    Re: Fittings

    Yeah that doens't look like pex, I am 99% sure its PE as well and no that is not an approved joining method. Have him use a brass insert elbow with cinch rings or hose clamps. the Pex ring may not grab the fitting tight enough as the PE and Pex have different outside diameters.

    Unless that is just the sleeve and the real good are inside of it? although i dont see how it can be?

      looks like blue zurn pex to me.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        The pipe is 1 inch PE Endot Endopure
        I believe I am going to stop worring about it. If I keep going I will dry myself crazy figuring out which should have been done! I have also talked to a few plumbers here and they say teh PPSU elbow is used jsut as much as brass. Plumbers just have a preference as to what they used . One is just as good as the other.

        Greenplumb, how woud you have installed it?

          with a flo control fitting, which is an approved method to join PE pipe

          the set up you have has PEX crimp rings and PEX fittings on PE pipe

          The install is a fail.


          From the manufacture
          Our Flo-Lock couplings and adapters make water service line installations easier than ever before and provide a leak-proof joint with less chance of pipe pullout. They allow for a reliable connection for Polyethylene, copper tube, or PVC pipes using our patented design.

            Re: Fittings

            Until I see the writting on the pipe I'm going to say thats Pex pipe all the way.

            You have a bad crimp where the pipe comes through the wall. I would not have left that on my job. He didn't leave enough pipe sticking out of the wall for you to cut it off and re-crimp it. I dont understand the mix of brass and plastic crimp fittings...maybe he is doing an experiment on your house

                    Like I said, it is installed and working so I am not going to worry about it anymore. I am sure others have used the same. I think it would be silly to have removed and replaced.

                      Re: Fittings

                      To me it appears to be Endopure PE coming through the foundation, and then after the 90 he used a PEX coupling to transition the material to PEX. If that's the case, I suspect that's not a legitimate or legal connection/transition anywhere. Have them fix it under warranty.

                      Why not use a good isolation valve at the foundation instead of ProFlo?
                      I use Apollo series 77 valves at meters and water heaters.

                          Ronald, I did a lil editing

                          Like I said, it is installed wrong and working so i am not going to worry about it anymore. I have no idea but I am sure others have used the same. I think it would be silly to have PEX fittings and crimp rings removed and replaced from my brand new PE water line.


                          dont worry its silly.

                            I agree ProFlo valves are shi* ..Everyone I install leaks at the packing nuts..Like a ritual , remove the handle , tighten packing nut, replace handle ...every valve..Whenever I see Proflo on anything I run...

                              You have a bad crimp at the very least...on a plastic fitting. Not good sir. If thats in your basement you might have a houseboat one day. The crimp ring on that PE pipe says pex if its really pe pipe. I have some Rehau pex that has the blue UV coating just like what your saying is Pe.

                                I guess I have a crappy installation that is worthless and going to leak! Might as well just take it all aout and start over.
