1/2" Pex vs 5/8" Pex

Need some help... I have mostly 5/8" pex running through my house and I need to move/replace a busted freezeproof spigot. All the freeze proof spigots I have found use 1/2", and locally, 1/2" pex/couplings/tools/et al are widely available. I haven't been able to find any 5/8" pex supplies yet (at least not at Ace or Home Depot). I found from PexUniverse they have a reducing coupler from 5/8 to 1/2 inch, but they are out of stock for at least a month.

So.... my question is, what are my options? The size is not too far off... would I be able to use 1/2" pex on a 5/8" adapter? Can I use 5/8" pex on a 1/2" adapter? Any other ideas?

nvm I'm a noob. I looked harder: 1/2" CST 5/8" OD so... I guess it's 1/2" after all.

yay me.

Not sure about adapters, but 1/2" is the most popular size of PEX.

Are you sure your old stuff is pex, or is it gray polybutylene?? Different ID's.
