We gladly use our impressive expertise and diverse industry insight to provide honest answers and help households select the services their systems need. Below, we’ve answered some questions that customers ask us frequently. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for answers to other questions or further information about the ones below.

What Types of Water Pipes Are There?

Water line replacements and installations can’t commence without choosing the right type of pipe to place in the ground and supply your home with clean, safe water. Typically, water lines come in three general material choices, and Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Kelowna will gladly explain the pros and cons of each and advise you on which type fits your needs best. You can also turn to us for answers and solutions to problems like leaking pipes and plumbing repairs. We’ve described the three basic options below for your benefit:


Service professionals recognize copper piping as the gold standard for water lines. This option stands up against leaks, has a long lifespan, and doesn’t pollute the water running through it, making copper a reliable choice outside galvanized and plastic pipes.


As a superior choice to average plastic piping, manufacturers produce PEX from crosslinked polyethylene to make this pipe stronger and more flexible. PEX differs from copper pipes and their soldering method because plumbing specialists connect it using compression fittings and a clamping machine to adhere them.


Some households use CPVC piping for their water lines because of their lower cost. This rigid plastic pipe is connected using fittings that a professional will adhere together with glue.

Can I Buy My Own Copper Pipes?

Hardware stores tend to carry copper pipes for homeowners, but Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Kelowna advises against purchasing your own pipes from them for a water line replacement or installation. Instead, buy your copper pipes from a plumbing supplier. A hardware store’s products may technically be the same grade, but their quality won’t be as good as what you will get from a plumbing supplier.

What Are Plastic Water Pipes’ Disadvantages?

Compared to copper pipes, plastic plumbing products fall short because of many disadvantages. For instance, you’ll need to keep rats away from your home because they love to chew on plastic. This issue makes plastic pipes a poor choice in rural areas. Sizing issues are another concern with PEX and CPVC water pipes due to their smaller inner diameter. A five-eighths or three-quarter-inch PEX pipe may be necessary for a line requiring a half-inch copper pipe to ensure your home has the same water flow amount. Finally, even with PEX pipes being a stronger plastic choice, it’s still not nearly as damage-resistant as copper piping. In cases when a copper pipe simply bends, plastic pipes will probably break.
