    Default Can you reuse brass fitting when working with PEX

    Maybe this is obvious to some, but I want to be sure to avoid headaches in the future...

    I want to replace a valve in a PEX run, and plan on removing the existing valve by removing the PEX by cutting the crimp ring off one side of a brass elbow like the one pictured.

    I would then crimp new PEX pipe onto side of the elbow from which I cut the ring.

    Will this work, or am I inviting trouble by reusing the elbow?
