PEX Piping


have PEX in my garage concrete floor. Last winter forgot to put the heat on in that zone and the Pex I believe froze and busted. Is there anything out there to put in the system to seal the broken pipe?

PEX Piping


I am not aware of anyway to repair the 'busted' under slab pex other than to break it out and replace the entire run. It's against code here to bury any connections in a slab.

PEX Piping


I've always seen "No fittings in concrete" for PEX tubing so a repair where concrete is filled back in would be against manufacturer's rules.

BTW is your PEX used for heating, or for potable water passing through the slab?
