How To Cut PEX

To properly cut PEX pipe, be sure to use the correct PEX Tool: a PEX Cutter. A PEX Cutter is specially designed to cut through PEX pipe evenly. Where a hacksaw or copper pipe cutter may leave jagged and rough edges, a PEX Cutter ensures a clean and smooth cut. When cutting PEX pipe, first use a permanent marker to determine where you are to make the cut. Next, open the blade on the cutter and place the PEX pipe inside. One firm squeeze will cut most of the way through the pipe. To finish, rotate the cutter a quarter-turn before cutting through the rest.
