I also have a hard time plumbing a house with PEX. I used all copper line, soldered, the real way to do it. I cannot (would not) put plastic line in a wall where it could be punctured by a finishing nail. (a fricken mess) I would use hard PVC before I used flexy plastic poly ethlene or poly urethate tube. I am not claiming to be an expert, just trying to think with common sense. Also the push to connect fittings are nice........Only if they are in view, never behind a wall. I did use compression brass fittings for all my sinks and toilets when I built a home many years ago.

When you have acidic water, and I can think of three municipal supplies in the area off the top of my head, copper makes no sense. I knew of a good sized fifteen year old nursing home that had a guy pretty much full time pulling out sections of copper and replacing them. He could not go systematically through it because he kept getting called to emergency leaks.

I am no expert either but we used Zurn pex and crimp ring fittings to plumb up our OWB 6 years ago and have had zero problems so when the plumber reccmended pex to replumb a rental this past spring we said go ahead, time will tell. People say CPVC is junk too but when I was close to broke and had to replumb my home I had to use it,, that was 30 years ago and it is still in service, never a leak, never a problem.
