Just because we’ve already graduated doesn’t mean the learning should ever stop. The back-to-school season is upon us, so let’s start this year on the right foot with a lesson on PEX tubing versus copper piping when it comes to residential and commercial installations.


Why is PEX better than copper? Explaining it is easy as ABC.


A is for accelerated

From residential to commercial and from plumbing to radiant, an Uponor PEX can save you a ton of installation time over copper. Watch this side-by-side, time-lapse video below to see an Uponor Logic Plumbing installation take 17 minutes and a copper installation take 80 minutes. It doesn’t take a mathematician to see that’s more than a 75% time savings.

B is for bendability

Uponor PEX is known for its agility and flexibility. It can bend with each change in direction, which means fewer connections and reduced potential leak-point liability. The flexibility of PEX also enables it to expand up to three times the piping’s diameter, making it more freeze-damage resistant. Copper can’t do any of that.


C is for cost

Fewer fittings leads to time savings and time savings leads to cost savings. If you’re a builder, contractor or homeowner, you want to save time and money—and Uponor PEX does just that.

Now it’s time for your first exam (and I promise it’s an easy one). What do you get when you add time savings and flexibility then subtract fewer fittings and cost? The answer is Uponor PEX.
