The plumbers I know will tell you that the proper equipment and the time you spend getting used to using Pex on your first Pex job, are the last time you will wonder if you've done the right thing. It's addictive, they will try to talk you into Pex every time. I had a plumber who refused to work with any other pipe.
Never had a leak, never had a frozen pipe to burst, even when I had 3 houses under construction with no heat in mid winter.
Pull off 30' of pipe and make 5 turns and use 2 connectors, one at each end. Great time saver and LOTS less fittings to buy!... after the first job anyway
