I need some experience plumbers eyes - Will this work
I wanted to get a clean look of having no pipework show on the baseboard.
Not being piped from the sides or bottom, etc.
It's a runtal baseboard that hangs on cleats - flush to the wall.
3" Closed Loop Running Above the ceiling.
Coming Down is 3/4" Black Pipe.
From there, I have Pex Stubbed out hanging 7 inches out of the wall capped.
Now in sitting here thinking how this thing will get both connected and hung, I think this is the best route.
Advise me otherwise if you have a better idea.
Connect Pex Adapter/Fittings to Pex. Shove inside wall with just the fitting I need to wrench on *Red Brass 1/2 - 3/4 Adapter*.
Pex can rotate if I recall. (new to pex so I may need to make a test connection and confirm again)
Have 2 helpers hold the 6 ft baseboa
Connect the 2 ends and wrench tight. Should be good to just tilt , cleat in and hang.
1/2 Close Nipple to go into baseboard - 1/2 - 3/4 Adapter, 3/4 Make - Pex
Doing it the other way - Having 2 helper hold the baseboard and then trying to expand the short pex out the wall and then getting it on might just be the harder way. There's only so much *SLOP* you can move the pex in this fashion
