      Answer This Question

      A:  No, this fitting is designed and certified for use with the ExpansionPEX, or PEX-A, system only. Please let us know at (888) 229-2874 if you have any additional questions that we may be able to help answer.

        A:  It could be with a clap put on it but it is not made for the flexible vinyl tubing, but not recommended. Home Depot does carry the adapters for the vinyl tubing.

              The Apollo pex a expansion coupling worked really well. It's strong, surprisingly stiff for being plastic, and no leaks on any of the couplers I have used.
