How do you choose what materials are right for your needs? Start off by looking at the material your pipes will be made of. Keep in mind that you can use a mix of these materials in your custom home or cabin.
The three main plumbing pipe materials are:
● PEX (cross-linked polyethylene)
● PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
Copper is a familiar, popular material for pipes. It’s a reliable and trusted material that has been used for decades in plumbing systems. It’s downsides include cost and the potential for leakage. Having your entire home’s plumbing system made out of copper can be extremely expensive, plus it can develop tiny leaks over time (several decades) and eventually wear out.
Copper is great for certain spots in the plumbing system. It works well for unions in the water entry room, like the connection to a water heater. Other than these spots where piping interacts with machinery, the rest of your plumbing system can be made of PEX.
PEX pipe is the industry standard nowadays. It is cost and labour effective. It’s also safe, strong and flexible, expanding and contracting with temperature changes. This is crucially different from copper pipes, which can burst if the temperature goes below freezing.
Finally, PVC pipe is also a great choice. It’s lightweight, lasts long and resists corrosion. It’s best used for the drain-waste-vent-system (septic system, sewage, etc).
