retailers that sell flair-it fittings?

anyone know of any?

I see that Aubachon hardware and "Ace" list them in their on-line catalogs, but I've never seen them on the shelf anywhere.

Home Depot and Lowes both stock many of these fittings.

And most towns have a plumpers supply near by. You can get the regulators and checkvalves at these.

I haven't seen "flair-it" fittings at either HD or Lowe's. HD's around here don't have any pex at all; Lowe's has some, but its all "qest pex"...don't like the looks of those, they're expensive, bulky, and it says right on the packages "not for use behind walls". which I can only interpret as "not very reliable".

This is easy to mis-construe. Plumbing codes do not permit threaded connectors behind walls. This includes Flair-it fittings as well - or even brass. As it happens, no mid bath coach requires plumbing connectors in sealed areas. Hard to reach, hard to see areas, yes, but not permanently sealed.

In a tight place you may find the Qest plastic fittings easier to install than Flair-it, but I much prefer Flair-it overall.
