I need to run some pex from my basement to an unattached garage about 20ft away. Geeting it to the frost line and to the garage I don't need help on.
What I need to know is that when I get to the garage, I'd like to keep it as painless as possible.
First question is what you do to protect from freezing as you rise up above the frost line ?? Just insulate really well?
And secondly -- I guess the ideal way is to go under or through the footings (that would be a *&^) and up through the slab?
But I'm hoping that somehow I can come up the side of the footings and into the cinder block and then into the wall of the garage, ? Life would be so much easier but again what do you do to protect the pex from freezing?
thanks very much -- looking to hear definitive answers -- please don't "guess".
