Can you use the stainless steel crimp rings and ratcheting crimper with the Barb Polybutylene fitting?
Asked by: Darkar
Yes. All SharkBite barb fittings can be installed on our PEX pipe with either the stainless steel clamp rings and clamp tool or our copper crimp rings and crimp tool. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

The two sides as well as the two rings are both different but I cannot find any directions? Is one side and one ring more appropriate for the PB or?

Asked by: jim
The larger diameter side of the barb fitting and shiny copper crimp ring is for the polybutylene pipe. The narrow side of the barb fitting and dark copper crimp ring is for the PEX pipe.

Do the old PB crimp tools work for PEX crimp rings/barbs

Asked by: PRgary
Hi, The rings for polybutylene have a different outside diameter. The crimp rings for both sides of this transition fitting have the same outside diameter. These crimp rings should be installed using a PEX/Barb Crimp Tool. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-and-3-4-in-Dual-PEX-Copper-Crimp-Ring-Tool-23251/202270489

can i use a crimp ring on copper pipe

Asked by: bernie
Hi Bernie, Crimp rings can only be used with PEX pipe and barb fittings. If you need to connect polybutylene to copper, you can use a SharkBite polybutylene transition coupling and simply push the pipe into the fitting (no tools required.) http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Brass-Push-to-Connect-Polybutylene-Conversion-Coupling-U4008LFA/202270632?keyword=u4008lfa

1/2 in. Brass PEX Barb Polybutylene Coupling is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for my old PB pipe repair I had a cracked t-fiting on some older 1/2 BOW super-flex PB, since I couldn't find a replacement T, I used these transitions to put in PEX. I used 3 of these guys to do the transitions to the PEX, so I could use a Shark Bite T. I did the crimps on PB and the PEX using the Shark Bite crimper with no issues. All working great with no leaks so far.
