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