Re: Pex pipe for camp?
Most of the plumbing inside my camp is Quest (gray flexible plastic/compression fittings). It takes more punishment than copper, easier to install and fairly bullet proof.
Been there since the mid 80s and the only problems I've had, were problems with "too much help" from others, that messed with my winter draining system. When I've set it up to drain after deer season and no one closed a valve afterwards, no problems.
Even with a few small problems, only had to redo the one or two joints that had popped apart a few times and we're good to go again. Never had a piece of it freeze/break yet.
Only problem: Not sure if they still make it? The hardware store near camp still carries the fittings, though.
