Well, in a sense I have
. It supplies my water so, kind of. This stuff is so much easier to work with than copper. (Try sweating a joint in 100 °F weather in a crawlspace that is full of old insulation, spiders and dust, where you can't even sit up and have to lay on your back.....I'll take the PEX
). One other nice thing is that it is less lossy (thermally) than Copper. Nothing wrong with good ole' Copper...but the price is ridiculous now, and it is much harder to work with.
Did I mention that once you crimp it, you are leak free (barring severe freezing with water in the lines...which would be the same thing with Copper anyhow)?
