4 Different Plumbing Pipes to Consider
Here are our reviews on 4 different kinds of pipes you can potentially use for your kitchen plumbing, as well as the pros and cons to them. Be sure to check out our blog for other great kitchen tips.
1. Copper Pipes
Copper pipes are extremely durable and low maintenance, as they have fantastic corrosion-resistance. Whilst they tend to be quite expensive compared to other fittings, they are great value for money as they have an extremely long lifespan. These pipes very rarely leak and are known to be the safest choice for your family, as the pipes won’t pollute your drinking water. They are aesthetically pleasing, too, and very on-trend at the moment.

2. Stainless Steel Pipes
Stainless steel piping is also an investment; however, they tend to last for over 50 years. They are the ideal option if the area is subject to heat exposure as they are extremely tolerant to heat, as well as being corrosion resistant. These pipes can also be re-used and are recycled – which is something we can always support.
3. PVC Pipes
PVC pipes are a budget-friendly piping option for your home. They are durable and won’t rust or degrade over time, however, they cannot carry high temperatures. These pipes are a great option to carry your home’s main water supply as they can handle high water pressure.
4. CPVC Pipes
These pipes are perfect for the DIY-er who wants to install their piping themselves. CVPC pipes are super flexible and easy to work with, suitable for both hot- and cold-water supply and the smoother inner prevents mineral deposits. These pipes aren’t a great option if you live in a colder area, as they will split if frozen.
