Copper, PVC, and PEX are all types of pipes that can be used in a home plumbing system.
Copper pipes are durable and have been used in plumbing for many years. They are resistant to corrosion and are able to withstand high temperatures and pressures. However, copper pipes can be expensive and difficult to work with.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes are also widely used in plumbing. They are lightweight, easy to work with, and inexpensive. PVC pipes are resistant to corrosion and are suitable for both hot and cold water systems. However, PVC pipes can become brittle over time and may not be suitable for high-temperature applications.
PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) pipes are a newer type of plumbing pipe. They are flexible, easy to work with and are resistant to freezing and bursting. PEX pipes are also resistant to corrosion and are suitable for both hot and cold water systems. They are also relatively inexpensive.
In summary, copper pipes are durable and long-lasting but can be expensive, PVC pipes are inexpensive and easy to work with but may not be suitable for high-temperature applications and PEX pipes are flexible, easy to work with, and resistant to freezing and bursting but have a shorter lifespan than copper and PVC.
