Anyone have any experience or horror stories about this type of PEX. It is being widely used in new construction now here in San Diego, both service main and inside the dwelling. Are there any issues regarding temperature-either hot or cold?

Naturally, service issues are starting to surface now that it is around: ( bonehead landscaper just whacked it in half, planning to install a PVC tee for sprinkler take-off.) Now he is trying to explain to homeowner that they will have no water while he tries to find someone with the tools and fittings to repair. I guess everyone will eventually have to invest in the expansion mandrel tools, but they are pricey for only occasional use.
