pride of workmanship...and i would strap it up because every time it is being used it could chaff on the floor and cause it to fail by wearing a hole in it..

pex is the way to go in cold a climate, just had a tenant call with a frozen line to the
upstairs bathroom. Inspection revealed on the outside wall caps from blown in insulation had fell out allowing cold air into the wall cavity. GreatStuff, a small temp space heater just to thaw the line and back in business! Thankfully I put in that pex home run!
