Flexible plumbing pipe
I’m plumbing the interior of my house with PEX and my exterior line will also be a 1” PEX line. I have a pipe sleeve running through the bottom of my footing, which then makes a 90 degree angle to come up through my basement slab. My original intention was to run the 1” PEX line through the sleeve and to the manifold. The problem I’ve run into is I can’t push the PEX line through that 90 degree angle, there just isn’t enough flexibility in the line.
So now I’m looking at other options like flexible stainless steel pipe that’s typically used for appliance hook ups. I think there’s also flexible PVC and a few other options.
Has anyone ran into this issue and have any recommendations?
