We install, replace, and repair pex piping - a more cost-effective alternative to traditional copper piping applications.
What is PEX pipe?
PEX stands for crosslinked polyethylene. Crosslinked polyethylene is a material that has undergone a change in molecular structure whereby the polymer chains are linked.
PEX piping looks something like a garden hose, except for the fact that it’s much stronger and very reliable when used as piping. Its flexibility and strength make it just as reliable as copper for indoor and outdoor plumbing, only it is easier for plumbers to work with.
Crosslinking of polyethylene into PEX improves properties like temperature and pressure performance, chemical resistance and resistance to slow crack growth. All elements to help your pipes withstand the test of time.
We recommend PEX pipe if...
We recommend using PEX pipe because have found PEX tubing to be a low cost alternative to copper piping. Those with copper and CPVS pipes maybe be curious to know what the difference is between all these piping options. Uponor ProPEX ® is a highly flexible pipe, meaning it can easily bend around tight corners so there are fewer required connections.
The Uponor ProPEX ® connection doesn’t require glues, solvents or soldering. Both the pipe and fittings don’t pit, scale or corrode. Which, in turn, means fewer potential leak points. This flexibility also enables it to expand up to three times the tubing’s diameter, making it more resistant to damage from frozen water in the system. Making it a great fit for your pipes!
