Re: Is PEX tubing BPA-free?
PEX is no more dangerous than milk jugs, the lining of milk cartons, the thousands of plastic food containers out there... if you're not buying only fresh, organic meat and produce packaged in only natural materials, then PEX is going to be an insignificant factor.
OH... many "organic" meats are fed "organic" feeds that are packaged in various plastics.
And copper pipes produce harmful compounds in the presence of some impurities found in otherwise safe drinking water supplies.
By the way, BPA has only been shown to be problematic when used with HOT food and beverages. It seems to be stable with cold stuff.
PEX does not contain BPA.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
