|In response to Re: Accidentally cut 1/2" Polybutylene|
I have lived in three different houses with PB pipe, had pin hole leaks in two and cracked fittings in one. The Quest compression fittings worked every time. I also used them to add on to the PEX pipe in the last house I lived in. They are every bit as good as the PB pipe you have.
: Also HJ...do u find that the Qest 1/2" coupling that I would use work well?? Just so I know we are talking about the same thing....this is what I am thinking of using??
: Part number QAC33 Plastic Coupling - 1/2
: : I use the Qest fittings when necessary. How old is the house because if it is within the guidelines I would be thinking about getting the PB replaced before your time runs out and then it fails.
: : : Hi,
: : : I have been doing some research and it seems like the "Qest" or "Flair-It" compression fittings would be very easy and cost effective to get the job done.
: : : P.S. Should I go with the Qest or Flair-It fitting??
