    Tim,

    I have not heard of any problems with the neoprene O-rings used on fittings for Pex-Al-Pex. I know here was a problem with corrosion on Kitec brass fittings that used substandard materials that caused major problems. Can you point me to any information that identifies any problems with the neoprene O-rings?

    I have not heard of any failures of the specific neoprene rings that we are talking about.

    My remark (#3 in my previous posting) was intended to be a more general remark on O-rings. I have replaced many of them on many types of equipment. O-rings in general are a replacement part (potential failure point) in many applications. Sorry if I caused you any concern.

    I was mostly responding to an earlier remark about risking the boiler to an inappropriate fitting. My contention is that it is no riskier than the Kitec fittings.
