I am trying to rough in my basement bath, and I have used PEX piping for the entire job. I am trying to install my shower valve, and was curious on what the correct way to connect PEX piping to shower valve?
I purchased a Moen Shower Valve with interior threads, do i attach the PEX directly to the hot and cold water holes with an adapter or do I attach a few inches of copper and then attach the PEX to the copper pipes sticking out of the valve?
Same with the connection from the valve to the shower head? Do i have to sweat the copper pipes and attach it to the shower head? or can I just go PEX from the valve to the shower head.
Both the shower head and valves have female threaded holes.
Thanks for the help in advance.
