Pex


Are a lot of you guys using PEX now?

I'm plumbing my addition. I have a bathroom sink, shower, toilet, and two outside faucets. I was planning on running pex for all.

How do you folks feel about pex for rough ins like in a shower, etc?

Pex


We use pex almost exclusively on new construction now.

However, for remodels, we like to keep the piping the same as it is in the house, so that it doesn't look like a copper/pex/cpvc sandwich.

I hear ya. I like pex because it's faster and cheaper. The sunlight/uv exposure worries me a little with basement windows however.

Maybe I'll run the pex for the long feeds and do the rest of the rough in with copper.
