    Hello all. New here.
    I am using the poly pipe, 1" and 3/4" thru a few acres of bamboo. I have been using the regular stainless crimp clamps with the Lasco fittings. The distributor branch where I bought the last 200 or so has since closed. I requested another 200 "crimp" clamps from the same distributor, another city, and they sent a quote saying oetiker clamps. Are these as reliable as the crimp clamps or should I request he change it and get me the regular crimp clamps. Thanks,

    Jerry

    Oetiker stainless crimp clamps are fine to use. We use them on poly fittings all the time.

    oetiker

    I use both/either, but like the oetiker because they just need one tool without having to change dies between sizes.
