Answer: 
Yes, however many (most?) codes require the PEX be 18 inches or more away from the water heater which would thus require you to start out with metal and then transition to the PEX once you're achieved the 18" separation.

Answer: 
Yes. I used the shark bite braided water lines from the water tank and then connected the pex water line to the rest of the plumbing. It makes installation very easy.

Answer: 
Yes it can! SharkBite PEX Pipe is rated to 200 deg. We offer PEX in Red, White and Blue for Potable Water Applications. The Red and Blue will help you differentiate between hot and cold lines, I'd also recommend using SharkBite Water Heater Connectors, simply thread the FIP end onto the MIP connection on the Water Heater and push the other end onto your 3/4" PEX Pipe.

Answer: 
All the colors are suitable with the exception of orange - which is intended for non-potable water (think in-floor hydronic heating). The colors are only there for the end user to differentiate between their hot and cold lines. Personally I just use white for everything.

Answer: 
Blue for cold and red for hot. It makes identifying the water lines easier. The pex water tubing is all the same no matter what color it is.

Answer: 
The red, white, and blue SharkBite PEX is what you would want to use on your potable water system. Any of those colors will work, we do recommend red for hot, and blue for cold.

Answer: 
PEX is more freeze resistant than other pipe materials; however, you must still insulate the PEX. Yes, you can attached a heat wrap to the PEX. PEX is certified for temperatures up to 93 degrees C.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 75 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does the plastic taste ever go away? It's been well over a year! Very easy to work with and install (cut, bend as needed and join together using sharkbite fittings). I bought everything at Home Depot in Tacoma, WA and installed in March 2015. Fortunately I only did one bathroom which was being remodeled and planned to do the rest of the house later. From the gitgo there has been a plastic taste when the faucets aren't used for a couple of hours. I cannot believe this stuff is still being sold. I will have my water tested and will go from there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Peasy Really nice product. My only complaint is that I wish it was a little more flexible for installation. This is very stiff and comes in a roll. It's difficult to get it to straighten for those long runs. Job went well with no leaks and, for a DIY project, is perfect! August 2, 2016
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 Great stuff. Easy to work with and much cheaper than hiring a plumber. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality item Good quality as expected and easy to install without a lot of special tools. January 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value, Easy Install I used SharkBite PEX to replace copper line running to my Water Heater. The red and blue colors make it easy to distinguish Hot and Cold lines after install is complete. Using a SharkBite elbow I easily transitioned from Copper to PEX, the PEX is more flexible than copper and easy to work with, it is also a great value at much lower price point. PEX is easy to cut as well and can be done with a PEX Cutter sold at Home Depot. Great product very easy to work with and use for an average DIYer. May 20, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product, will buy again Was not easy for a novice but all you really need to do with this pipe is stretch it out in the sun and let it heat up. It is so much easier to work with. March 15, 2016
