In response to Re: CPVC v. PEX New Residential Construction

: We're negotiating a new home construction contract. Our builder intends to use PEX for hot and cold water lines (and PVC for all drains). Most of the people we've talked to would recommend CPVC over PEX for various reasons, including future repair costs, etc.. We're in the western part of Virginia so temperatures are moderate. Any thoughts on using CPVC v. PEX?

I think PEX is a better product than CPVC.
It does take special tools, but then how often does a homeowner ever change their plumbing?
When they do, they usually get a plumber.
