    which pex crimper??

    POSTED IN PROS BUT i GUESS NO RADIANT FLOOR HEAT TECHS

    Hi guys wondering which crimper you guys use. I see they have the 3/8, 1/2 3/4, 1" muti-tool or use seperate tools. The muti-tool uses the diff heads looks pretty durable and handy or should I pick up one of each. Problem is dont know how often I would use it. thanks Victor

    It depends on the brand of fittings you will use. REHAU has there own expander and sleeve compression tool. Watts uses crimp rings or cinch clamps for thier pex depending on fittings. Uponor also has thier own expander and fittings. Get your boss to buy the tool based on the manufacturer he will use.

    You also need the block crimper, that uses a wrench to crimp the rings because sooner or later you'll get into a tight area, also don't forget to get a "Ring Buster" Always wear your safety glasses, as I've launched a few rings.
