We are remodeling our house and installing all new water pipes. Should we use copper pipes or aquapex? We are insisting on copper pipes but the plumber suggests that aquapex is the best.

Copper is natural and has a proven track record of several thousand years.

"Plastic" had numerous failures and if one reads about some of toxicity of "plastic" and cancer causing effects that may leach into the water one has to wonder why anyone would install plastic other then they want to get and get out of a job fast and cheap.

It was not that long ago when the "state of the art" plastic piping failed miserably and the home owners were left holding the bag wondering whom to sue

Here is an article I wrote in 1999 it may help you decide

(BY THE WAY look what Green peace has to say about plastic)

Type in "pex lawsuits" and then you decide who is right

FYI I use plastic on chemical and or acid waste when no other materials are available or water conditions dictate
