Midway through pex.. Any tricks to get lines over to shower under floor?

I currently have the shower tub removed and can see the two lines that run from the area under the microwave across to back corner of the shower. However, the lines do not move freely so my plan of connecting the pb to new pex and pulling through the new line no longer sounds like a good idea.

Any tips?

They probably have some hose clamps holding them in place.. You could change what you can get to. Shark Bites work well for connecting pex to copper or for use in tight places. Other than that you would have to try and find where it goes.


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

I once owned an 89 excella.
The existing pipes run across the top of the fresh water tank and are probably being squeezed by the tank. You will likely have to drop the tank down a few inches in order to get the pex shoved through.
If the poly lines are still good consider a polybutylene pex adapter fitting on each end.
