Types of Pipework
Our qualified gas professionals can deal with copper, galvanised and several variations of PEX pipes. Here is a breakdown of the most common types of pipework used in the distribution of natural gas to your home.
Copper pipes have always been the default option for gas piping, and for good reason. They’re reliable, strong and an effective distribution system for natural gas. Many homes have copper pipework installed that has lasted over 50 years with no problems. This is because copper pipes are extremely durable and show little signs of ageing. Copper pipework can be expensive to install but you will get the most out of it compared to other pipe materials available. It is also one of the longest lasting pipes to use within your home.
Galvanised pipes were a popular choice for new home installations around 50 years ago. They are not installed today due to their susceptibility to corrosion. They were once considered the most durable before copper piping was introduced. But over time it has been noted that they usually corrode from the inside out. This causes burst or leaking pipework – especially when being used as a water carrier.
Even though they aren’t installed in new homes today, there are still plenty of homes with galvanised pipework. The gas fitting experts from Metropolitan Plumbing can easily provide you with repairs or replacements should you find yourself with a gas leak.
PEX pipes are now increasingly popular with several manufacturers and brands on the market. The highly trained plumbers from Metropolitan Plumbing have the tools and parts to repair, replace or install your PEX pipes. We service brands such as Sharkbite, Auspex, Pro-fit and Rehau. This style of pipe, often referred to as “plastic piping”, has become more popular due to its price and soft, flexible composition.
When PEX pipework is installed it must be done correctly by a trained professional to reduce any risk of the pipes becoming damaged. If you have a leaking or burst PEX pipe or require a new PEX pipework installation, then contact Metropolitan Plumbing. We can provide quality workmanship, with customer satisfaction guaranteed.

All types of gas pipework must be installed by a trained professional to ensure it is done correctly, as it can be both tricky and dangerous. Don’t take the risk. It’s never worth it in the long run.

Interest Free Gas Pipework
A lot of people associate gas plumbing work with large costs. Not to worry though, here at Metropolitan Plumbing we can help you out on the financial front. It’s as simple as asking your plumber on site about our $0 deposit, interest free payment plans** that help spread the payments across weekly or fortnightly instalments, rather than a sum upfront. These payment plans have increased in popularity due to the flexibility they provide. The application process is simple, with most of our customers gaining approval within minutes. As soon as approval is granted, work can begin straight away.
