Forum Title: Quick PEX Question
You know how manufactureres say do not scratch the PEX tube as scratches may become leaks in years to come? My question is what is their definition of a scratch? Everything has scratches of various degrees. Installing PEX without some sort of scratches is close to impossible. I have attached a picture of my PEX tube with scratches and wondering if I need to replace it as it has some scratches or if it is going to be okay? Many thanks in advance.

I would be more concerned with using shark-bite fittings in concealed areas.

I honestly don't think you could uncoil PEX and install it without touching an object and leaving blemishes. I wouldn't worry about it. A gouge, nick, or a cut is a different story.
