Copper is comparable when it comes to being highly durable and affordable against other metal piping but not when compared with Corzan pipe and fittings. With extended use, it will break down by corroding or scaling. Corzan pipe and fittings are immune to corrosion – meaning no callbacks due to failures. Corzan also offers a simplified installation, lower bottom-line costs and quiet, efficient operation when compared with copper. A corroding copper plumbing system can be the source of water contamination, while Corzan is the healthy piping system option.

When compared to stainless steel, Corzan outperforms in water quality and cost savings, plus is backed by nearly 60 years of installation history. Plastic piping systems like PEX and PPR do not have the resistance to chlorine degradation that Corzan does.
