The most common residential plumbing materials for water-supply lines are copper pipes. Copper piping is very popular because of it durability and it’s variety of grades. It is used extensively to convey potable water because of it’s corrosion resistance, machinability, and high level of heat transfer.
Cross-linked polyethylene, or PEX, is a bendable plastic piping toughened by a special chemical process that strengthens the polyethylene. Because of its ability to withstand a wide range of temperatures (subfreezing to 180 degrees F), it is quickly gaining popularity as a supply pipe for residential plumbing.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) piping is commonly used for hot and cold water applications. Ideally suited for applications where temperatures can reach up to 200 °F (90 °C). The ability to bend and shape CPVC enables its use in a wide variety of applications. It exhibits fire-retardant properties and chemical resistance.

Compare COPRO Pure® Quick Connect Fittings
There are huge differences between COPRO Pure® quick connect (push to connect) fittings and other brands. Unlike the competition, COPRO Pure® offers high flow and repairable technology. The product “S” fitting is not repairable and is sold with plastic inserts that could potentially restrict flow or create fluid turbulence.
Full Flow Quick Connect Plumbing Fittings
COPRO Pure® quick connection fittings offer full flow fittings with no loose plastic pieces. Impossible to remove with your hands! Because COPRO Pure®’s removal rings are not attached to the fitting and it’s nearly impossible to remove a COPRO Pure® fitting without a tool. We believe that leaves you with a tamper free, long lasting fitting.
Easily Repairable, Re-usable Fittings
COPRO Pure® quick connection fittings are completely repairable. Our simple repairing system allows you to make repairs to a fitting without throwing it away! Why choose a disposable fitting when you can have the worlds only push to connect repairable fitting for about the same price?

COPRO Pure® Lead-Free FAQ
Q: What material are COPRO Pure® Lead-Free fittings made of?
A: The fittings are forged 36,500 Brass, as well a 69,300 Lead-free Brass(ASTM B-283), the gripping ring is
made of a proprietary Stainless Steel, and the o-ring is EPDM pre-lubricated with an NSF-61 approved
Q: Do you make COPRO Pure® in Lead-free Brass?
A: Yes, we manufacture a complete line of AB1953, lead law compliant Brass push fittings.
Q: What is the internal O-ring protector material?
A: Unlike our competitors, COPRO Pure® Lead-Free utilizes an integrated Brass o-ring guide, not plastic as in competitive alternatives.
Q: Do I need to prep the ends differently than a solder joint?
A: No, as with sweat copper fittings, the tube must be chamfered, de-burred and reamed (free from
burrs and debris). Quick Fitting® recommends the use of an Inner/Outer Reamer to chamfer, de-burr and
ream tube ends. These steps are essential to ensure the proper connection of your COPRO Pure® Lead-Free push-to-connect
fitting. Also, be sure to draw an insertion mark on the tube to indicate proper insertion of the
tubing into the fitting.
Q: What types of tubing can be used with COPRO Pure® Lead-Free fittings?
A: COPRO® connectors are ideal for use with Copper, CPVC and PEX.
Q: Should I use a tubing insert stiffener on Copper, PEX and CPVC?
A: A stiffener is only required when connecting COPRO to PEX tubing,
Installing, Testing and Flushing Your COPRO® System
Q: Can a COPRO Pure® Lead-Free fitting blow off a water system?
A: NO, the grip ring technology utilizes an opposing force principle, which simply put, the higher the
