Here is a quote from a thread on Sawmillcreek:

I sent an email to a company that supplies PEX ( here is what he said when I asked about using PEX for compressed air in a hobby woodworking shop

” Air is routinely used for pressure testing PEX plumbing systems, and we use it here to distribute the air for our air compressor, so I would say that it should not be a problem for you to do that.”

Then I asked about exposure to fluorescent lights in my shop. And his reply was:
“For best results, you will most likely need to cover it. PEX should not be exposed to direct UV light for more than 30 days. I will say, however, that the PEX we are using (for water and air) is exposed to direct fluorescent light and indirect sunlight and is performing well. Still, the recommendation is that it not be exposed to UV light.”

I used PEX for the first time to move a toilet supply in our basement. It is so much nicer to work with than copper.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
