The PEX pipe is completely differnet then the Polybutelyne pipe that had problems. The molecules in PEX pipe have been cross linked to help avoid problems. Cross linking the molecules help prevent the pipe from breaking down over time. Its a whole different pipe. The pipe has been being used in Europe for a lot longer then we have had it here in USA. the pipe walls are a lot thicker then the polybutelyne
