    As I understand it, they have a national approval, but local places have the final say...best to call and ask. if you go to the www.cashacme.com site, you can probably get the specs, which may be handy when talking to the inspector.

    Here is a link to the approval papers. http://www.cashacme.com/_images/pdf_...B_ASSE1061.pdf
    When used with PEX there is a plastic insert that has to go inside the PEX.

    QEST gray plastic compression fittings work well too. I don't know about codes.

    Compression fittings are not allowed in concealed locations.
