Thanks for all the responses folks. I have used a rubber connector that has hose clamps on each end, but only for waste pipe, and I thought about using something like that to transist to Pex.
However, Tony has give me a good idea. I believe there is a reasonable amount of room to work in the water heater closet, and the pipes in question run under the length of the tub before running under the house.
If I can figure where those pipes go under the house (and I think its only about a foot away to the washer supply lines, can’t figure where else it would go on that side of the home), I can run Pex from the WH to the washer supply lines under the tub and partially through the wall.
Thanks all, you’ve given me some ideas!
