I would not recommend using PEX tubing. It is designed to hold water. We fill the pipe with water and use a hydraulic pump to test it so there won’t be any injuries if a joint fails or the pipe fails during testing. This can be very dangerous. Imagine you are in the shop and one day accidentally cut the pipe with something sharp while the pipe is under pressure? I would only recommend steel or copper pipe.
