    Default MonoFlow and Pex

    I have a closed loop HW system that uses Monoflow tees to each fixture. The entire loop is suspended from my finished basement ceiling. I plan to finish off my basement and I want to recess the plumbing in the ceiling. I want to convert to PEX. Is there an equivalent PEX appropriate monoflow tee or do I have to stick with the copper ones? It will be annoying to switch from pex to copper so many times.

    No one makes a pex monoflow tee.

    A google search does did not turn up any PEX ones either

    Even the pexsupply site has only copper ones.

    I am thinking that you would be best off buying a good crimper and using ring crimp connections given the number of connections.

    That way all you can solder the three nipples into the T while on the workbench.

    At least you don't have to solder the copper pipes in the walls or up in the ceiling

    PS: To others out there (you know who you are) Don't cut the floor trusses to run pipes (Of course those kinds of people probably aren't on this forum)

    I suspect that if you run pex the restriction due to fitting turbulence will screw the whole system up.
