The product is exactly what I needed. Included [...] was a plastic bag with a draw string. This is very helpful for storing the tubing between projects.
fast shipping . have not used it yet.
I am about to re-pipe my 25-year-old home, which has leaks in the copper piping. The it has been recommended that the copper pipes be replaced with PEX. What are the ups and downs of using PEX? Especially since I intend to resell the house in a few years.”

The main advantages of PEX over copper are flexibility (less elbows and couplings used), much lower price and higher expansion ratio (accommodates temperature & pressure changes in the system). PEX tubing is also much easier and faster to install then copper. As for the disadvantages, PEX has a slightly smaller ID then copper, but this affects the pressure only with really long runs of pipe (~1.5 psi pressure drop for 100ft of 1/2" PEX at 1 GPM flow). Also, unlike copper, PEX tubing cannot be installed outdoors (exposed to sunlight).
