I’ve had one call(in 20 years- in Toronto) for a leak in a 1/4” poly tube (ice/water line for a fridge), that a mouse Had chewed threw.
I replaced it with 1/4” copper tubing. And for that, I now only Use 1/4” copper For ice/fridge hook ups.
I’ve never had or heard of mice chewing threw pex, but it’s always a possibility.

I made a post about it, a mouse chewed through it to enlarge the cabinet hole to be able to have a portal from the basement to the kitchen.
