    I don't think the colored pexes are different in any way except for the dye.

    I would do all white if your looking to keep it one color. I think they make it in a few colors so it is easy for future repairs. ya know blue cold red hot.

    Blue and red are so the helpers or college students, not plumbers, installing the pipe can keep it straight as to which pipe they are working on. Otherwise it makes no difference which color it is, or no color at all.
