    Existing Home is all copper water feeds.

    Can a mix of PEX and copper be used in a home? In some ways PEX is easier to feed as you do not need to solder pipes together at every single turn / change of direction. Can it be used for both hot and cold water feeds and go from copper to copper?

    Sure you mix them. You need an adapter to switch from copper to PEX.

      Hey Guys well i think that PEX will be more durable than copper long lasting as it is more immune to damage and freeze the action.Pex does not have to be a manifold program.Thanks!!

        Yes you can actually mix copper and PEX, Chrisb is right you just only need adapter to switch from copper to PEX.
