PEX Fittings Leaking


We have been in our house for a little over 11 years. Within the last year or so we have had 4 separate plumbing leaks - all at the PEX fittings. Has anyone had this problem?

If you fittings are made by Zurn, they have had issues with fittings made a few years ago. Do a web search and compare the time frame and your fittings.
There should be a name on the fittings you have.

Thanks! As soon as hubby gets home from work he will be fixing our latest leak. I'll be sure to check the name on the fitting!

I don't know details, but there was at least one class-action lawsuit against Zurn for leaking fittings.

It could also be a simple issue of the fittings being put on incorrectly. Once the OP comes back with some more info and maybe some pictures of the fittings we can go from there.
