In response to Re: Copper vs Wirsbo
: I like the Wirsbo over the copper.
: Most systems are piped with some copper pipe and fittings.
: I like the fact that there are fewer fittings, better insulating of the pipes and it's quieter.

: : We are in the process of building a new house and our plumber has given us the option of copper pie or Wirsbo pex pipe. I know that the Wirsbo is easier to work with but copper has been around for a very long time and has been tried and tested and is the standard type of household piping. Which would you reccomend and why? And also, is there a website that would have this information in greater detail?


I would definetly go with pex piping. Yes copper has been around for a long time tried tested and often fails. Over time (some times depending on your water a very short time) it will get pin holes if it freezes it Will bust. I don't think it will be around in the years to come. To many benefits to pex.
