Forum Title: Is this connected right?
Hi all, new here. I recently had a plumber connect this pex pipe to a water heater....It looks like the line is only on the fitting about 3/8' inch and just wanted to know if this is connected right so it doesnt pop off or anything. Thanks.

Thanks for the replies guys...So you dont think its going to pop off at anytime? I just dont want a massive flood again, thats why this pipe was re routed from the original concrete slab copper line sprung a leak....

Expansion fittings have a tendency to slip ahead of the pipe a bit. That's not perfect, but it's acceptable. I wouldn't worry about it.

From what I can tell its should be fine. Wirsbo fittings have a ridge on them to make a good seal. It only looks like it's barely on because the wirsbo is expanded more in that area making the collar more transparent.
