Answer: 
Hi Jake,
Yes, you can spray paint PEX. However, if there are any fittings SharkBite fittings exposed, cover them to prevent the release collar from becoming unusable due to paint "gluing" the collar in place.
Thanks,

Answer: 
Hi Wayne,
PEX pipe should not be exposed to UV rays. If using PEX outside or anywhere exposed to UV rays, protect the pipe by insulating it with foam pipe insulation.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Same as others Like others said it keeps wanting to roll back up anyway I also wanted pipe insulation on it. Took some work but once I got insulation sled on no trouble sliding on down the pex. Then did it again to but insulation on it took 17. I duct taped the insulation joints together so no pex would show. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A+ Product for Easy DIY Installation Don't doubt yourself if you are thinking about a plumbing job with PEX. It's super easy. This product is way cheaper than copper and fittings are easy to complete. I am a financial advisor with no plumbing experience and I refit my whole house in a day. Two points to pay attention to: First, if you use copper rings, get the tool for the job, don't try and use the cheap crimper that uses vice grips close (and remember that it's hard to crimp in certain angles). Also, when you fit the PEX to your hot water supply, make sure that you don't have to keep some copper touching the unit, per your building codes. Other than that, super easy!!! February 24, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by very difficult to get straightened This is a great product but if you need more than the 10 foot lengths like I did, you have to buy it in a roll. I eventually had to use hand pipe bender mounted in my vise to "reverse" the curve so I could get some straight runs. Even heating it didn't help much. I don't know how else they could package long lengths so just be aware it likes to stay curled up. May 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very ease to install very ease to install much better than copper. buy or rent the good tools July 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than pipe Cuts easily, though you can buy a pex-specific tool for cutting, PVC snips will work well too. A little stiff to lay flat and takes some work to get unwound. November 20, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value and quality It's good for longer runs to avoid additional coupling. The only problem is that the tubing likes to stay coiled up and can be a little difficult to be straighten out. September 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just redid my hot water lines with PEX : ) Just redid my hot water lines with PEX : ) If you have a pipe location that is not in the sun and will not be chewed by rodents I reccomend PEX for the do it yourselfer. We have a relatively small home with 1.25 bathroom. The hot water flow to the shower had been slowing down so it was time to re-pipe. PEX costs a small fraction of the price of copper (45 cents/ft vs. $3/foot) and since it is somewhat flexible it needs fewer elbows and all Sharkbite PEX can withstand 190 degre water at 80psi. I read the istallation guide at the manufacturer's website and read professional plumbers who advised against the o-ring based sharkbite quick connectors (they fear the o-rings will get brittle and fail over time)...I went with the crimp-method of attaching the PEX to the connectors. I emailed Sharkbite as well to ask if there were any prefereed insulation materials and learned that either of the foam insulations sold at HD would be fine. PEX is thicker walled than copper so the main branch was done in 3/4" PEX and the offshoots to low water flow areas (sinks, toilets, and washer were done in 1/2" PEX My home has a tight crawlspace and I just tapped into the galvanized pipes in the wall rather than fret getting pipes into the walls. The installation took me a full day and ~$200 in parts. My wife and daughters are happy with the improved water pressure and I liked using a material that is supposed to last a lifetime and costs a fraction of copper and was relatively easy to install.
