I am remodeling a bathroom. We’re going to lay new tile and replace a vanity. This requires removing the toilet and old vanity. In order to remove the old vanity I need to cut the PEX piping attached to the shut off valves for the faucet.

I have PEX caps and cinch rings, do those hold well enough so I can turn the water back on for a few days until I can get the new vanity installed?


Yes, they should work fine. Do you have the crimp tool?

Another option is to use a Sharkbite end cap.

    @EMAW2008 - Well you have the cinch rings -- But the question asked was if you have a proper crimping tool for those cinch rings. – Michael Karas Jul 26 '20 at 5:23
