Help! Major leaking! I need to transition from polybutylene (I think) piping 1/2"CTS x 5/8" OD to 1/2" x 3/4 OD PEX pipe then to new spillcock/faucet OR from the 5/8" od pipe to a new very long spillcock/faucet somehow?

So here's the deal. The mobile home that my fiance purchased has plumbing from your worst nightmares. There are literally 5 kinds of piping running through this trailer and it's all rigged up all different sizes. Basically you're just seeing rig jobs on top of rig jobs. This is 100% a case of "I'll never have to fix it in my time again" from the previous owners. We have a section of what I think might be gray polybutylene piping/tubing. On the tubing the but of info I can make out says this : IAPMO 18 22-81. 1/2" CTS x 5/8" OD. 0( OR 9 I CANT READ OT WELL) 62 C 3-27. This gray tubing connects to a rigged up metal adapter that then connects to an outdoor faucet/sillcock. Well the adapters have corroded are leaking and looks like might be a tiny hole in the rube near adapter it anyway. The outdoor faucet is broken and needs replaced anyway. I can't find adapters to go from this little gray pipe into a faucet/spillcock or into 1/2 PEX. I wanted to get a push to connect PEX outdoor faucet and then a shut-off valve before the faucet to turn off in the winter. But the push to connect valve won't work with the 1/2" CTS x 5/8th of tubing/piping. Those numbers I pulled off on that section of tubing that I was able to read by the way. The push to connect valve I wanted is 1/2 - 1/2 ID but needs to have 3/4 OD not 5/8th. The quick push connect I was going to try isn't going to work. ⁉️When I was looking online I saw SHARKBITE makes a quick push connect transition coupler that is supposed to go from polybutylene tubing and can then transition into the half inch PEX pipe. I didn't read anything about it needing a specific OD All it said was 1/2-1/2 And that was is. Can I use this to go from the 1/2" 5/8" OD to 1/2 PEX pipe??? So I need a new outdoor faucet/spillcock and a way to attach it to the grey 1/2 CTS x5/8" OD tubing/pining whatever. The reason I was going to try the quick push connect is because for this small section that is cheaper for us today because we cannot rent PEX pipe tools and cannot afford to buy them right now. We plan on redoing all this chaos in the future but not now. We just gotta fix this leaky section. I don't care how we need to do it I just need to know how to transition and add outdoor faucet/spill cock. I just don't know where to begin since my original idea was not correct since I have this really dumb size pipe/ tube. Sorry in advance if my terms are not correct I'm not a plumber That's why I'm hoping y'all can help me. ⚠️⚠️⚠️There is no shut off valve for the water anywhere under this trailer except the main water line. Once I cut this pipe/tube there is absolutely no going back!!!!! I need to know how to fix this. Please note I am not 100% sure that this little grey pipe is polybutylene pipe. By the little information I have that's what I think it is. I have no problem going from this pipe into an adapter that can go directly into a spillcock. I don't care how I need to do it I just need to be able to do it without replacing literally the entire piping throughout that part of the trailer. Sorry if my terms aren't correct, sorry for any typos, this has been a very frustrating two days and I just need to get this fixed because the leak is really bad. submitted by /u/YuuYuuViolet [link] [comments]
