    Default two water service lines?

    Strange new construction condo/townhouse has two, count 'em, two copper water service lines in the basement. I'm waiting for the condo association to return my call.

    I disclaim fire suppression systems, but, just a thought - is PEX acceptable for such a system?

    John,

    I know you also wrote up all that improperly supported PEX going to the manifold.

    I'm not sure that blue PEX is listed for sprinkler use, thought it was not??
