Great!

Comments about ProPEX Ring with Stop 3/4" (blue print):

These are by far simpler to use than crimp/clamps and easier to remove when necessary too.
The stops facilitate the perfect connection. Note, however: A few times when splicing in a fitting or altering existing pex configuration, I had some failure w/ the stops if the parts became wet from remnant water in the existing line, whereby the ring slid and backed off the joint during expansion. So--just make sure your tube and ring are dry.

Comments about ProPEX Ring with Stop 3/4" (blue print):

Worked well with ThermoPEX O2 Barrier, 3/4" has a stop on the end that the 1/2" and 1" rings I have do not have, may be a new feature (other rings are from 2 years ago). The stop does help prevent the rings from moving up as the PEX is expanded.

  • ProPEX Ring with Stop 1/2" (blue print)

    Q:

    Can you use ProPEX rings on non-ProPEX tubing?
    Asked on 3/28/2014 by TJ from Kalispell, MT

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      ProPEX fittings/rings only work with PEX-A grade tubing (not PEX-B, PEX-C, or PEX-AL-PEX).

      A:

      You should only use the Pex pipe designed for that ring as all Pex pipe is
      not designed to expand.

      You can use these rings only on type" A" pex tubing. Checked the tubing that
      you have and make sure it says type a.---------------------- I don't know if
      you're aware that these rings can only be put on within expansion tool. I
      think it's the strongest connection you can make.

      A:

      My understanding is that the rings simply reinforce the holding properties of the Aquapex tubing.  When using Aquapex, you might even be able to in practice get away without using these rings (though I'd never, ever try that).  There are different grades of tubing, each of which has different properties.  This is meant for use with the highest grade of tubing.  If you were using another brand of the similar grade, these MIGHT work.  But I wouldn't chance it.  The only way I'd even think of trying it is if you contacted Uponor and they said yes, do it.  Even then I'd be hesitant.  If it ended up being the wrong choice, imagine all the labor exposing and replacing all of these, not to mention water damage from any leaks.

      Be careful!
      Some pex tubing should not be expanded.

      It depends what type ring are you talking about plastic ring stainless steel ring? What type of fitting are you using pro pex or regular pex

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Those rings are to be used with aquapex tubing, not the tubing you buy at
      home depot, if the tubing is labeled aquapex, then you should be fine.

      A:

      Hi,
      No; the Pro Pex system will only work with Pex-A. Pex-B does not have enough crosslinks and will not work with the ProPex system.
      So you can either use Pex-A or use the Stainless ring or the brass rings. You can also use those on Pex-A as well.
      Thanks

  • ProPEX Ring with Stop 1/2" (blue print)

    Q:

    What is the difference or purpose between Blue Print / Black Print / or Red Print expansion fittings?
    Asked on 3/13/2012 by Spudgun from Denver

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      There is no functional difference. Uponor is phasing out the colored rings (which can be used to differentiate hot and cold lines) and will only offer black-print rings going forward. Stops are meaningful difference between ProPEX rings of the same size. Rings with stops make it easy to know exactly how far the ring should go on to the tubing.

      A:

      There is absolutely no difference between the red blue or black printed
      expansion rings. The red and blue ones are used to differentiate between
      the hot and cold lines on a white or single color pipe used for everything.

      The red and blue printing can be used to indicated hot and cold supply
      when using pex that is NOT red and blue.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      ProPEX rings work with PEX-A tubing, ProPEX fittings, and an expansion tool (such as the Milwaukee 2432-22 kit).

      Answered on 12/1/2011 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Only one side of these rings will slip over the Uponor or Aquapex pipe. You then need an expander tool that slips into the end of the pipe and you then expand the pipe and ring together. The expander tool has a tapered head so you can gradually expand the pipe/ring combo until fully expanded. Withdraw the expander tool, quickly insert your fitting (elbow, tee, etc.) and hold for a few seconds while the pipe/ring shrink back down over the fitting.

      The stops make it easier to place the ProPEX ring in the proper spot over the PEX tubing prior to making the expansion.
