Which would be more durable in the long run, copper or stainless steel clamp.Can you use these clamps on different tubing.EX-Wirsbo has own connecting system,special tools(really expensive for DIY),could you use these other clamps on that tubing.Any Ideas for dependable crimping tools.

Cass ----- those copper rings you speak about
sound so much like the same ones that they
used to use on the old poly lines of the 80s.....

I have seen tons of pld poly lines that seeped at those
old rcopper rings over the years.....

I wonder what will happen in 20 years to the stuff being
used to crimp these pex lines together????
