PEX - Crimp or clamp?


The only time I have worked with PEX I used crimp rings. I'm getting ready to install shower supply pipes and a friend recommended clamp rings. Is the cost of a new tool worth it?

If you already own a crimp tool, use it. If you don't, the advantage of the clamp system is that one tool works for all sizes of tubing. No crimp die changing either. Also, you may be able to rent either type of tool from your hardware or a tool rental store.
