PEX expansion loop

Posted by leslie_gardener (My Page) on

Hi all:
I'll be running two lengths of PEX, maximum run 40ft.
The end of the runs will end in a stud bay to connect to shut-off valves.
Will leaving slack in the bay satisfy the expansion issue or does slack have to be spread over the length of the run?.

Thank you

Slack is equal to 10% of the run and it should be evenly spread out.
