I have a baseboard hot water/boiler heating system in my house. There is a section of copper / heatfins that come down that I want to remove. It is 3/4" copper.
To do this, I would like to run the copper perpendicularly through the joists. My question would be the best way to do that.
Could I use flexible PEX and sharkbite it to the copper? Would the hot water compromise the fortitude of the PEX?
My initial though was to sweat several 20" pieces which I really, really do not want to do.
I could also run this underneath the joists, up against the wall, and notch the upper corner of the framing that will go in.
Thanks for the help!
