That saved a ton of work and looks great. I’m curious why he used PVC instead of PEX?
The "he" you are referring to would be me, and I had to look up PEX to find out what you were talking about. Most of the fittings I used were left over from building rocket racks, and the six fittings and valve that I needed were purchased in one trip to Home Depot, with mask and sanitizer. The handyman gave me tips to help me do the job, but didn't help do it.
Reading up on PEX, it has the same vulnerability to UV light, but is more resistant to freezing, which may never occur on the South side of my house. Much different in Montana I presume....
