Finally got the water going at the new cabin only to discover that pipes everywhere (throughout basement and crawlspace) seem to be busted. Based on the sheer number of issues I'm thinking it makes sense to just replum the runs using PEX. For the folks that have done this before I had some questions. 1. Does it make sense to install a manifold to manage the water distribution. 2. What crimping method is recommended? It seems like the most prevalent is the copper ring approach, but what is typically considered the best approach. 3. I'm just re-pluming the main runs and didn't plan on touching the final couple of feet (copper), so does it make sense to sweat in a PEX connection to the copper or use one of those shark-bite adapters? 4. Anything else I need to consider?
