When it comes to the plumbing pipes used in
residential homes, there is a wide array of
different options to choose from, each with their
own benefits and disadvantages.

It is important to understand these differences
when you are re-plumbing different areas of your
home to ensure the best results.

Types of Plastic Plumbing PipesPlastic pipes
have become more standard in modern homes over
using metal pipes. There are several different
types of plastics available as follows

5
1. PVC Pipes This is a basic plastic pipe and
is easy to work with and inexpensive. It works
well with cold water, but not hot water.

6
Hot water can cause the pipe to warp, which leads
to leaks, cracks, and breaks. They are also
resistant to freezing so can be used as the main
water line coming into the home, as well as drain
pipes for toilets, sinks, bathtubs, and showers.

2. PEX Pipes PEX pipes are a sturdier form of
plastic pipe that works with both hot and cold
water. They work great with retrofits and do
offer some resistance to freezing.

8
However, the materials used in PEX pipes can
attract rodents that will chew on the pipes and
lead to broken water lines, so they are not well
suited for areas where rodents can be a problem.

3. CPVC Pipes Another type of plastic pipe
that contains chlorine and chlorinates the water
to remove bacteria.
  • www.mypreciseplumbing.com

    647-878-9293

10
CPVC pipes are stronger than PVC and can be used
for both hot and cold water lines inside the
home, but are not freeze resistant.

11
Types of Metal Pluming PipesDepending on the
age of your home, you could also have various
metal pluming pipes.
  • www.mypreciseplumbing.com

    647-878-9293

12
The most common type of metal used is copper.
Copper is great choice because it will not rust,
has a long lifespan, and fittings often remain
secure, resulting in fewer leaks.
  • www.mypreciseplumbing.com

    647-878-9293

13
However, copper is not suited for areas where
freezing is a concern because the metal offers no
protection.

    647-878-9293

14
Some modern homes will have stainless steel pipes
in place of copper. Just like copper it is well
suited for indoor applications and lasts a long
time.
  • www.mypreciseplumbing.com

    647-878-9293

15
However, the costs for stainless steel pipes is
significantly more than copper.

16
Another type of metal pipe that isoften found in
older homes built in the 1980s and earlier, but
no longer used is galvanized steel.
  • www.mypreciseplumbing.com

    647-878-9293

17
If you still have galvanized pipes in your home
it is highly recommended to have them re-plumbed
due to the concerns about lead being released
into the water from corroded pipes.

18
You will also find cast iron pipes in older
homes. Cast iron is very durable and has a long
lifespan, but when it is time to replace it, it
is recommended to use a different type of modern
piping.

19
The last type of metal pipe could have in your
home if you use natural gas are black iron pipes.
These pipes are used specifically for natural gas
lines and never used for water lines.
