- Cleanliness: Bacteria can grow in other types of plumbing, especially plastic piping designs. Bacteria cannot grow in copper pipes. Also, there is no risk of lead poisoning as lead isn’t used during the manufacturing process of copper pipes.
- Durability: Copper pipes are very durable. Unlike designs that are made of steel, copper pipes will resist corrosion effectively.
