Carl, PEX vs. CPVC Which would you use? Mike

Hi Mike, Let me give some info to my readers on both PEX and CPVC. PEX Tubing and CPVC water pipe are generally cheaper than copper piping.

PEX is a water supply piping system that doesn’t corrode or develop pinhole leaks, is chlorine-resistant, scale-resistant, and has fewer fittings, connections, and elbows than rigid plastic and metallic pipe.

PEX is excellent for radiant heating...continued
