I recently used them to go from copper to cpvc (i hate soldering) and they worked great. No tools to install at all.
I don't know where they are able to be installed (codes and whatnot) but they worked for me.
I use fittings similar to those on machines I work on... I LOVE THEM!!! The fittings I use are for pneumatic lines or hydraulic lines. They definately won't leak, and are SUPER easy to install! Hope this helps.

Pex Piping


I bought a combo tool (kit) from Lowe's. $129.00

It comes with a series of dies that will allow for crimping nearly all sizes and the crusher.

Works quite well, and it is a while lot easier than working with copper in my opinion.
