I was surprised to learn lately that PEX pipe has been used in Europe for
indoor plumbing since the late 1970s. And it's my understanding that
Europeans never made the costly mistake of taking the PB route and went
straight to PEX during the 1980s. Did Europeans know something that we
didn't? Why did we Americans have to learn the hard way?
Seems to me the copper industry has been fighting the pex changer forever...
I know here in Nevada we deal with so many older homes with combinations of
galvy and copper, and mobiles with plastic, that transition fittings to pex
is a HUGE time saver. Our techs were initially hesitant to change, but now
love to work with the stuff...
