Has anyone tried using PEX tubing for their keg lines? It is used in plumbing potable water systems, so I am thinking it should work OK, but before I screw something up, I figured I'd ask.

You need 3/16 I.D. I have never seen pex that small. IF it were that I.D. it would work fine might need to lower pressure due to lack of expansion...........my.02
Also, pex is rather rigid, and that would make a mess to have 12 feet of it all over the kegerator.
While working in the industry I never saw stainless fittings, only brass. I don't like the idea of brass and beer but that's just me. Also I am pretty sure vinyl would be cheaper and easier.
Any reason you want to use pex?
it would be awful hard to bend and probably kink inside of a keezer
I don't always trust the stuff at the hardware store to be capable of not imparting flavors to my beer. I finally found a LHBS that is within a reasonable distance (gotta go to IL), so it isn't a problem.
