pex toilet and faucet hook up


I was at the big box store and saw a toilet to pex supply line that has built in stop valve and also a faucet to pex supply lin that also has a built in stop valve, do I just drill a hole through the drywall and run the pex through with this http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite...9#.UnFge77D9Fo for stub out thanks

Wrong part, use one of these instead.
It has a plate on it that gets nailed to the stud. No need to bend the pipe.

Not sure what you're trying to accomplish- both links are used to stub water supplies out to a fixture.
One is all pex to the pex stop valve. The other converts pex to copper, then a compression stop- no soldering needed
Both will work

thanks the way I have it set up is pex coming from the ceiling down the stud cavity then using the metal support it'll make a 90 then come out the wall to a pex stop valve. Im closing up the wall this weekend and wanted to know if that was acceptable.

This one has a hole for attaching to wood- http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite...7#.UnGSX3Bwp7s
It will probably stick out the wall though.
Joe's link is a good solution- with it you use a 5/8compx3/8comp stop. From there you use pex or flex supplies the fixture.

Another method is to use a pex 90 instead of bending the pipe.

I tried the plastic bend support but didn't like so I went to metal. I don't have any copper in my house which was built last year so im trying to find the easiest solution for the supply to vanity sink and toilet. The toilet I have a drop ear mounted to a 2x blocking that has pex coming in and I have a 4 inch nipple installed but im thinking about removing it and either using the metal support or using a pex 90 elbow to a stop valve but I need some reassurance that what im doing is correct

is the consensus that bending the pex like that is not good and I should use the 90 elbow instead

I just found these http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite...6#.UnGbvb7D9Fo

No clue why your suggesting using all those fittings.
And I for sure would not be using a drop elbow. If you use that the shut off can turn.
That one stub out I suggested will do the same thing with one fitting and it's cheaper.

I would consider it if I knew how to hook it up but I've never seen one of those before

Nail to stud, slide crimp ring and Pex over barbed fitting, and crimp the ring, done with the plumbing.
Once the sheet rocks in place you cut the stub out about 2" from the wall and install a 5/8compression stop on the copper line.
No pipe tape, no threads to leak, no soldering.

im more a visual type so do I install blocking then cut a hole for the stub out and the vertical piece gets connected to the pex? I don't see how you can connect it to a stud. Im more concerned about the toilet then the vanity sink since the supply lines will be hidden in the vanity.

Go in your bathroom or kitchen and look at the supply line. What do you see? A short piece of pipe sticking out of the wall.
Same thing you would see with a Pex stub out.
The plate on it has holes so you can pound some 1-1-/4 roofing nails into it.
No need for any blocking or drilling any holes.
If it makes you feel better add a block above or below it but no need to feed the stub out through it.

There's going to be an trim ring and the valve so you should only see a tiny bit of it if you cut the pipe right.
