Replacement valve for PEX.

I replaced both my kitchen and vanity faucets before opening the camper for the season. To make it easier,I installed Sharkbite push to connect valves in the lines in the kitchen and vanity sinks. EZ hookup.Click image for larger version

Good job!

Out of curiosity, what was wrong with the originals?

Pex tubing hooked up straight to the faucets. Wanted to add shutoff at the faucets.

I think I will look for some tomorrow at HD. I also want to add valves for freshwater and low point pexs. Right now everything is just capped.

I got lucky as my low point drains run thru a storage compartment I was able to use some brass pex ball valves and I installed them in there.

Maybe they were under my nose but I didn’t see any PEX tubes other than long rolls at HD and Lowes. The two guys I asked were not familiar with PEX.

Do they sell shorter lengths of PEX for repairs or alterations? I don’t need a 100 feet.

I have bought five foot lengths of PEX at both Home Depot and Lowes. Also at Tractor Supply. If the guys you asked were employees in that section and they did not know about PEX they should be working in another department in MHO.
