I have a plumbing situation where I have a lot of twists and turns so I was thinking of using Pex. I have read that it is proprietary in that you must commit to using one specific and expensive brand of tool. I am wondering what brand I should choose. I would like it to be reasonably priced, and be able to get plumbing parts easily.
If it matters I live in the Flint area of Michigan. Thanks in advance to all who answer.
In terms of pex piping, the whole line of this "new age" product is relativelty efficient, and is also cost effective. Personally, If you have a One of the big construction salers around you, they have a reasonably priced pex piping that can withstand freezing and thawing many times without any concern of bursting. (good stuff). As for parts, I personally use almost entirely Shark Bite, or easy connect fittings, they come in all standard sizes, and for the convienience, are just too good to pass up. Hope this helps.
