Forum Title: 3/4 Pex inside of 3/4 Pvc???
Hey guys new to forum......I am wondering how hard ,or if anyone has experience in pushing a 3/4" Pex sold at Lowes inside of a existing run of 3/4" schedule 40 Pvc for my main water line to my house? I have a leaking line and its nearly 250'. I was at Lowes today looking at Pex and Pvc and saw where 3/4" Pex slides through 3/4" Pvc pretty well..... I only have one spot to worry about when it turns up into the house but i think i can dig it out pretty easy......(under the house in a crawls space). I just don't want to dig up the yard and i would have to move how the existing line comes into the house due to pouring of concrete after waterline installation. Donny

And even if you did manage to get it through, 250' of 3/4 PEX, plus the insert fittings, you will not have very good water pressure.

You are not going to be able to push 250 feet of people if it does fit. Any turns and your screwed plus it is to long of a run in would find bad section and repair also might wanna put a pressure regarding at meter depending on city pressure

I am a little skeptical it would work anyway .....finding the leak has been difficult.....
