Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mickey Product works fine
I installed this pipe in my home and has been working very well for 3 months now.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BenHerr the 1 in pex was easy to cut but took large bending radius.
Over all I was happy with the product.
The 1 in gave us the water presure we were looking for at the end of the garden hose.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nate Too hard to straighten
I installed 3/4 PEX and 1/2 PEX during a renovation and the water pressure was noticeably lower, mostly likely due to 1/2 inch PEX connections compared to 1/2 inch copper (which has a wider internal diameter compared to 1/2 pex, particularly at couplings). At $20 less than any other competitors 1" pipe, and free shipping, I figured I'd give it a try. Shipping was fast.
However the pipe is incredibly inflexible compared to the previous brand I had used (Appollo) and extremely hard to work with in a tight space (my crawl space). The pipe basically refused to be straightened out, even when I tried bending it straight outside of the crawl space.
I ended up giving up 1/2 way and ripping it all out and picking up some Apollo brand 1 inch, which worked great and is much more flexible in tight spaces. It was about $20 more than this brand but well worth the headache.
Perhaps this product would work better if it were a 3 man crew with lots of space, and 2 guys holding it taunt and 1 guy installing a clamp or talon every few feet along the joists. However any future installations I'm going with Apollo.
A big disappointment in this product, as I absolutely love Sharkbite compression couplings. Those saved me plenty of time during this renovation going from the new PEX pipe to existing copper behind the wall, in the areas I didn't need to change any of the existing plumbing.

This pex will not uncoil. It is like trying to wrestle a python. A python that never gets tired and will constantly coil back up. Very frustrating. And tiring. I bought it because it was the cheapest 1" PEX I could find. Big Mistake. Wouldn't be a good buy at 1/2 the price. Spend $30 more for a different brand and it will be money well spent.

Wish it was a little more flexible. Not your problem.
