Don't want to hijack Pauline thread so I'm starting this one. Why the negative thoughts on pex? It seems after the PB fiasco, the plumbing companies were leery to introduce a new product to the US markets but it's been in service for over 30 years in Europe. I know in the life span of a well designed/installed plumbing system, 30 years is short but 30 years and still going? This sounds like the future material. Is it because the overall cost is cheaper? Or the less skill required to install pex? I already know about the lawsuits but those sound like isolated incidents. What are your thoughts?
No announcement yet.
Why is pex bad?
