ProPEX to Brass Female NPT Threaded Adapters connect PEX-a tubing to male NPT threads. Note: ProPEX Tool is required. ProPEX Rings must be purchased separately.

                                          Yes you can. Typically both the hot and cold connections are made via a dielectric union to eliminate bimetallic corrosion and to allow pipe disconnection. Because you're using PEX you won't have corrosion problems, but you may still want to incorporate a union between the PEX fitting and the water tank on both the hot and cold line to facilitate line removal for tank replacement in the future. Your other option would be to leave enough extra tube so you can cut the tube in the future and still have enough remaining to reconnect the tank.

                                          It will work fine, but eventually brass will oxidize galvanized. Not a 50 year fix, but I'd guess you should get at least 10 if its solid now. I'd use teflon paste and tape.

                                        Is there a gasket inside the ProPex LF Brass female adapter? Can gaskets be purchased separately and replaced when they wear out without putting on a new adapter? I have two rentals with Wirsbo fittings that are about 20 years old. I had to take apart a fitting and the gasket popped out. It is pretty dried out. I put it back in and it is holding, but I want to replace gaskets if I can

                                        What is the minimum ID of the 3/4" ProPEX female NPT adapter? It is not on their 24284_Prod_File.pdf. I am interested in minimizing flow restrictions as much as possible as I have low mains water pressure. Shark bites seem to have significantly smaller ID's than the corresponding PEX tubing the fittings are designed for and I don't want to run into that problem with alternate fittings.

                                          That's the beauty of the Wirsbo/Uponor expansion fitting system, exactly!
                                          The ID of the 3/4" pipe is 3/4", obviously. But the ID of the 3/4" fittings
                                          and adapters? Also 3/4" ! Because you stretch the PEX to go onto the
                                          fitting (for which you need the special expansion tool), the ID remains the
                                          nominal size throughout all fittings, and pressure is unrestricted. Other
                                          things can still affect pressure, of course, like turbulence, leaks, etc,
                                          but not the fittings.

                                          The ID of the end of the 3/4 in NPT to PEX adapter is 5/8 in. That's one of the reasons I went with Wirsbo ProPEX for my house. The orifices on he fittings are larger than Nibco PEX and most other brands. That being said, my water pressure and volume improved but it was not as much as I had hoped for. The 3/4" water main that feeds the house is the limitation now.
                                          Good luck with whatever you decide!

                                          The inside diameter of all ProPex fittings is approximately the same as the I.D. of the tubing, that is one of the primary advantages of the ProPex system. The tubing is expanded to go over the fitting rather than the tubing being crimped down onto the fitting as in other connection types.

                                          ProPEX fittings have approximately the same inside diameter as PEX tubing, making them the best option for maximizing flow through PEX fittings. 3/4" PEX has a .671" ID.

                                        Q:

                                        I am thinking of using this fitting to connect my supply line to the 3/4" Male NPT x MANABLOC Supply Adapter, SKU 46646. Is the use of Teflon tape required, recommended, or not needed when connecting this fitting the 3/4" Male NPT x MANABLOC Supply Adapter?

                                          Yes the use of plumbers tape or other thread sealing product is needed at the NPT to NPT connection.

                                        How is this adaptor secured so the sillcock can be removed later? Or do you need to cut into its location to hold it while the sillcock is removed?

                                          You will want to leave some slack in the PEX so you can pull the sillcock out of the wall to remove it from the female fitting.

                                          This fitting will work with a hose bib that is 3/4" NPT. Generally, hose bibs are either 1/2" or 3/4", so start by verifying which size you have and then select the appropriate fitting.

                                          This fitting can be used on any shower valve that has a 3/4" male NPT connection. If your shower valve has this connection, then this fitting is compatible.
