Got a sharkbite  from home depot online......all three sizes of crimps.  And my bosch rp3p came in that I'll be using at the shower, in conjunction with the 6 gal. propane water heater .  I'll let you know how it all works out...........

Typical ratchet type crimper about $75.00 but if you have a plumbing supply house near you they may rent you one or loan you one with a down payment for  the tool. Remember to use stainless steel rings as they don't corrode like the steel ones. I'm giving my secretes away!

I am a builder, everyone uses PEX I would not be afraid to use it either, VERY EASY to use.  Crimp is easier i think, thier are plumbers each with thier own views as to why they use expansion, crimp is easier also.

Hi what does the crimper cost?

I'm a plumber by trade. Pex is great stuff ! There are two types, Expansion and Crimp. Go with crimp and use stainless steel crimp rings as they will not corrode and rust like the steel rings can. Also use blue pex for cold water and red pex for hot. It keeps things less confusing especially if you need to make repairs later on down the road. If you have questions I'm here to help.
