Stop valves on pex tubing for vanity and toilet


Hey everyone, have a hopefully simple question that I am having difficulty wrapping my head around.

The house I live in will be replumbed to pex water lines, the lack of shutoffs, poor layout, abandoned lines, and adding another bathroom have made me want to replace everything with a pex system.

I have everything figured out except for how to finish out the stop valves in the current bathroom. The vanity and toilet each have one. I have been told to run a drop ear support behind the wall and stub out a pex line from it. How then do you dress the pex line and support it to prevent kinks? im aware you would have a very small amount of pipe showing, but it would be seen at the toilet I would imagine.

Am I overthinking this or is merit to this? Would this be the kit I need?

The new bathroom we used outlet boxes, I will have access to the wall but I do not want to use them in this case.

Thank you all!

Nope, use something like this.

Once the drywalls finished and painted you add an escuntion, cut off the copper stup out and add a right angle 1/4 turn stop.

I still go from pex to copper under the floor. I actually make all my copper drops, then just come through and connect the pex from under the floor. Oh, wait, you may not be able to soldier. Just do what Joe said

I stub out pex quite often. Cut the pex about 1.5" from the wall or floor and you won't see hardly any pipe- but if your using Uponor then you should use copper stub outs because of the size of the expansion ring. They are available in different lengths- straight or 90

Use the eschutcheon plate, then paint the pipe the color of the wall.
