PEX Installation Book/Video

Posted by shadetree_programmer (My Page) on

Does anyone know of a DIY book or a Video dedicated solely to PEX Installation? I've been searching online with no luck. I have several plumbing books with a couple of pages devoted to PEX, but I want something more than just a couple pages to guide me.

Background:
I am adding a complete dormer to my 1-story ranch and want to running PEX plumbing for the 2 bathrooms upstairs. I am doing a lot of the work myself to save money. I've never plumbed anything before but I learn very quickly and consider myself mechanically inclined.

Any links to books or videos (online/VHS/DVD) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Shade

To answer my own question for everyone's benefit I finally (after 6 hours of searching) found this helpful guide:

http://www.toolbase.org/Design-Construction-Guides/Plumbing/pex-design-guide

It's a pretty good PDF with OK pictures (quality could have been better).
Hope this helps another DIY person out there!

What an interesting way to get people interested in reading! Book trailers are like movie trailers, but for books! You can find them all over the internet now, but here is a site that's featuring them on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/booktrailers
