Any experience with EP PEX fittings? (Engineered Plastic) I might consider them for aggressive water if I hear positive experiences. I know, I know, I've repaired my share of poly plastic breaks. Thanks for any info.
I haven't used them but I have seen them, They seem to be a higher quality material than what the poly fittings were but after having all the problems that we had with the poly fittings I wouldn't even think about using plastic fittings on pex style pipe again.

I am an Uponor guy also and started using the EP fittings. They have worked great. The Uponor rep in our area said not to worry abhout using them that they have a burst rating around 1200 psi. I always used brass before but they are 1/3 the cost.
