my plumber inspector said my pex I bought at home depot was only rated to 100 degrees so the hot water tubing needs torn out and replaced. I've read regardless of color used it can be used for hot or cold pipes. Does Home Depot sell pex only rated to 100 degrees?

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best ideal ever When I used plex pipe for the first time and was amazed. For people who are not real handy men or want ease of installation, quick repairs, etc. its perfect. We had a freeze due to the polar vortex and it did not freeze or burst like pvc will. no wait for glue to dry, it's easy to add in additional water faucets, ice makers, etc. You will buy less fitting that with pvc. If you mess up its no problem it will rotate. You don't have to worry if you are hooking it up wet.i its easy to cut. The only downside it the price. it is in some case ten times higher that standard pipe and fittings. You can buy a pvc elbow for 75 cents. Sharkbite will cost almost eight, but you will used less fittings than with pvc. we had a modular home that was equipped with pex and had only one leak in 20 years 1994-2014. March 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product,good price Sharkbite and Home Depot have teamed up to bring an excellent product to the public it was really easy to use.The only parts that leaked,they were minor leaks,were the none Sharkbite parts e.g.the pipe thread faucets and fittings.Sharkbite and Home Depot need to remind folks that when connecting the plastic pipe to Sharkbite fittings you need to chamfer the pipe with the Sharkbite tool or you will cut the o-rings in the fittings.
