I am very concerned about using PEX tubing for the water supply in my home.
I was told that this plastic was BPA-free but when I did some reading I found out that there has been some reports of MTBE's and some VOCs leeching from this plastic. I also read that this product is not being used in California at this time. I am concerned especially for drinking water.I plan on filtering my water but I would rather not use a product with this concern.
I also have heard of issues of contamination and manufacturing defects in copper tubing manufactured in China. Is an alternative to these products? My plumber is pushing the PEX.
