        Let me share something I recently learned with you. I've worked with PEX a lot, but never for heating applications, always domestic water. In the smaller 3/4" and 1/2" sizes, the fittings are pretty much all the same size, everywhere. But in the 1" size they're commonly available in both "pipe" and "fitting" sizes.

        The descriptions aren't that obvious, and I bought the wrong thing TWICE before I realized what I had done. The title says "1-inch x 1-inch copper fitting adapter". Unless you key in on the word "fitting" you won't realize that the part is actually 1/8" or so undersized and can't be used (without a coupler). If you're converting actual 1" copper PIPE to PEX, this is the adapter you need.

        I used these adapters to connect 3/4" oxygen-barrier pex to 3/4" copper baseboard. They do that job well. Using pex for heating affords you the opportunity to see where the air bubbles are and I noticed air bubbles forming around all my adapters. I have numerous device and points to purge air from the system, and I have been unable to get the air out wherever these connectors are located. I've arrived at the conclusion that the shape of these adapters agitates the water and releases air bubbles, that eventually coalesce into a large bubble. Obviously a problem for any hydronic system, the baseboards perform less and the system becomes noisy. Its not terrible, under most circumstances I can't hear anything, but I'm a perfectionist.

        I do suspect this product was discontinued when this problem was discovered, and it will be replaced with a product with tapered edges.

              Bought 2 packages of 25 pieces, when using them I noticed that there was a difference in the inside diameter. of the 50 pieces we had 7 that was too small to use. Quality control is lacking.

                          First time using pex. I wish the roll was more flexable, fishing in a finished wall was a pain. and you need a mess of hangers so it looks nice and neat on a long er run us the 10 ft straight for those spots. all the fitting worked like they should at a descent price... Thanks

                                      works great, just soldier it to the copper pipe and attached your PEX tubing and crimp it, Done.

Because of soldering issues I no longer use these fittings and instead now use Sharkbite or equivalent connectors for Pex-copper connections.

A suggestion if you're trying to make this connection would be a gatorbite connector. Not sure if they sell at this website, but they do at the box stores. You wouldn't have to solder the copper that way.
