Differences Between PEX Connections

Another PEX post? You know it! In this video Emily from SupplyHouse.com talks about the differences between PEX crimp connections and PEX clamp connections. There are a few pros and cons to each connection. Stainless steel clamp rings resist erosion more easily than crimp rings, and tend to be easier to remove. Crimp rings use different head sizes to install different pipe sizes, which is inconvenient, but crimp tools and rings are also typically easier to find. Ultimately the decision between crimp and clamp comes down to personal preference as both connections are going to be sturdy and reliable.
