What’s the best type of pipe for plumbing?
The best type of pipe for plumbing depends on your needs and concerns. For example:
- PVC lasts indefinitely and is easy to install.
- PEX is easy to install and isn’t subject to corrosion.
- Copper is durable and slightly more expensive.
Talk to your plumber about all your options, which may include other types of pipes (CPVC, polyethylene, ABS, polybutylene, etc.)
