PEX pipes are popular as they are cheaper and easy to install. Unlike copper pipes they do not corrode in acidic water. But PEX pipes can release elements that were used to manufacture it, which can impact its quality, taste and odor. Elements like pesticides, oil, gasoline and benzene can permeate though PEX pipes. Although more concrete proofs about the safety of these pipes are yet to be secured, some states in the US have stipulated regulations about installing and using them.
