PEX fittings are not high tech, nor esthically significant. They just have to work and make a secure, leak proof connection. I have used both brass fittings and plastic and have found no difference in the function. I have chosen to save money and purchase plastic fittings. When installed correctly, they provide the same security as brass fittings. I don’t hesitate to use plastic.

This 5-pack of 1/2 inch plastic PEX barb coupling is very handy for do-it-yourself folks. It's easy to use; not difficult to insert the barbs into existing pipes in order to join them. I was hoping it would double for use in my outdoor irrigation drip system, but the 1/2 inch is a smaller diameter than my drip line. (It may fit some drip hoses, though).

Very economical alternative to high priced brass fittings. I like them because if I loose some I am not out that much money. I have been using them for 2 years so far and have not had any problems.

versatile!
Not only does this work great on plumbing hoses, but it also helped me out of a jam in the garden. These fit my 1/2" feeder hose in my garden irrigation system, too. I was all out of my irrigation couplers, and these saved me a trip to town to buy more! The barbed fitting grabbed the plastic lines and did not leak! I will replace them soon as I get to town and Home Depot for some proper irrigation fittings, but they sure helped me that one day!

Different PEX system
I got these to install PEX water lines on my ranch. I didn't realize that there were more than one type of PEX system and that they are not compatible. I am using the UPONOR/WIRSBO system where the PEX tubing gets expanded and then relaxed over the fitting. These are for the compression band type fittings. These are fine fittings. They appear to be well made and would work for their intended system. It is my fault that I just got the wrong type fittings.

I just finished using one
1/2 in. Plastic PEX Barb Coupling (5-Pack) needed just ONE for this. I chose this pack for a splice in an air hose that is mounted on the wall, it is straight and clamped. This fitting has a higher pressure rating than other plastic couplers, I did not need a steel alloy or brass due to the price (pack of 5 = 1 other style) and the fact that this coupler is not being bent, stepped on, rolled over or dragged around. Coupler has a smooth finish inside and out and a shoulder in the middle to prevent hose from going more or less than ½ way. I used an Ideal worm gear hose clamps and I feel comfortable with this fix and it is not leaking air. I use 140 lb. and compressor has a pressure switch. 5 stars
