I looked at a few different systems, and ended up using PEX.. the crimp tool was $50, but you save money after that because the fittings are cheaper.
Where did you find your PEX tubing?
Thanks, Derek

I see that Home Depot has now begun to use the term "Sharkbite" with both the push on fittings as well as the crimp ones. The PEX pipe they carry now is also called "Sharkbite" so we will need to start to call the push on type fittings something like "push on" as both kinds are now labeled "Sharkbite". You can see that in the photo posted a few posts back.

Just when you thought you had it all straight, eh? And I think Lowe's push on's are called something like "Tigerbite" to add to the confusion.
