I retrofitted my entire house with Pex and Sharkbite. I did have to use a few fittings that required a crimping tool.

Copper in my house began experiencing pinhole leaks and after several leaks, I just redid the entire pipe run with Pex.

Happy with it so far after three years.

Be careful about using the Sharkbite fittings when there is a permit pulled. A friend found out the hard way they are not approved by all cities in our neck of the woods. He did some plumbing work and had the inspector over because he had pulled a permit. The Pex was OK, but he had to replace the fittings and use the copper fittings I believe. I have re-plumbed 4 houses with copper, and am looking forward to using Pex next time around. Looks to be cheaper and quicker.

Haven't used it. Replaced all the original galvanized in my home with copper since that is code here.
