I was recently posed with a problem and didn't get a very good answer at supply house. Need Help!!! Customer wants to replace thier dishwasher which we install alot of for customers. Get to home which is only about a year old and the plumber that did installation used 3/8" pex to dishwasher from a maniblock. I do not have a 3/8" crimp tool and the supply houses around here don't stock them. I need to adapt from the pex to compression for the stainless connector. Counter guys gives me 1/2" OD compression x 3/8" OD compression union with an insert. I installed it and it seemed to work okay, but took some encouragement to get compression ring over tube with insert in pex. Is that a appropriat form of joining the two, or should i be woried and take it out and order the crimp tool. I advised HO to contact the original installer but they refused the service work as all they do is new installation (DR Horton Home)!! Or is there a better way??
