What is PEX-a tubing and can I use Push-N-Turn with it?
 
Quick question requiring a quick answer:

What is PEX-a tubing (it's semi-clear / translucent / milky-white in colour) ?? Also, can I use the Push-N-Turn (solderless, non-compression) connections with it? The PEX-a seems slightly softer and more flexible than the newer PEX on the market (the grey stuff), so I wasn't sure the non-compression "twist-on" connecitons would work, even though they state they work with PB, PEX, Pulybutelyne, and plastic tubing.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Cheers.
Eric

Yes you can use them on it.

Thanks. We ended up renting a crimping tool and using crimp connections. Best $8 ever spent on a tool rental
