Customer Questions & Answers

Is pex flexable

how bendable is it ? there are areas where I have to work around posts
Asked by: Jerbo
Your question is over 1 year old and my answer may not help you, however, perhaps someone else might benefit. PEX is somewhat flexible, but you are limited to the radius of the bend. The provide a fitting that helps the Pipe hold it's shape when doing a 90 degree bend say in a corner or other run where you do not wish to use a fitting. Small deviations in a straight line can be accomplished without too much fuss, provided that you do not bend the pipe in such a manner that it crimps the pipe, which can happen if you attempt to bend it too far. I understand that there are different grades, and one is much more flexible than the other.

1/2 in. Stainless Steel PEX Clamp (10-Pack) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.

Very good product, easy to use, provided that you have the proper tool to cinch up the ring. It does require a dedicated tool and they are available from various manufactures as well as cheaper versions made in China. I have only used the Shark Bite version and it worked well, although it does require a little effort to close it. After you get it started, and the handles get closer together, it will be a somewhat easier. Works in a confined space where the standard large PEX clamp tools are hard to manage. Looks good when installed, and provides a nice leak free connection. Only other alternative is to use a push on Shark Bite or similar fitting, which is much more expensive, if re-usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Do It Yourselfers, Clamps Beat Rings and PEX beats copper Having learned to sweat solder as a wee bunny, I was loathe to abandon my skill at cutting and fitting copper when I decided to remodel my house. But local water conditions, which apparently are corrosive to copper (wonder what it is doing to my stomach?) along with the astronomical rise in the price of copper pipe and fittings persuaded me to examine the alternatives. A friend in the plumbing business sang the praises of PEX and I was convinced, but he could give me no guidance on the question of whether to use clinch rings or clamps, saying only that his crews used both and that rings were cheaper. I perseverated for weeks over whether to use clamps or clinch rings. I finally decided on these clamps. Here are my reasons: One tool--- you only need one crimping tool for all sizes of the ring clamps, whereas with the clinch rings, you need a separate tool (although there are $ome combination tool$ on the market) for each size ring. Go-No Go--- when you clamp down on the rings, the tool grabs on to the clamp and you keep hauling on it until it ratchets down to the correct degree of compression. Then the tool lets go and you are done. Ooops--- If you incorrectly join a fitting, you can easily cut away the clamps with your diagonal cutters whereas the clinch rings require a special tool to cut the rings. On the down side, the clamps are a bit more expensive than the clinch rings, but you'd have to install hundreds of fittings before the difference in cost was more than trivial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PEX rings or clamps? All the plumbing I've ever done has been with copper piping and sweated or compression fittings. After moving to upstate New York the vast majority of the plumbing I've encountered is PEX tubing. I love it. It's so much more forgiving and easier to work with than ridged pipe. I chose the clamps over the rings because I'm not a professional plumber and the need of having to invest in a different tool for each ring size was unappealing. These clamps come in different sizes but they all use the same crimping tool. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i use both the copper rings and the stainless steel rings the stainless steel rings are so Much easier to Get rite The first time I have money invested in both type of tools

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PEX rocks! So happy Home Depot is carrying PEX products now. They are very easy to use and fast! No worries about an improper CPVC glued pipe popping off. It's one and done with PEX. We are renovating a large mobile home park and need to replace all the old copper and poly pipe. Just be sure to buy all your fittings in bulk in every size. I am redoing my house as well using the PEX manifold system. PEX just goes in so much faster than PVC or CPVC, with less waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clamp Tight! I used these clamps in both the 1/2" and 3/4" sizes whilst re-fitting the water piping in my 1960s single floor cottage. It is important that you purchase the correct tool to crimp these clamps. All my connections held pressure on my first try and continue to do so some months later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clamp PEX clamp worked as I expected it to. A 10-pack seems to be a decent size for a weekend project.
