    "I talked to one lf there reps at Radfest. he said 7 labs 7 results on the washington stuff. I gave him a 3/4 coupling I'd cut out because of split at the ring. Waiting to see? He thinks someone crimped it to tight? Who ever did that job also didn't support it well,12 ft and no hanger."

    That's the latest.
    Retired and loving it.

    What do they want

    PH-wise, what do they want to see as far as PH is concerned in their tube?

    acidity

    I don't see where acidity would be a problem unless the PEX inner liner was defective???
