How do I remove pex fittings

Hopefully my picture will show up. Removed the water filter. Now need to connect with a shark bite fitting but will need to remove the white connectors first. How do I do this?

if you have a few extra inches of pipe to spare just cut it.

For myself, the easiest thing to do is just cut the tubing below the nipple of the fitting (the part inside the tubing) to get to the part of the tubing that hasn't been deformed by crimping. Then just add in the necessary length of additional tubing to replace where the filter was.

I think i should have some room to spare. I assume I need to grab a pex pipe cutting tool?

any heavy duty tubing cutter will cut the 1/2 inch stuff.

I just used a box cutter on mine, but a tubing cutter would leave a nicer edge.

Thanks everyone. I cut the pex pipes and attached with a shark bite. Real test is when I turn on the water

I agree. Almost felt like something was wrong how easy it was to put together. Ran water through the system and so far so good. Finally, got that water filter removed. On my mind the past few months.

Just sanitized the fresh water tank so that's done (don't usually use it). nice to have a free day to get things done
