As far as i know this pipe is Pex-B and is to be ONLY used for compression fittings such as rings...

Asked by Josh November 4, 2017
1
Answer

SharkBite PEX pipe is PEX B. You are correct that it is not compatible with the expansion tool and style pipe that contracts onto a barb fitting. However, our pipe can be used with our barb fittings and either the stainless steel clamps/tool or copper crimp rings/tool, or our SharkBite push to connect fittings. Our pipe is flexible and will expand and contract as it is freeze resistant but again not in regards to using it with the expansion tool. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

Is this both flexible and rigid enough to make a 8' circle?

Asked by KEB May 2, 2017
1
Answer

Yes. However you will need a longer piece than the 5' stick to make an 8' circle.

what is the difference between "A" pex pipe and "B" pex pipe?

Asked by DD April 7, 2017
2
Answers

PEX-A is more flexible and uses expansion fittings, PEX-B uses insertion fittings with crimp rings. There is some good info available if you do a search. Most of the product found in Home Depot is PEX-B. It works great with the correct tool and fittings. You can also use sharkbite slip on fittings which are very easy to work with and have some advantages. I would respectfully suggest you do some reading and familiarize yourself with the available products before starting the work.

Great Value, Easy Install
I used SharkBite PEX to replace copper line running to my Water Heater. The red and blue colors make it easy to distinguish Hot and Cold lines after install is complete. Using a SharkBite elbow I easily transitioned from Copper to PEX, the PEX is more flexible than copper and easy to work with, it is also a great value at much lower price point. PEX is easy to cut as well and can be done with a PEX Cutter sold at Home Depot. Great product very easy to work with and use for an average DIYer.
