With ProBite ® Quick Fitting Plumbing Products, there is no longer any need for powered crimp tools to make a tight leak free piping connection. Our ProBite ® plumbing fittings involve one push to connect copper and PEX tubing. With our Push-to-Connect technology it makes connecting pipe much easier than having to crimp each fitting and leaves no damage to the pipe.
Crimped or pressed plumbing connections are permanently created with special copper fittings attached to copper tubing with a powered crimping tool. Thousands of pounds-force per square inch of pressure is needed to deform the fitting to make a water tight seal. The special fittings are manufactured with a sealant inside, which slides over the tubing and compressed against the inner copper tubing with a crimp tool.
Our Push-to-Connect Plumbing Fittings do not require experience with crimping nor do you need fitting crimp tools to connect pipe. For this reason, along with many others, it’s no wonder why so many people are switching to ProBite ® Push Connect Fittings.
