One More Question About Our Old Guy Plumber
One more question. When he converted the top of the MPT washing machine box to pex, he did not use any tape. He only used pipe dope.
Also, we are running all Pex A and he used a Pex B barb connection and a crimp ring. Not the copper type, but the stainless crimp rings.
I don't want to insult the old duffer, but I really would like to replace those with PEX A to FPT connections with tape and use the proper expansion fitting. What do you think?
