Thread: undoing Pex pipe fittings

  1. #1

    Default undoing Pex pipe fittings

    Hi. I just recently bought a motorhome and the PO redid the plumbing with pex pipe. That's all well and good except the water heater is leaking. Is there any way to get the pex fittings loose without destroying them? I don't have the tools to redo the fittings so I am wondering what my options are. Thx for any help!!

    Probably around $10 a fitting. GOOD LUCK
