For some time now I have wanted to get involved with PEX for some of
my small remodel jobs. I have hesitated due to the cost of the
crimpers for different size pipe. I was working the other day and the
electrician on the job said he used PEX in his own house and solvent
welded it to CPVC fittings with multipurpose (PVC, CPVS, ABS)cement.
I tried the fit and they seem to fit together. Is this a legitimate
way to join PEX and will it hold up over time?
