comment How should I configure my plumbing with PEX?
Yes - especially if I run the sink and shower together. In that case with the shower balanced between hot and cold, the sink hot is extremely low pressure while the cold is still pretty stable.

Sounds like latex, and no, washing it won't help the smell. It will only last a day or two. Get a small fan and put it in the door to help circulate the air in the room.

comment Is this plastic pipe connecting city water to the main line dangerous?
The two oversized connections at the end of the curved pipes at the water meter. They each are made up of two halves that screw together with a gasket in the middle.
