: we have alumun crimpling with plastic fittings all under trailer, and have had 2 leaks and a big one from the water heater with that. caused big leaks and new water heater and got in my walls and carpet.bought trailer in 1990.

The pipe is ok. You can replace the fittings with copper or brass fittings and brass crimp rings. However, since they do not make PB anymore you may have trouble finding the fittings. The replacement pipe is PEX which has a different inside diameter.LonnythePlumber
