Question on using the PLEX: I am in the process of replacing my plumbing with Snake Bite. Wonderful system - easy to use and no leaks, etc. Only problem I have is that the pipe comes in a roll and will not straighten out!
I have to push 2 runs behind my shower and I need it straight. Tried a heat gun and it helped a little, but still curved. Any suggestions?

Have you pulled out the old stuff? You could tape one end if the PEX to the old stuff then use it to pull the PEX through. Or you could get a 10' section that's sold as a straight piece and use it as a pull for the coiled stuff by taping the ends.

Thanks, didn't know you could buy it in straight lengths. Will start looking!
Thanks again!

I bought a 10' stick of 1/2" and a 5' stick of 3/8" Sunday at Home Depot. Unfortunately, the sticks only come in white; however, I'm going to wrap my piping with insulation so white will do in my case. To differentiate the piping, I will put some red/blue electrical tape around the insulation.....at least that's my plan at this point.
I am trying to decide whether or not to remove the leaky regulator and not replace it since most places with "city" water is regulated already.

IMO when you go to all PEX you won't need a regulator, I didn't use one.
