copper vs PEX

: Dick, I can't answer for Terry but after 37yrs in the business as of today PEX is the way to go! Thats just my opinion.I haven't put in a copper system in 10 years. Except commercial. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP

10 years?? Has PEX been available/legal in the USA that long? I thought it was fairly new in the US? Although it has been used in Europe for quite a while.

The legal situation here gets a little tricky. I am in an unincorporated area but within the extrateratorial juristiction of the city of Houston. That means within 10-15 years this area will be annexed by the city. probably PEX will be in the city code by then but if not, selling the house could be dificult. not impossible, just a little more difficult.

Thanks for you comments.
