I'm remodeling my kitchen and found that the piping coming into the house transitions from 3/4 HDPE to 1/2" galvanized. The old galvanized piping is terribly corroded and for simplicity sake I would like to replace it with PEX. Is there a good way to adapt from HDPE to PEX? Is there a Sharkbyte that would work? The spot where the HDPE goes to galvanized is in a very awkward place, that would involve probably tearing out part of a wall (I've already got a big hole in the floor cut out). Any advice would be very welcome. - thanks

No one?

Hasn't anyone ever tried connecting PEX to HDPE? I'm nervous about using a barbed fitting with hose clamps, they just always seem to leak, so I"m looking for something that is a rock solid connection. - thanks again
