  • Propress coupling with PEX fitting adapter?

    Can I crimp a Propress coupling onto a PEX fitting adapter? I have a manual Propress tool that I bought at an auction and would like to use it to convert from copper pipe to PEX. If the PEX fitting adapter has enough length to meet the insertion depth into the coupling, will the crimp work?

    Not sure on that one. You may have better luck with the copper pex adapter than the brass one. If all else failsyou can take the o-rigs out and sweat the adapter into thepropress fitting.

      I have never seen that adapter in copper always brass

        My question is apparently moot. Just found this fitting at Supplyhouse.com. Propress to PEX directly.

          NIBCO makes a press copper to Pex connection.

            I've done it before. Now I just purchase the proper adaptors.
