Does anyone have recommendations for fittings and reaming tools for Kitec Pex-AL-Pex? Just need a few couplers and copper to pex transitions.

    I've used Roth's PAP fittings with no issues. The Kitec was supposed to be made to the same standard, but sometimes it's a hair tighter than the Roth. Reaming it good takes care of that.

    By the way, I've run miles and miles of the Kitec before it was pulled off the market and never had an issue with it.

    I am having trouble finding compression couplers and sweat to compression fittings. Manifold adapters are plentiful.
