Make the Quality Connection with our QUAL-PEX Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ SYSTEM

Thousands of Connections can’t be wrong!


The Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ system is a new unique system designed specifically for the Irish market.  Unlike other crimp systems the Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ system is supplied in Irish sizes of ½”, ¾” & 1” for use with Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Lay’ pipe.  The Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ system requires no expensive tooling, no reaming of the joint prior to fitting; no pipe inserts, and gives an incredibly secure joint.  The system is designed for optimal installation speed, ease of use, joint security, and competitiveness.  Because it is Irish sized the system is ideal for use in retrofit applications or other applications as it is fully compatible with existing Irish size pipe and fittings systems.  For new builds this system is unbeatable for installation speed.

Our extensive range of quality ‘Easy-Crimp’ fittings have complete compatibility with our Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Lay’ pipe. The airforce grade annealed aluminium protective metal sleeve is precisely attached to each fitting during production and is designed to provide a unique metal reinforced leak free joint. The polymer fittings are made from a high performance thermoplastic and can withstand high temperatures as well as being corrosion resistant.

The secure water tight seal is made when the Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Lay’ pipe is compressed onto the body of the Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ fitting. The “air force grade” aluminium holds that seal permanently. This seal eliminates any contact between water and metal which has been the focus or major problems in the past. (brass bodied fittings degrading due to corrosive water) The Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Lay’ pipe and the Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ fittings are completely corrosion resistant.

Pipelife’s guarantee on the Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ System against manufacturing defects is a minimum of 50 years. The guarantee remains valid, provided that the pipe and fittings are installed as per the company’s recommended installation guidelines and that the products installed were not damaged before, during or after installation.

Our Qual-Pex Plus+ ‘Easy-Crimp’ fittings are the professional’s choice due to the right materials used for the job, the rings don’t fall off, no O-rings, pipe inserts or pipe de burring required, no slide just crimp and move on. Once you push our pipe in you can rest for sure knowing it’s docked and locked - then crimp.

Qual-PEX Plus+ Clamp Tools for Crimp Fittings

The patented Pipelife clamp tool is an integral feature of the Qual-Pex Plus+ 'Easy-Crimp' System and ensures a simple, accurate, watertight joint every time.

As the tool clamps onto the aluminium sleeve, it ‘work hardens’ the section within the jaws of the tool, making a watertight joint and leaving a section of the aluminium sleeve on both sides still in the annealed state. This ensures that there is no stress on the pipe or the crimp fitting.


  • Robustness in design and parts, combined with the variety of sizes and styles available, mean many years of service onsite.
  • Extremely easy to maintain – simply clean and lubricate moving parts regularly.
  • Case hardened, precision manufactured components used throughout the tool ensure that a consistent clamping force is applied throughout the life of every Qual-Pex clamp tool.
  • Ensures a reliable, long-lasting, leak-free joint every time as clamping applies sufficient force to “cold form” each clamp ring that is clamped.
  • Positive stop for clamping action ensures that the correct clamping force is applied to the joint every time, without requiring judgment on the part of the operator. This feature guarantees that Qual-Pex Plus+ 'Easy-Crimp' fittings will not be overstressed by the application of too much clamping force when making a joint.
  • Well thought-out design ensures problem-free clamping of joints every time, even in those hard-to-get situations, with reduced incidence of ‘angled clamping’.
  • The Qual-PEX Plus+ Clamp Tool is available in sizes of 1/2”, 3/4” & 1".
  • Pipelife Clamp Tools are supplied with a 12 month guarantee from date of purchase.

What our customers say

Trevor Hill, Hill Heating & Plumbing, Cork

“Very happy with how simple this system is. No inserts needed, huge cost saving on many levels, faster, cheaper than MLCP crimp, much lighter for transportation, will be widely available. No confusion on what profile, what jaws, availability of the fittings. Love the sleek finish. Only tools needed is a cutters and a clamp tool. This is a game changer”

Thomas Donegan, Ballyshane, Rathangan, Co. Kildare

“It took one senior plumber and apprentice 2 and half days to first fix one house with multilayer pipe. With the Qual-Pex Plus+ Easy-Crimp System we first fixed one house in alittle over one day. We are delighted with the speed and ease of the fittings. We will continue to use this system for this site with Qual-Pex Plus+ Easy-Lay Pipe. Also the 1/2" & 3/4" nail on clips fit perfectly around the fittings”.
