Freezing Advantages of PEX-a

Freezing Advantages of PEX-a

In cold-weather climates, it is especially important to ensure a residential fire sprinkler system is installed to NFPA 13D guidelines to ensure protection from freeze damage. However, if there is ever a circumstance where the pipe or tubing is exposed to freezing conditions, PEX-a tubing is much more durable and resistant to damage. Because of its flexibility, PEX-a tubing can expand and then contract back down, whereas rigid CPVC pipe will crack and leak.
