Can anyone recommend a particular brand of crimp tools and a reliable
internet supplier? I'd like to get some type of combo 1/2", 3/4", I"
toolset to do some indoor pluming (hose bibs, utility sink) and an
Yes, you have to buy the one designed for the system you are going to use.
I rented a combo set for a reno I was doing when pex 1st came in. The 3/4
was on the outside and the 1/2 was on the inside. The 1/2 being a more
popular size was a bi**h to use as for obvious reasons. For the future I
picked up a dedicated 1/2 pair on ebay for a real good price and then rent
the 3/4 pair for when I need them. I would not recommend the combo set.
For irrigation I use poly pipe and one ear crimp rings. A different tool
altogether (and only about $20).
Good points - I guess I'm looking for recommendations on a system that
I can use for indoor plumbing/irrigation. I looked at Zurn, but they
seem to be more for radiant heat applications.
There is a viable alternative to the bolt cutter style. Oetiker
style stainless steel rings only require one tool. I have had
excellent success with mine:
