Question for PEX Gurus
Alright I admit I'm learning all this plumbing stuff as I go along. It's been a good experience, however, and I've learned quite a bit. But I have had to learn by trial and error.
I recently had PEX plumbing installed in my bathroom and will eventually complete the job this winter by doing the kitchen, too. I've noticed that PEX is not very plyable, its very rigid, especially if you have short pieces.
My question is this: Do you use PEX when you connect directly to your toilet, sinks and shower/tub? Seems like hoses or braided silver flex hoses with the proper fittings would make things a lot easier, connection wise.
For example, I tried to connect PEX directly to my toilet and found it wasn't flexible enough to obtain a good fit and the connection leaked. Is this just me or have others found this, too?
