You didn't fall for the pex meme, right?

We use it a lot here when the piping is embeded inside the concrete slab.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with PEX

PEX plumbing makes you more receptive of the Devil's influence

Around here PEX is only used in ghetto areas because Jamal keeps stealing copper pipe.

Half the catalog is bait threads. No one cares.

because they're retarded cocksucking pedophiles and they don't give a single shit about the quality of this board as long as it remains properly weaponized for spreading long nosed propaganda

Also, pex is great and the only meaningful problem with it is that because its ease of use attracts sloppy installs by extremely low skilled users who wouldn't even have attempted to do the work with copper

There's a PEX meme?

Is it funny??
>>
>>2551319
PEX is considered to be easier to use by homeowners and handymen compared to copper. It gets used a lot to complete sloppy shitjobs because it is seen as accessible by these users.
Then these sloppy installs are pointed to as to why PEX is a shitty sloppy untidy material compared to the neat and tidy look of copper.

Source: get a brain you stupid fuck and get some real world experience and you'll find out. Did you want me to link a peer reviewed study from an ivy league university which covers the prevalence of sloppy PEX jobs being done by homeowners and nogger handymen compared to copper?

Every building and plumbing material/technique has both advantages and drawbacks. Which set of tradeoffs is right for any given application should be considered on a case by case basis. There are a lot of use cases where PEX is a good and reasonable choice.

The mods only give a shit about cultivating their subreddits. They only delete shit here that triggers them, like racism.

Partially correct. Most of your DIY or part time plumbers will use Sharkbites because they are ridiculously easy to put in and you don't need special tools.
Slumlords and house flippers love PEX because it doesn't get stolen by the local diversity. It does install quicker than copper too, provided you buy the correct tools.

hand quarried stone will still contain radioactive isotopes due to nuclear testing. if you don't live near a natural spring and do all your bathing and cooking literally in the spring you're literally poisoning yourself.
