Frequently asked questions about PEX Crimp Tools:
Q: What's a Decrimping Tool?
A: It is a tool used to remove copper crimp rings from connections that were found to be faulty or uneven.
Q: PEX Tool Kits vs. Single Size PEX Tools - which is better?
A: PEX Crimp Tool Kits are generally more popular for many reasons, including the case, manual inside and a variety of PEX jaws which come with them. If the project is a 1-time job and involves only one particular size of PEX, then the single size PEX tool would be more cost effective.
