Types of pipes Western Rooter installs
Copper pipe is ideal for ½ inch and 1 inch water supply lines leading from the main water supply pipe to household sinks and toilets. Western Rooter feels that copper is a plumber’s favorite because it does not rust and is very reliable. It also offers trouble free service for decades. Western Rooter usually uses copper pipes for re-piping water supply to all of your plumbing fixtures.
PEX tubing looks something like a garden hose but it’s much stronger and more reliable. Its flexibility and strength make it as reliable as copper but easier for plumbers to work with. We suggest PEX tubing as a low cost alternative to copper piping.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipe is the most common material used today for household drainpipes and vents. It comes in many different sizes and western rooter usually installs this type of piping for vent jobs, sewer and drainage jobs. It is very reasonable and easy to install and use.
Cast Iron pipes are tough and reliable. Today they are more commonly found in commercial and municipal applications than in residential plumbing.
Galvanized steel pipes After years of use, minerals from water react with the galvanizing material to cause scale build up inside the pipe. This will eventually narrow the diameter of the pipe resulting in lower water pressure and reduced volume. Western Rooter uses galvanized steel pipes when it is appropriate.
