    Short and sweet for your experts. Cold water feed above ground in house and also for central heating use. Don't want to have to buy two different as the Cold water feed is such a small distance. Pex is alot cheaper, can I use for both instances or is it best to buy the dearer and just use that for both?

    pex whilst cheaper is more rigid, not as easy to work with. I'd go with polybutylene PB.

    AFAIK all Speedfit has a barrier in it - i.e. BPEX. Polybut is a lot easier to work with, not quite the untamed python!

    Copper mate. Only cowboys fits Speedfit. That is why I use Speedfit all the time.
