Crimping Tools Standard
One of the most important parts of the pex system in the crimping tools used for the job.There are various crimping tools depending upon the type of crimping system you use.
Pex Expansion Tools
The second commonly used system is the expansion method. This method is used with a proprietary expansion tool and pex tubing which has memory built into the tubing.
Pex Cinching Tools
A third commonly used method is the “cinch” system. It is basically like the standard system above but typically uses stainless steel rings to “cinch” the ring around the pex tubing to get a tight fit.
Pex Cutting Tools
No matter what type of crimping/expansion method you use when plumbing with pex, you will need a cutting tool to cut the pex tubing.
One of the challenges with Pex is that generally it comes in rolls of up to 500 feet. One of the tools of trade if you are going to do this for a living is to purchase a Pex Tube Uncoiler.
