Plugging outdoor kitchen water lines

Guys I would to unhook and plug the water lines going to the outdoor kitchen sink on my wildwood 27dbk. Just wondering if anyone knows what I need to accomplish this. Is it just a plug or do I have to crimp a pex plug in the lines. Thanks for your help

you could either crimp a pex plug in or use Shark bite fittings

Be careful. When it comes time to winterize, will there be water in the line? Rather than plugging, you might want to just add a couple valves and caps, similar to what we do on low point drains. Either that or cut and plug the lines right at the Tee off the main line, where ever that may be.

Wouldn't it be better to add valves to the lines? Then if you or a future owner wanted to use the kitchen again, you could turn them back on. Just a thought.

I just took the faucet off, I was hoping I could just buy a plug that would screw into the black collar that is crimped on the end of the pex, that way a future owner could go back to stock if they choose.

you would have no way to winterize the line that way. Need to disconnect from wherever it feeds from.

What if I pulled the plugs to winterize? Would that work? I just don't see anyway that those lines aren't going to leak with rolling the shelf in and out, that's why I just want to take the faucet out and plug the lines off.

Yes, so long as you can remove the plugs and either blow out the lines or pump antifreeze into them, you should be OK. But a valve and cap would make this easier to do.

So what I picked up at HD today were 2 brass 1/2" boiler drain valves. I'm hoping these will allow me the flexibility to cap the lines, while still being able to open the valves to winterize and another added benefit is they have hose threads so if I wanted to I could hook a hose up to cold or hot water side. Thanks for the help guys, if anyone thinks there is an issue with this setup please let me know.
Thanks again
Jody
