Answer: 
You use either the Stainless Cinch clamps or the Copper Crimp Clamps. I have used them both and the Copper are far better.

Answer: 
Hello,
As long as the PEX is not exposed to direct sunlight then you should be fine running it under floor joists. If you have further questions on your particular application please give our customer service team a call at 1-877-700-4242 and we'd be happy to walk though it with you.

We want to replace galvanized plumbing lines under our house. The house is on pier and post foundation, so the piping will be exposed to freezing conditions, do we need to install insulation with the PEX piping or do we need the oxygen barrier kind?

Answer: 
You do not need the oxygen barrier PEX as it is to be used with radiant or hydronic heating applications. If the pipe will be subject to freezing conditions, it would definitely be a good idea to insulate it.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does the plastic taste ever go away? It's been well over a year! Very easy to work with and install (cut, bend as needed and join together using sharkbite fittings). I bought everything at Home Depot in Tacoma, WA and installed in March 2015. Fortunately I only did one bathroom which was being remodeled and planned to do the rest of the house later. From the gitgo there has been a plastic taste when the faucets aren't used for a couple of hours. I cannot believe this stuff is still being sold. I will have my water tested and will go from there. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Peasy Really nice product. My only complaint is that I wish it was a little more flexible for installation. This is very stiff and comes in a roll. It's difficult to get it to straighten for those long runs. Job went well with no leaks and, for a DIY project, is perfect! August 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Water tastes like plastic I did all the plumbing in my house with this. My complaint is that the water tastes bad from the faucets that have the longest length pipe going to them. You can definitely taste the plastic. The upstairs bathroom water is undrinkable, and you can even smell plastic in the shower when you turn it on. You have to leave the water running a while until you get decent water. It wasn't too difficult to install, but is more stiff than I expected and tries to go back into the coil shape. For the entire house, there was two leaks that I had to redo. I used the "better" stainless crimps and the tool from HD. Not a big deal, but it scares me because I drywalls over a lot of pipe before pressurizing the system. April 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colour Coded After some experience with the Shark Bite brand of adaptive plumbing connectors, I decided to go to the PEX style of piping when I re-fitted the piping in my single floor 1960s cottage. I used 2 Shark Bite copper manifolds to set up my pipe runs; I was pleased to have cold and hot runs set up so cleanly. You use more pipe doing it that way, but have less connections. Although I still have the kitchen left to do, that will have to wait for the kitchen remodel which is still in the planning stages! June 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PEX Pipe Light and easy to handle. Easy to install. Buy the good crimping tool to make the job a breeze. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharkbite PEX This is my first time using PEX. Cutting it is easier than I expected. There's no ratcheting cutter needed for this stuff, Buy a decent single-action tubing cutter and you'll be happy. When I cut the tubing originally I don't believe it was cutting square because of the curve of the pipe. The best way to cut it is to lay the tubing in sideways to the curve (if that make sense). Uncoiling the tubing is a little bit of a challenge. Make sure you leave the wrapping on and uncoil from the center. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value PEX is wonderful to work with. This Sharkbite brand pipe is flexible, good quality, and a great value for the money. I was able to install a new water line under my house at a fraction of a cost of hiring a plumber to do it. Even after the install, I still have A LOT of pipe left for future work/repairs. Just make sure to do your research and have the correct tools in place first before you work with PEX pipe. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Great product. Just wish Home Depot would sell longer pieces, example: 20-25 ft length. The rolled product is difficult to unwind and put in place sometimes. December 17, 2013
