The Piping That You Can Pass Down with Your House
If you are considering a water heater install, why not consider replacing your old piping. There are new options on the market that will last a very long time. In fact, some piping can last upwards of 100 years.
This means that it could last for generations. In this video, you will learn about some of the longest lasting piping on the market.
CPVC piping is used in about half of all homes in the United States. It is a cost efficient option that is resistant to chemistry in your well water. Despite being a popular option, it has one of the shortest lifespans at only 50-75 years.
Instead, you could go with copper piping. Copper piping has been used for many decades. It generally last anywhere from 75-100 years. However, the downside with copper is that it can be fairly expensive and hard to work with. That is why you may want to consider one last option.
PEX piping is still fairly new to the market, however it is expected to list about as long as copper. It may even last longer by some estimates. However, it is much easier to work with compared to copper. This also makes it much cheaper. Therefore, PEX piping gives you the best of both worlds.
