why not think about our pex pipe and pex fittings. I think they are best too. I am the member of Cixi Runzhou Pipe Industry Co.,Ltd. We manufacture the pex-b pipe and pex fititngs. Pex-b pipe which we produce can be anti-ultraviolet. It can protect water perfect.
Just to clear up confusion... pex is pex.... Usually people differentiate by the manufacturer. The pipe we use is aquapex also, but it's made by wirsbo. There are countless different brands with their own tools and styles of crimp rings.We run more aqua-pex down here... Havent had much experince with just the pex. Pex is the crimp on right?
I tried one time when our battery was dead, and the 1" head that came with my expanding tool was bad. Couldn't even get one pump with it, it just slid out. Tried with two people just for kicks and it wouldn't even grab. Tried another head back at the shop and it worked like a champ. Since then I haven't had the urge to try it again.If I start going strong with pex, start doing re-pipes here, I will graduate to the Battery power unit. We'll see next year when it's widely approved.
I would never do 1" with the hand tool, no way.
