PEX

Replumbing the entire house with PEX.

Research has givin me the following bullet points

Use a crimp tool and crimp rings not a cinch tool
use manifolds for cold AND hot
have a shutoff before manifold and after
    after goes to a common drain line
go 100% PEX, all the way to the faucet shutoff
use red and blue pex for hot and cold

    Hardest part of this project will be removing the old plumbing that goes through the floor.  I also do not want to do this project will I have a whole house water filter and softener to make sure the lines never have gunk in them like the current pipes do.
