      I have only done one re pipe and it was copper.which i prefer anyway.
      The owner wanted nothing more to do with plastic.done lots of Reno's and what not just a big pain in the ***.Regarding fittings etc.
      When it became illegal .The main plumbing contractors scooped up all the fittings.Most of the guys don't depart with them.
      I know you can still get them online.Cheers.

        I bet Sharkbites would be a great replacement for Kitec fittings...

            Sharkbites will work on Kitec but it has a slightly larger OD than standard PEX. They did not bother testing sharkbites with Kitec as it was already on its way out. As such the connection is not an approved connection.

              Yes, we still make valves and fittings for PEX-AL-PEX and they are available to any wholesaler.

              Kitec was IPEX's brand name but a few companies are still supplying this type of pipe.

                      I was kinda but in a pinch if you had to make a repair and you could not get a fitting i thought a sharkbite could get him by...

                          Kitec is no longer in business.... the name is called IPEX now, they have kitec to regular pex fittings to fix your issue.... look maybe IPEX.com?

                            Don't get me wrong - I'm not recommending anything one way or another, nor am I trying to promote anything.

                            Simply saying that we are a Canadian manufacturer located in Ontario and any wholesaler that has an account with us (anywhere in North America) can order valves or fittings for PEX-AL-PEX from us.
