PEX Tubing


I need to terminate some potable 1/2 and 3/4 PEX tubing. Should I use copper or stainless steel rings. I need a to buy the tools, so I was wondering which system is better. Thanks.

PEX Tubing


Long term terminate or short term?
short term why not use the sharkbite caps?

PEX Tubing


IMO copper crimps are superior to the SS clamps. Down side is you need 2 tools for 1/2 and 3/4 vs 1 for the SS.
