Verified Purchaseexcellent product, worked ver well
Was a little apprehensive at first, being a compression fitting on our wood boiler system, bit worked great and holds well
Ask a Question
I have some regular 1" pex that has been a little distorted (slightly ovalized) due to difficulty getting it around a radius.... it seems that the pex-al-pex fitting has a lot more mechanical strength than a shark-bite type fitting; can I use a pex-al-pex fitting on regular pex?
There's a difference in ID/OD sizes of 1" PEX and 1" PEX-AL-PEX, so the fitting would simply not work. Push fittings we sell come with stiffeners (made from PPSU), which are designed to fix exactly the problem you're describing. Also, our stiffeners are much more rigid and resistant to higher temperatures then stiffeners made from POM and sold by other companies.
