comment How do I easily separate unglued PVC pipe from joints?
PVC fitting are also tapered which makes it hard to get the pipe all the way on when dry fitting (as well as taking them apart after). In addition, if you get any dirt/grit in the hub of the fitting, it will be that much harder to take apart. If you're having a hard time using just your hands, you an use a hammer to tap on the face of the fitting. Do this lightly and go all around the circumference of the fitting. If you hit too hard the fitting will misalign and get harder to remove.

comment How do I cap off an unused refrigerator water line?
@Steven I would agree too, but it would be best to still cap the end of the line to prevent any accidental damage.

comment Does Pex tubing have any advantages over copper?
While soldering may still may be the most common method of joining copper pipe it should be noted that alternates such as ProPress and SharkBite exist that do not require solder and flux.

comment Should I use glue or o-ring joints on a buried PVC waste pipe?
No problem, glue is just easier as you don't have to deal with pushing the jacketed fittings together which can take some pressure. You should confirm that the pipe/fitting material is approved for your application with your local code.
