California Bars PEX From Plumbing Code
The ruling bars PEX from being adopted into the 2001 California Plumbing Code.
The Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association - which represents many PEX manufacturers, including Wirsbo, REHAU, Vanguard Industries and Marshall Brass, among others - is calling on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to uphold his campaign promise in 2003 to include PEX pipe in the California Plumbing Code, according to a statement the organization issued.
Supporters of this new decision include the California Pipe Trades Council, Sierra Club and California Professional Firefighters Association.
