Pex expander tool

I am trying to find the PEX expander tool Rich used on a recent show I watched. He was at HD talking about different plumbing pipe options. He used a hand expander tool for some pex flexible pipe, which he then flipped over to pull the collar up over the pipe and fitting. I have tried to find that tool online but have failed so far. Thanks for any help. It was not the crimping tool. It is a pex-manual-expanding tool. Thanks again. wb

This is what you are looking for. I don't know where you can buy it however.

I would try a plumbing supply store. Sometimes you may be able to search plumbing supplies on the internet as well. Like www.plumbingsupplies.com

The rehau tool and method is very expensive. I kinda like the wirsbo/ uponor tool and method myself for its sipmlicity. Their tool is around $360 retail comes eqipped to do 1/2" , 3/4", and 1". I may be low. And, I've seen Rich T. make some sloppy, nasty, sorry looking joints that held just fine. I think he did it on purpose to test the product ;) .The rehau tool has to be WWWAAAAAAAYYY more. It has two functions for pity's sake. and there fittings are brass only. Well water not recommended.
