Wanted: Manual tool for Uponor MLC Pex-Al-Pex 1/2" Press fittings.

GRIZGRIZ Member Posts: 23
Looking for a manual tool for Uponor MLC Pex-Al-Pex 1/2" Press fittings. These things are crazy expensive for a manual tool. I'd also entertain a "rental" arrangement. Ship it to me and I'll ship it back when I'm done and pay you well for the hassle.

    Are you using the press tool to connect to the manifold? What I use if using uponor manifold there compression fittings for MLC tubing and other manifold Caleffi compression fittings. I have good success connecting the MLC tubing to the manifold. Example part numbers Uponor 5/8 D4120625 or Caleffi 682545a.

    Thanks Dan, I am planning to use compression fittings at the manifold, but I have some in-the-wall/ceiling fittings to connect and I am not a fan of burying compression fittings in a wall or ceiling.

    In my project I am re-piping my old CI radiators with home runs with MLC.
