Since Kitech has bellied up, what are you guys using on making repairs for/or tying into the ipex. Here in the Austin area you can only find a few fittings left over. I took the offer from Viega to trade in my Kitech stuff for the Viega tools and fittings. Kitech made a mechanical joint as well as the crimp fittings. I guess what I am asking is, does anyone know where you can get 1/2 thru 1" mech male or female adapters so you can transition. I know Shark bites work on the 1/2 but they don't work on the 3/4. Any help would be appreciated.
