Before you call the plumber, you should have a type of piping in mind. There are so many options for plumbing nowadays. It used to be simple when copper dominated the market.
However, this is no longer the case. This is a variety of options now. How do you know which one is right for you? Further, how do you avoid the wrong type of piping that could cost you down the road? In this video, you will learn how to choose the right piping for you.
CPVC piping is a cost-efficient type of piping that is used in many homes. It is easy to cut and malleable. It is also great for well water because it is resistant to certain minerals that are often found in well water. If you have well water, this is a great option for you. The only downsides is that they do not last as long as the other options. They also require using solvent and primer for the fittings which makes installation slightly more difficult.
Instead of CPVC, you may decide to go with copper piping. Though it does not install as easy as CPVC, it provides a long-lasting durability that results in peace of mind. This is why it used to be the standard and also why you can still find it in many homes.
