can this tubing be used to supply hot water to the house from a standard gas water heater I see that it is rated at 180 degrees

Asked by: hankster
You must use at least a 6" metal pipe stub from the water heater and then transition to PEX on a gas water heater.

Trying to plan ahead with a failing water line.

My water line from the meter to my house is that brittle blue stuff that is now failing. I had a leak in January right at the water meter and managed to repair it, but given the nature of this pipe, I wonder if it can happen again. The portion that was repaired is under a flower bed; the rest of the pipe runs under a concrete driveway. First question: is the pipe adequately protected by the driveway to not fail again? Second question: In case it might, I want to run a line around the driveway to minimize the amount of concrete that needs to be torn up. My plan is to lay in a course of 1"PEX, capping it off at both ends and refilling the ditch [which has already been dug to requirements thanks to conscripted teenage labor.] This way if the pipe fails again, all that would be necessary would be to uncap the PEX, connect it to the meter and complete the connection to the house. does his make sense? it seems silly to refill the ditch if there's a chance it may need to be re-dug for a future break. Third question: If I do this, how should I cap the ends to prevent dirt from entering the PEX? thanks!
Asked by: daylily12
I know this is a late answer and the OP may have already completed his/her work but for anyone coming behind this thread, please red: THIS version of PEX is not rated for outdoor use, nor is it rated for underground use (direct bury). It can and will become brittle and be crushed by the material above it. There are other versions of PEX that are more suitable to the specified application but if you MUST use this kind of pex in such an application you should run the PEX through a PVC pipe.

Isn't PEX A higher quality and more flexible than the B or C?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, that's not really the case. Pex A is more flexible, but also has greater chemical leaching than B or C.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hot water cold feed A little difficult to strengthen especially in cold weather but superior to other products used for water lines in crawl spaces. Great for the job long runs require patients especially if working alone. Slower to burst in cold above 15 degrees including wind chill than any other product my home has had one rupture in 4 years the wind chill was 5 for 2 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!
