    i have never been involved with a service line shut off tool.

    are crimp tools okay?

    are freezers okay?

    what is better? are there problems with either?

    I answered this once before. A crimp tool works good on PE. On copper, you have a choke point, because it can't reround the tube back to it's original ID. So you lose some flow.
