Zurn Pex install tools & non Zurn fittings


Hi ,
I own a set of the Zurn crimp tools for use with Pex tubing & Zurn fittings—my question is, can these tools be used with non Zurn Pex fittings? Has anyone had any issues related to the Zurn installation tools and non Zurn fittings?
Any insight would be helpful.
Thanks

I just did a heating zone in my basement with the zurn tool, zurn rings, but non-zurn fittings and tubing. Worked fine....

I used Wisbro HePex tubing, not sure the manufacturer of the fittings.

All PEX pipe, fittings and crimp rings are (theoretically) manufactured to the same specs and standards. Jusy like how all copper fittings work with all copper pipe.

I used the cinch-style rings (not crimp rings). I think those have to be zurn to work with my tool.
