    "When a connection to copper or other metal pipes is required, PEX works better than PVC because crosslinked polyethylene won't corrode. - Price. When you compare the material costs of PEX vs PVC, PEX comes out more expensive. (However, balance this factor against the lower labor cost to install PEX.)14"

    "Compare only in price, for example John guest speedfit pipe costs more than floplast, and Hep2o costs more than both, as long as you get inserts & fittings to go with pipe they all work well and offer long guarantees."
