I always used sweat connections to supply tubes.
Now when i go to Home Depot they push flexible hose 's with compression
They will make the job alot easier.but how long will they last without leaks
Are they safe to use ?
Most PEX installs I've seen use 6" copper stubs through the wall. Once the
drywall is up you'd be hardpressed to tell it isn't copper throughout.

I have never seen a sweat connection from the shutoff valve to the faucet,
not even on my MIL's 1920 house. Must be before my time. The pros use copper
tubing but it still have compression fittings at both ends, not soldered.
Those copper tubing is a pain in the ass when changing out fixtures and
often ended up replacing it with flex lines anyway.
