Rick can you give us the latest update on PEX plastic pipe?
Sure. We have been watching the PEX plastic, which has been used in California for more than 10 years now.
We know that all of the brands of PEX are introducing different levels of carcinogenic chemicals, although below the legal limit. (Legal limits for contaminants in tap water have NOT been updated in close to 20 years!) And these things are getting into the bath and shower water and the consumption water.
We also know from a price standpoint that PEX piping has nearly doubled from re-piping a home.
This makes addressing your water quality conditions with a whole house filtration and salt free water conditioning system much more affordable. You do not need to re-pipe if you change the water chemistry and remove the chloramines that cause pinhole leaks. And do it before you get pinhole leak damage. Prevent them rather than wait to repair them.
Our systems are a great way to save money and avoid the disruption and other problems that come with re-piping with plastic pipes.
