PEX pipe are, first of all, durable (as opposed to 25-year-old life of the steel pipe, PEX term – 50 years), secondly, relatively stable corrosion. These are two major advantages. The following is to allocate these qualities:
- Such tubes is absolutely no need for repairs, which significantly reduces operating costs;
- The internal passage of PEX pipe is not “overgrow” the different decay products, and, conversely, increases with time, because PEX has the property take up to 30%;
- Do not lend themselves to tears in the case of freezing water;
- PEX pipe absolutely do not emit toxic substances and thanks to a smooth surface, do not lend themselves to different clusters are bacteriologic safe;
- Weight PEX tube 3-4 times less than in other varieties of this product, which, naturally, easier handling and installation works;
- Savings in electricity consumption during welding.
