Pipe Supports

Maximum horizontal
spacing of pex piping

Long runs of PEX pipe have to be supported with proper hangers. It is generally recommended to fasten the tubing at every 32 inches when running it alongside a joist and at least every 6 feet if the tubing is supported by beams and running across them. Plastic straps and hangers are recommended but metal supports that are designed for use with plastic tubing can also be used.

Generally as these poll questions are asked it is considered polite to wait a couple of days until you cut and paste the answer. But I must admit you guys have mad interweb skilz.
