These days, homeowners have increasingly been opting for plastic pipes, since these alleviate some of the issues of metal pipes, such as corrosion. Trying to determine which of the two most popular materials is best can be a major challenge.
On the one hand, PEX (known as cross-linked polyethylene) pipes have several advantages. Their flexibility makes them easy to install around tight corners and angles. They are generally less expensive than copper or PVC pipes and can be installed quickly, reducing labor costs.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes can also be a good choice since they are rigid, making them less prone to bending and cracking. These pipes are also convenient since they have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance. Similar to PEX, they are resistant to many chemicals and can be used in a variety of applications. When it becomes difficult to select which one works best, reach out to us for more information.
Metal pipes have been used in plumbing systems for many years due to their strength, durability, and resistance to heat and pressure. However, over time, even metal can deteriorate and become susceptible to leaks and other problems. Homeowners should never delay on repiping their metal pipes.
Some common types of metal pipes and their expected lifespans include:
- Copper pipes: These tough pipes are commonly used in plumbing systems and can last for up to 50 years or more with proper maintenance.
- Galvanized steel pipes: Pipes made from galvanized steel were typically used in older homes but have been largely replaced due to their tendency to rust and corrode. Their expected lifespan is around 20 to 50 years.
- Cast iron pipes: Commonly used for sewer lines, cast iron pipes can last for up to 100 years with proper maintenance.
- Lead pipes: Lead is no longer used due to its toxicity but may still be present in older homes. A lead pipe’s expected lifespan is around 100 years. Even if lead pipes are technically still useable, they should be replaced to avoid long-term health defects.
If homeowners do not know the age or state of their pipelines, it is best to schedule an inspection from Fast Layne Plumbing.
