  • Viega pex press and pex crimp

    Can any one tell me if you can use the same pipe for either type of fittings
    We are running Radiant pipe and i was wondering if you can use the pipe on the fittings
    and are the pressing tool the same as the crimp tool
    thanks

    Any of the Viega pex pipe including the barrier type for heating can be used with either press or crimp and the fittings are the same. Viega did just come out with new black plastic press fittings which are cheaper than bronze. The tools are different for press and for crimp. The Viega Press system is much superior vs the older crimp style. I was told Viega will be phasing out the crimp style in the future.

        I'm not sure of these pipes. But I usually use PVC pipes in fitting process.
