    1. Rationale

    The purpose of this project is to add reference to CTS PEX tubing in appropriate locations within the document. The rationale is that these fittings are also appropriate for use with CTS PEX tubing, and several combinations of F1055 fittings with CTS PEX tubing have been third-party tested to meet and exceed all technical requirements.
