How about getting 10ft, or 20ft lengths of 2" pvc pipe (or 3" if needed), and run the pex piping inside the pvc pipe to act as a sleeve. This will give the pex continuous support. Just hope you figured it into cost.
I was working at a workout gym, a few months back. I noticed the pex lines running along the back wall, were all drooped atleast 4ft in some places, on the hot side. The pipes were all insulated with black armaflex, & the wall was painted black, so no-one even noticed it. The 1" pex was only supported about every 10ft to 12ft. I made the owner aware, but of course he aint gonna spend the money to fix, & says its the building owners responsibility. It looked like a disaster waiting to happen, at any time, & soon. This building is only 3yrs old.
