Arrowshooter: Have you checked you local garbage dump?? Sorry to be flippant about your question, but unless you've been living in some remote part of the world, there has been a HUGE class action suit against poly-B tubing for a number of years now. All plumbing suppliers, that I know of, no longer carry poly-B, the crimp rings or fittings. You're better off going back to copper pipe and fittings or other plastic tubing such as Whirsbo or pex. I use Pex as it uses the same crimping tools that we used for poly-B. There are transition couplings that go from poly-B to Pex if you come across a job that already has poly-B and you need to cut tees into the lines.Marty
