Should I be concerned about this PEX and UV?
I've read the various older posts, but am looking for some concrete answers here. I've recently run 3/4" PEX feed up to a bathroom. In is up in the joist bay in the basement, but near it is a CFL bulb (which I'm told gives off some UV rays when on). Then, it goes by a window where it's not exposed to direct sunlight, but certainly indirect at certain times of the day.
My question is do any of your pros have experience/clients who have PEX run in unfinished basements that have seen failures? Or is it really a direct-SUNLIGHT only issue that I don't really need to be concerned about in my unfinished basement?
Thank you in advance for any words of wisdom!
PS - you'll see in the one photo, I've started covering the PEX with foam pipe insulation (because I was scared). Is this prudent and if so, enough to protect the PEX?
