    Default PEX-PIPE For pipe replacement in condo building?

    I am on the homeowners board for a condo association in Southern Calif. and we are looking at replacing 35 year old steel plumbing. we have 2 main towers, 3 stories tall with 40 units in each.
    The question is, would PEX-PIPE be a good solution to re-piping these buildings? Does CA. plumbing code allow for this type of installation?

    Obviously, going with copper will cost a bundle and we are looking for alternatives?

    Any help or light someone can shed on this will be greatly appreciated!

    The 2007 California Plumbing code allows PEX, but a lot of cities DO NOT adopt that particular provision. You would have to check locally. Any plumber in your area would know. I assume anyone you looked to for a bid could quote you for any material which is allowed.

    Default Pex

    You will have a permit and inspections so all you have to do is ask at the building department if PEX is permitted.
