In-Wall PEX Connections for hydronics?

I am considering modifying a 300' continuous hydronic loop in a ceiling. Is there an approved or preferred connector I should use to splice in a new length of PEX?

The existing is PEX-AL-PEX, and I'd be connecting to plain PEX. Shark Bites have worked well on the existing PEX, holding 100 PSI for weeks.

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest not mixing up pex brands in your system. I'd use what the system is already supplied with.

Check with the mfg. of the product for the final say.
