Has anybody seen the new crimped copper fittings? They're solid copper with a raised collar that houses an O-ring.

A plumber friend showed me his new bathroom done entirely with these fittings - pretty slick! There's no soldering at all. The O-ring does the sealing and a crimp holds things together mechanically. Looks like it might be good for those high-vibration applications.

No, not really, but I still loved looking at the site! So basically I have found out, thanks to Leipper, that I have the crimps...and from what I gather, I can expect them to fail? That's not very encouraging.
