. CPVC is even more flexible than normal PVC!
Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX)
One of the newest types of water lines on the current market. These pipes are a durable plastic alternative that are extremely flexible and versatile. Since they are quite resistant to heat, PEX pipes are great for transporting hot water and are even used for radiant floor heating. They’re also a much quieter option than other pipes on the market. Additionally, they’re inexpensive and easy to cut and work with!
