OK To Use Flexible Hose Coupling In Spigot Application?


I am replacing a broken spigot due to pipe bursting. Spigot was not installed at an angle. In order to replace and angle it downwards, I won't have a straight approach to connect to the water line after going through the joist with copper pipe. Are there any concerns (code or reliability) of using a Sharkbite style flexible hose like this to make the connection easy?

Sorry but i dont understand the question. Can you post a picture or 2? Sharkbites are fine as far as code is concerned. What do you mean by "spigot"? A faucet, a hose bibb, or something else? Can you cut the copper pipe and install pex from that point? Sharkbites will allow a pex to copper connection. Again I am not there and can't see what you are trying to do so please give more details.

It's an outside faucet/sillcock. In the image below, I'd be cutting out everything to the right of the floor joist. Then drilling another hole a few inches above the existing one, so I connect the new faucet along with enough copper pipe to reach through the other side of the floor joist (this will provide the constant downward angle out of the house. From the left side of the floor joist is where I was going to use a flexible hose to connect to the water line.

You cannot use a flex connector in that type of application. Build a swing joint (2 90's) out of copper of the pitch change is that great
