Uponer PEX Piping

Uponer© PEX Piping in Fort Myers

Outfitting Your Home with Modern Plumbing Materials

Throughout the years, different types of plumbing have improved reliability, longevity, and capability of the plumbing systems in our home. Today, the development and advancements of synthetic materials and plastics has created a number of different high-quality options when it comes to plumbing. However, there may not be one that’s better for your home than PEX piping from Uponer©. First introduced into the market in Europe back in 1975, PEX piping is a specialized type of plastic that comes in three different varieties: PEX-A, PEX-B, and PEX-C. PEX-B is more rigid over longer distances while PEX-A is generally more flexible and malleable.

Why Choose PEX Plumbing for Your Home?

Tired of galvanized steel causing leaks? Do you have a problematic copper system with issues like leaks, corrosion, and rust? PEX plumbing from Uponer© may be the perfect choice for your home. PEX plumbing is extremely durable, fairly inexpensive, and largely easy to install. Because these pipes can be quickly cut to size and fittings are generally easy to install, PEX can save you a lot of time on your repipe project. For this reason, it’s quickly becoming the most popular choice for plumbing all cross the country.

Some benefits of PEX plumbing include:

  • Longevity: PEX plumbing systems can easily last anywhere from 75 to 100 years.
  • Low cost: PEX is significantly cheaper to purchase, install, maintain, and repair than other materials like copper
  • Quiet: PEX piping is largely resistant to issues like water hammer, making it a great choice for those who want to reduce the noise water can make running through pipes.
  • Ease of repair: Because most fittings are either press-fit or easily crimped together, PEX piping repairs are generally simple and require almost no disruption to your home.

PEX plumbing is also vastly superior to many other materials in that it’s highly-resistant to chemistry issues in water. If you draw from well water with unbalanced chemistry, if you have problems with corrosion in your water heater, or you have some other issue that may cause water that’s too acidic or too alkaline, metallic pipes like copper could corrode, and that could shorten their lifespan. With PEX plumbing, the specifically engineered plastic material is designed to me extremely resistant to water chemistry problems, making it safe to use in nearly any situation. With different varieties, sizes, and thicknesses, it’s also a great choice for running underground, either through a basement space or down into your foundation.
