PEX and PB fittings


I'm going to add a shut-off valve in my parents house. Their house was plumbed with PB (around 1994). I have PEX pipe and the fittings. Can I go direct from PB to PEX using the PEX fittings?

Not with just the Pex to Pex fittings... Check out what Sioux Chief MFG has to offer when going from PB to PEX.

I suppose the crimp tool is different too.

Honestly I can't tell you...but it wouldn't be that difficult to find out. Go where they have the crimp PB fittings and compare the size to the PEX crimp. From this site, it kind of reads like one tool does it all. Call'em 800-821-3944 I have the composite handle with the 1/2" and 3/4" capabilities...and it works well.
