It is an after thought and I will have to re due some stuff. I have things figured a different way but I got to looking and wondered why a guy could not run pex under a stud or 2 and with in the floor with the 1inch insulation. It would be in hallway so would the foot traffic be to much for the pex? It would be within the sub floor and then the floor over top of that. Our layout puts shower on one side and everything else on the other. I figured if you could do this it would save time, $ and less pex to have problems.


So would that work?
Thanks

Do it! That PEX is extremely durable. And if you're not comfortable as it is... 1/2in PEX will slip right inside 3/4in PEX... I did that on my storage building at the bottom plates.

I haven't tried it, but there's videos out there that test PEX's capabilities... Such as freezing water, letting the pipe swell, then watching it shrink back down when ice thaws.

I got called in to work yesterday and so I had all day to think about it at work. Got home and when ahead a decided to go for it. I had read on hear people say that the pex holds up better for vibration than PVC / cpvc so figured it should be strong enough for what little weight would be on it. Wasn't till late last night I saw your reply and video too. So I think it should work.

Thanks for the reply and video
