what's best way to cut PEX?
I’m replacing my kitchen sink faucet and the current connection is PEX right up to the faucet. New faucet has supply hoses with 3/8 compression fittings so I’m thinking of cutting the PEX off just after the shut-off valve and then attaching some sort of PEX-to-compression adapter so I can hook up the supply lines to the new faucet. I’m not sure how to cut the PEX…use a tube cutter or just a utility knife or what? I may want to use a sharkbite connector after I cut it……..
Re: what's best way to cut PEX?
Most tubbing cutters will not cut Pex unless they have a plastic wheel. Which is taller and will cut deeper. You can use a utility knife just make sure the cut is square and no burr's if using a sharkbite. Good luck.
