Also, can you use crimp fittings on PEX A?
Crimp fittings require copper or stainless steel crimp rings and a PEX crimp or clamp tool. Crimp fittings are compatible with all types of PEX tubing, except for PEX-AL-PEX. Crimp fittings are preferred for many applications since they are widely available and are the most affordable.
To remove a ProPEX ring, heat one side of it with a heat gun and cut through this portion with a utility knife. Be careful not to cut the tubing, as doing so could damage the fitting. Then work the ring off with pliers, being careful not to burn yourself on the hot part of the ring.
