  • Which Zurn PEX crimp ring to use?

    The salesman (I use the term loosely) at my local home center said that the smooth copper crimp rings,


    are junk and that the QuikCrimp rings


    are much better.

    I have never used either, any comments or suggestions?

      Ok good to know, but if I was going to use one or the other which would you recommend. Let's pretend that there is nothing else available to me.

            Thanks All Clear, that is what I was planning on using because that is the only crimp tool that The Depot rents.

            Thanks for nothing NHMaster.

                Yet another home owner that's only happy when he hears what he wants to... Imagine that.

                  I use copper crimp rings for zurn. Never had a single problem. I don't agree with NHmaster at all.

                    Just what I heard but... I heard there is litigation pending with the Zurn PEX system. Might want to steer clear of it.

                      I'm not trying to be a ***tard here. All you guy's using crimp pex really really need to spend some time on the net and research the products. I could go on for a page or two here but it's all out there if you just look, and I don't feel like re-inventing the wheel tonight. Never let your local supply house or some product salesman talk you into something before you thouroughly check it out.

                          Like I said, I have never once had a single problem with it.
                          Of course if I start getting calls about leaks in pex I installed, I'll rethink it. Been installing it for years without any issues so far.

                              A day too late. Well I got my PEX system installed this weekend and all seems fine. Copper crimp rings worked fine, didn't have any leaks as of yesterday and the entire system is up and running. You do need to take your time with the rings to ensure that you are getting a proper crimp and that you are holding the crimp tool perpendicular to your pipe. I will let you know if I get any leaks in the future.

                              As for the class action lawsuit, luckily all of my brass fittings are in the laundry room of my basement where there are no finished ceilings or walls. I left all of the existing copper in the walls on the first floor and just cut them off after they stubbed through the subfloor in the basement. If any of my brass fittings fail I can easily replace them without much/any damage to finished walls or ceilings. Does anyone know if there was a ruling made on the lawsuit?
