Do you have underground rodents in your area? If so, they might chew through the PEX to get at the water. No personal experience but that's what I read when researching PEX for our home.

I've read that too, but i'm not sure what the difference between that and schedule 40 PVC or, HDPE piping would be.

I've never seen that happen in either case, around here, and we do have lots of gophers.
