Pex pipe tools
Steve M

I have watched many of your videos on Pex pipe installation and am planning on redoing all the plumbing in my home this spring. One video you did on replacing a silcock using Pex pipe showed you using a tool to expand the Pex pipe to insert the fitting in, then using the other side to pull the sleeve up over the Pex pipe once the fitting was inserted. My question is where do you get this tool? I have searched endlessly on the internet without any luck. I know there are at least 3 was to secure Pex, but this appears to be the best way. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Re: Pex pipe tools

I believe the tool your are talking about is known as wirsbo or uponor is guarantee for life product and labour. but is only sold to licensed plumbing contractor that have taken an installation course and exam. Sorry this is a very good product but if they allowed handy men or home owners to install this product the guarantee would not be worth anything.
