I don’t know about you, but I worry about things like my corroded pipes bursting under my house, squirrels getting into my attic, trees falling and crushing my home, etc. So peace of mind is something I strive for and try to buy when I can. Yes, sometimes peace of mind has a price tag on it. I decided to buy a little peace of mind by having my 1960’s corroded water pipes replaced with PEX Tubing (cross-linked polyethylene).
Advantages of PEX Tubing include:
- less expensive than copper pipes
- resistant to scale and chlorine
- doesn’t corrode or develop pinholes
- installation is faster than metal or rigid plastic
- less connections/fittings
I’ll take all of these advantages and be done with worrying about what’s going on under my home!
My dryer vent hose has obviously disconnected since there is lint all over the crawlspace. Nice!
PEX tubing might be something to consider if you own a home with galvanized pipes that are aging. #peaceofmind #worthit
Let’s get back above, instead of below, where things are a little more interesting!
