Copper pipes have been around a long time and still prove to be one of the best alternatives for plumbing your domestic water supply lines. They have excellent durability, aren’t prone to leaking, don’t impart pollutants to your drinking water, can tolerate temperature fluctuations well and can be recycled when they are replaced. The downside is that copper can be expensive and in older installations, may have been installed with lead-based solder. As water pipe goes – copper is still one of the most versatile.
PVC pipes (white plastic pipes) are perfect for vent pipes or pipes that won’t carry hot supply water – like drain lines. They are generally easy to work with, withstand pressure, and won’t rust or corrode over time.
ABS pipes (black plastic pipes) are tough, rigid and generally have a low cost. ABS pipes can be used for drain, waste and vent systems. Keep in mind though that ABS piping is subject to being deformed by strong sunlight (which we have a lot of in Denver!).
PEX pipes are made of Polyethylene that is cross-linked to make it stronger. This cross-linked Polyethylene is then extruded into tubes that can be used in building services pipework systems, hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems, and domestic water piping. PEX pipes are flexible (good for retrofits) and can be used for hot or cold water supply
