    A:  We have three fittings that would join the pipe. A PEX-B brass or poly alloy 1/2 in. coupling, or a Tectite push-to-connect 1/2 in. coupling. Those items are: 1/2 in. Brass PEX Barb Coupling - Model #APXC1212, Store SKU #259713, Store SO SKU #1002404976, Internet #301541094 1/2 in.

          Q:how do i connect and old steel pipe to pex? 3/4
          by|Jun 22, 2021
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  The best option would be an male or female adapter depending on the thread of the "old steel pipe". Which PEX piping system you desire to transition to would also be important information. Here is an example of a female adapter for PEX-b (legacy type PEX that requires crimps or clamps to secure): part # APXFA1212. For transition to PEX-a or Expansion PEX, the part # would be EPXFA1212. Enter either of these part numbers into the search bar on homedepot.com and the result should appear. Should you have any additional questions that we could answer, please contact us @ 1.888.229.2874 and we will be glad to assist you. Good luck with your project!

            by|Oct 20, 2020
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  When making a PEX-A connection, you'll first need to slide the PEX-A Expansion Sleeve onto the PEX-A pipe. Then, using your manual or power tool, expand the pipe and sleeve enough so that you can slide your fitting into the pipe. After about 30 seconds, the pipe and sleeve will find its original form and compress back down onto the fitting, making a successful connection. After doing so, it is not uncommon for you to be able to twist the fitting 360°. This will not cause a leak. Do not use super glue on or with PEX.

                Garbage. What do I have to do to make this seal? It stretches & stays that way!
                Everything is the size it should be. But, my 3/4 fittings can pretty well be pushed into the tubing--with these sleeve/rings attached--& without using the expansion tool. I bought the Apollo brand expansion tool that's recommended "for ease of use" on so many videos regarding connectivity longevity. These sleeves do nothing--or extremely little to help the PEX remember it's memory placitity--I've had my fitting duct taped to the tubing for 45 minutes--& I can still pull the fitting out. It's like the manual expansion tool warps the tubing on the first pump. If cold weather conditions effect the elasticity or memory--then notice should be given. I'm certainly not the only person to replace my water supply from the house to the meter, after old pipes were discovered leaking. I'm not the only one who has this happen in fall/winter. Also, Home Depot should have everyone working there knowledgeable & trained in PEX installation --since there are 6+ fitting systems!

                  I actually prefer to use these vs the Upnor brand most plumbing pros use. The collar is a little bigger and catches the pipe every time vs slipping over.
