Re: Pex or Copper for re pipe
I can see that PEX would be a problem in this situation. If the regulators are unreliable and fail on the side of overpressure... ouch. You almost need a pressure-activated valve: if the pressure exceeds a certain amount, the valve closes and must be manually reset. Don't know if such a thing exists; maybe I just invented it! Be sure to put my name on the patent application.
