I'm no plumber, but I have seen plenty of good and plenty of bad. It would be one thing if you chewed the guy down to nothing on the price, but if someone asked me to "fix" something, I would explain what the course of action was and the price would be before I hacked my way to a cheap and dirty fix. I hate seeing sharkbites and pex where there is load on the connections and the pipe is basically unsupported.
I don't know Upnor's product line, but is that red the correct pipe for domestic use??? The rest looks like aquapex, but if that red pipe is another brand, your not supposed to be using expansion fittings with it.
