San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2018 -- Core Plumbing has indicated that plastic plumbing pipes are better than metallic pipes. In a blog post published on its website, the company has highlighted the many advantages of installing plastic plumbing pipes including durability, flexibility, affordability, and the fact that plastic does not corrode.

Core Plumbing has advised all its residential and commercial plumbing clients in San Diego, CA, to install plastic plumbing pipes. The company has posted a blog on its website discussing the many advantages that plastic plumbing pipes have over metallic ones. The article starts by noting the soaring popularity of plastic pipes in the plumbing industry. Core Plumbing compares the various metals that are used in the manufacture of plumbing pipes with plastic. The company warns its clients against installing or even having old lead plumbing pipes in their homes because they pose the risk of lead poisoning. The company goes on to state that plastic is far much better than steel because it doesn't corrode. And regarding copper, the best metallic material for manufacturing plumbing pipes, Core Plumbing notes that it's more expensive than plastic.

Although the company advocates the use of plastic pipes in the plumbing system, Core Plumbing does not recommend all types of plastic. The company acknowledges the limitations of various types of plastic in the blog post. For instance, PVC cannot carry hot water, and while CPVC can, it has durability issues. Core Plumbing recommends cross-linked polyethylene or PEX for all plumbing pipes. The company offers four advantages of installing PEX pipes in the plumbing system. Firstly, PEX plumbing pipes are cheaper than all metallic pipes. In fact PEX costs up to 30% than copper. Secondly, PEX does not corrode like steel. Thirdly, PEX tubing is very flexible and it's hence easier to install. And last but not least, PEX plumbing pipes are very durable.
