Pipe Installation

For new construction in the Plano Texas area, you should make a careful decision about what type of plumbing material your installation should be based on. We often recommend systems using copper. For over seventy years, copper plumbing has been the gold standard, installed in over eighty percent of today’s homes, and for good reason.  There are a number of reasons for this.

One of the most important considerations is the quality of your drinkable water supply.  Copper is manufactured without lead, so there is no risk of lead poisoning from water that travels through copper piping (as opposed to galvanized piping).  Copper has a biostatic property, meaning it does not enable the growth of bacteria.  It maintains a healthy pH level (perfect for circumstances in which the water supply may be too acid), and is resistant to corrosion and ultraviolet light.

You want your new construction project to last. Copper is a naturally occurring material – not a synthetic material; therefore, it does not break down over time the way synthetics do.  This means that it is not unusual for copper plumbing to actually outlast the building it is installed in.  What’s more is that copper will not begin to sag over time, as alternative plumbing materials do, and copper plumbing joints are tight, resistant to  corrosion, and most likely never to leak water over the lifetime of the plumbing.

Overall project cost is a big factor in new construction projects.  Surprisingly, copper plumbing is competitively priced in comparison with the alternatives.  Additionally, the fact that it is bendable means that there is less cost for connectors, fasteners, and joints. This has the dual advantage of both costing less for the hardware, and also requiring fewer installation hours, which reduces your plumber Plano installation costs, which are high in our Metroplex area.

Copper is naturally a flexible material, which means it can bend, making it easy for installers to fit it into awkwardly shaped areas.  Copper piping is also thin, which means it can handle a lot of water flow even at a relatively narrow size, making it ideal for installation in tight and narrow spaces.
And when it comes to longevity,  Copper is the only plumbing material that generally comes with a fifty year extended warranty from the manufacturer.  That is because copper is so durable, low maintenance, and long lasting.  The manufacturer’s warranty covers any defects in the material, or workmanship issues during the manufacturing process.

Your new installation or construction plumbing is a major investment, and one that you will need to last for many years to come.  Don’t take any chances with faulty materials or plumbing installation.  Put all of your plumbing needs in the hands of the trustworthy professionals at Plano Plumbing Pros.
