    I believe all of the major brands are compatible, as long as you use the right ring with the right fitting. and don't expand a pipe thats meant to be crimped. Most of the guys I work with use Wirsbo piping, and whatever fittings they happen to get delivered.

        There are three grades of pex A,B,C. Type A-pex is the type that can be expanded and is compatible with all pex-A systems (crimp, expand). Keep in mind though some manufactures will not warrenty other systems used with there pipe (or atleast it used to be this way).

              I believe that wirsbo allows there pipe to be crimped now though (in BC Canada anyways).

                  Wirsbo had their own crimp system but discontinued it due to ring failure.

                  I crimp it above ground to attach to Polybutelene.

                    I have been told that they will warranty the connection.
