Why is copper such a good metal for plumbing?

    Copper is good for plumbing because it is malleable, so plumbers can bend it and use fewer connectors and cuts, preventing leaks; it is nontoxic and biostatic, meaning harmful metals and bacteria can’t leech into the water; it resists corrosion and is unaffected by ultraviolet light; it does not release toxic fumes in the event of a fire, like some other piping materials; and because of its ability to prevent these problems, it is a very economic choice.
