i have a 25 yr old house that has seen it's second failure.
we have 3/4 tubing running over head with copper fittings. the fittings seem to be failing once in 2009 and now just last week.
the 2009 resulted in big water damage, the last was caught early.
in 2009 the plumber used shark fittings and as done in minutes.
the last failure i went and bought the fittings myself and did the quick repair. i was planing on replacing all the fitting on the plumbing. now i'm thinking i should replace the tubing also, my question is what material should i use????
cpvc, pex or what else is out there and what offers the best,yet econimical solution and should i contunue pex with the shark fittings or should i go with cpvc and glue.
we live in Fla. no basement. so i'm going overhead with some drywall acess and some exterior sideing removal.
i want to do this once and be done with it!!!
