Hello, plumber has turned in a bid to me for redoing the rough-in plumbing
on an old commercial building of pier and beam style construction.
His bid calls for the use of "AQUAPEX" fresh water lines to be used. I am
not familiar with this product. Is it of good quality? Will it last?
I like it. I don't care for the other styles as much with the crimp ring.
I have warmed up to them a little more now that they use copper
rings instead of steel (which rot) . If you can do it have separate runs
to each room so there are 0 fittings buried in walls ( no tee's).
Make sure he is going to trim out the fixtures properly!!
I see too many jerk-off's pulling crap like running pex all the way
to the toilet stop, never putting rigid pipe in at all It looks like hell
out in the open if not clipped every 2 feet.
I like ky-tek too. I only use it for heat though. I like the way it does
not expand like pex. (only like 1" per 100' per 100 degrees, as opposed to
1' for every 100') I can install aquapex faster because it snakes much
easier. If you kink the pex it can be fixed. aquapex also has a longer
track record. I have seen leaks with both products if you use compression
