PEX and sunlight?
I just posted over on bathrooms asking how to secure PEX lines when nearest stud is 4" away on one side and 9" away on other. Got that figured out, but one person warned me about "light" (apparently only UV) and PEX. I am worried now, haven't finished installation but cousin had this PEX stored in his garage for a year.
Bigger problem - we built modular home 5 years ago, lots of exposed PEX in a walkout basement with a south-facing window. DH noticed a lot of the clamps have come off or are broken along the east wall. Inspector never said anything about having to cover the PEX in the basement ceiling (put in dropped ceiling?) in this unfinished space when we got the CO. Neither did the plumber who made the on-site connections.
I also never put a countertop on the vanity in the master bathroom, with east window in opposite wall. PEX stubbed out to shutoffs in there, just a couple inches worth.
Is all my PEX (in bathroom vanities and in basement) going to leak b/c it's been exposed to (weak?) sunlight in the past 5 years?
