A San Diego Plumber Which is Preferred. Copper or Plastic Water Lines For Water Pressurized lines? Which one is preferred and Why?
And if the water is left standing. Just Imagine if the water you drank from was in a steel container. I guess it would be difficult to stomach. Let alone what it could do to your health, would be another factor.
Although nowadays more and more plastic is being used on water supply lines. Cost is the main reason(s), that water lines are being used. With the rising cost of copper piping. Plastic is the obvious inexpensive choice.
But there again I would like to mention that before in the 1980s (Quest Piping). Plastic piping was Installed and it began leaking usually after a few years. And all that piping was replaced. with copper.
I actually Installed some Quest before when I was working for plumbing companies before. Although it was not agreeable to me. To install Quest.
The newer plastic piping PEX water pipe is suppose to be a lot better and is suppose to last like copper piping. But there again only time will tell.
And I would have to say it is based on the owner if they wish to install plastic or copper piping. My preference has always been copper. Because I have seen copper last 50 + years.
Factors that Help Copper piping or contribute to it’s duration. Or for that matter any water pressurized system is to always have a Pressure Regulator in working order. A simple $10 water test gauge can be screwed onto the hose bibb to check for the water pressure This should be done after the pressure regulator if there is already one.
A pressure regulator will help keep the water pressure from being to excessive and keep it at a normal pressure. Around 50–55 lbs this should be adequate and I believe it helps the pressure regulator to last.
I believe it comes preset around 45 lbs. So maybe around 50 lbs is a good range.There again it depends on the pressure that the person likes.
