A: Hello, Thank you for your question. We would require more information to determine if our Valve (or other product) is designed for that use. Please contact our Customer Support Team at 877-277-7755 and reference this review.
A: You have a couple of choices. the crimp ring which requires a separate tool for each diameter fitting...i.e. 3/8=1 tool, ½" requires a separate tool, etc. You can also use a good quality cinch ring for each diameter you're using. But you usually only need 1 tool for multiple sizes, thus saving you a bunch of money.
A: Thanks Kimmy for the question. To install PEX connections, you will require a crimp tool that is compatible with PEX tubing and copper crimp rings. Sometimes the tool may reference F1807 which is the crimp designation for a copper crimp ring connections. Its required to have the crimping tool that is sized to the diameter of the tubing. The Home Depot carries several varieties dependent on your size requirements. Hope this helps. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact our customer support team toll-free at 877-272-7755.
A: I used the iwiss pex cinch clamping tool for 3/8 to 1 inch clamps, available at amazon. It is much easier to use then the pex compression tool since it has ratcheting action. Also it is only 12 inches in length so it is easier to use in tight places. The pex compression tool sold at home depot does not work on 3/8 rings and it is very big so you could not get it into a tight place. I also bought the sharkbute 3/8 compression clamps from home depot.
