Correct and I mentioned that same thing in my first post. If I had it to do over I would use the for my outside water where max flow would be a good thing at least for cold.

Frodo our resident plumber I remember telling me some good points about having the but right now I don’t remember what they were.

When I did mine there wasn’t a lot of information on here about PEX and it underwent some problems early on if I remember. I was moving in this house with the plan on patching a couple leaks in the old plumbing and each time I fixed one leak I found two more. After two days of messing around I said that’s it I’m starting from scratch with PEX. I found a old plumber Bo working at Home Depot and he was so helpful. 50 years in the trade and didn’t need a job as much as he wanted to help people. I still try and give him a hug when I see him lol, but he says none of that.

The nice thing about home runs is you don’t have connectors in the walls. Run the PEX just like it was wires.
