Pex and spray foam


I was told by the county plumbing inspector that pex might get damaged with some kinds of spray foam. Something in it eats away at the pex.. Is Great Stuff Gaps and Cracks ok to use with Wirsbo Pro-Pex (expansion)?

Thanks,


Jeff

He does not have a clue, Great stuff foam has no effect on it.
Very little effects PEX.

Plumbing pipes, now using PEX (cross-linkedpolyethylene) more frequently

Uponor (Iargest manufactuer of in-floor radiant heat tubing) has
a position memo

No chemical breakdown of their material

Using spray foams.
