My wife and I have a cabin. My best friend is my neighbor. When his water heater crapped out. I ran 200 feet of pex from my cabin to his cabin. Just laid it on the ground. Put one of those Shark Bite push connect quarter turn valves on too. We did it “temporarily” so he and his wife would have hot water for the weekend. Ten years later that pex pipe and valve are still laying outside on the ground in the North East Pennsylvania weather. The sun, rain, snow haven’t bothered it yet. It’s a Summer cabin so it gets antifreeze over the winter. I was worried about UV too. Stopped worrying about UV 5 years ago….lol

I think it’s a pretty cool Idea to use Pex for an air line.
