Type B PEX is made using the silane method (water bath).
BHS PEX tubing is connected in 2 different ways.
Crimp fittings are the most effective way of connecting. This is done with a barbed fitting and a copper crimp ring. The ring is compressed with the use of a crimp ring tool.
This method is the cheapest and best way to a connection and is the least susceptible to leaks down the road.
You can also use push-fit fittings. They are great for a quick repair, or a small installation project. They are however more expensive and more susceptible to leaks down the road.
Do Not use PEX tubing for any of the following applications:
Anywhere the temperature could reach 230 F or more.
Not for use with steam.
Keep out of direct sunlight.
Keep away from areas that are exposed to a flame or heat source.
Not to be used with liquids -40 F or below
