Blind ending trunks in PEX plumbing, problem?

drtechnoOctober 21, 2010

Quick question.

The plumbers just redid a portion of the plumbing (its all PEX) and there are now a couple 1-2 ft blind ending trunks in the plumbing (the branch point is before the end due to modification of the plumbing). Is this a problem? Won't this develop stagnant water quality issues?

Just looking for opinions from people that know more than me.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Just to clarify, the length of the "dead end" is under 2 ft (probably 1.5 ft)
