Pex b fittings
I’m plumbing my house with pex b and have to settle on fitting type.
My water is low ph to the point where brass is not an option, so it’s either plastic fittings or ss.
I’m using 1/2 pex and a home-run system with manifold at my source.
I’m leaning towards ss fittings because of corrosion resistance, strength, and less flow restriction. If I understand correctly, plastic fittings, though cheaper, restrict flow the greatest amount. But at first look I don’t see as wide availability for ss fittings.
My preference is for highest quality and performance, particularly regarding the ph. Am I on the best track considering ss, or is the flow restriction and lesser strength of plastic fittings not really an issue?
