Forum Title: Cleaning out old Pex tubing that has been laying around?
I'm redoing the water lines in my house to remove the old galvanized pipes and soldered copper I currently have. I've got some old pex tubing (new, but unused/lying around for a few years). I see spiderwebs/cob webs, etc in it. What's the best way to clean/flush it out and sanitize it? I have a beer line cleaner I was going to use originally but now I'm thinking it might only be designed to deal with old beer byproducts. Is a diluted bleach solution my best option? Lol, or just waiting until the supply houses open tomorrow and buying new pipe? (I just decided to do this project yesterday and I couldn't get new pipe on the weekend. I've had problems with the shark bite/cheaper stuff they sell at home depot in the past and don't want to use it) Thanks

Primer on PEX? Never heard of it.

Wash it out with water and most supply stores have primer that cleans them very well
