They used plastic fittings and aluminum crimp rings on flexible plastic water piping. The most popular piping resulted in a class action settlement on polybutelene that failed in high amounts of chlorine that is added to some drinking water.

My area has low chlorine so we did not experience piping failures but we do replace the fittings with brass and the crimp rings with copper.
