Re: pin hole


Can i use a slip coupler for that being so close to the rafter knock out or should I just cut on the other side of the rafter?

Re: pin hole


Cut as convenient a few inches to either side of the hole. (The further the better so you can bend the PEX you'll be using.)

Install pex with sharkbite to replace the removed section.

No soldering required. No problem bending copper trying to get the coupling onto both ends (you'd want the solder coupling that does NOT have the dimple - you want the kind that can completely slide onto one side, then you align by sliding back over the hole and solder - if you enjoy soldering)

Or you can use the "snugger" type which slips, as required as shown; (I actually don't like these as the original copper has to be in very good condition and I'm paranoid the repair coupling might migrate...since only some O ring is holding it - I like sharkbite that has teeth to hold affixed)

Re: pin hole


Oh you're right about the dimple—I just saw the inline fitting and went with it.
