Re: Now i AM worried!!!!

The actual insert that goes into the tube is brass, but I don't think I have ever seen the nut that connects to the bottom of the toilet fill valve in anything but plastic. Greg Really? Dang it! I was really wanting to get something better so I could feel better about this. I do not want my home fl...

Re: Now i AM worried!!!!

well, it already has cut off valves on that pipe so I can turn it off but as far as replacing that cheap plastic screw fitting, I don't really know how because it is crimped on the pex pipe and I don't have the pex crimping tool and wouldn't trust myself with one if I did..What about those shark bit...

Re: PEX, nervous..

If they are copper, are they dependable? Obviously they arent as good as stainless steel but... They are now 15 years old so i hope they are dependable..

PEX, nervous..

We have a 2000 oakwood double wide. It has PEX plumbing. I was noticing that the crimp clamps are black. I stuck a magnet to them and it didnt stick! That must mean they are plastic..? How does that work? They are completely smooth all the way around, like they are solid with no break in them UNLIKE...

Re: roofing question..

Not all metal roofs are screwed down, that is the most common and least expensive way. There is also a system that uses hidden fasteners. http://www.englertinc.com/blog/01-2014/concealed-fastener-systems-more-expensive-but-proven-to-last-in-standing-seam-systems/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-N...
