Cross Linked Polyethylene (PEX) Pipes

Similar to PVC Pipes, PEX is currently the pipe of choice when plumbing and is widely used because if its durability, affordability and efficiency. These pipes are made from cross-linked polyethylene and are a great alternative to copper because of their resilience in extreme temperatures and ability to withstand chemical corrosion. 

There are three types of PEX pipes depending on the application for the pipe. The three classifications vary by the grade of the material regarding strength and flexibility. They are:

PEX-a - This grade of pipe is designed to withstand high heat and have little or no points of weakness.

PEX-b - This grade of pipe is more vulnerable to chemicals and is not as strong as PEX-a but is stiffer.

PEX-c - These pipes are the weakest of the three grades but are far less expensive and are typically suitable for more domestic uses.
