Kitec Plumbing problem Houston/Rockport

Kitec Plumbing problem!

I have a house plumbed with Kitec piping, this is a stilt house on the coast in Rockport, Texas, built in 2006. I have not had a problem with it until the recent freeze which produced a leak, which luckily was easy to find, it appears it was in a repair to a piece of piping, probably done by a carpenter who damaged the pipe after it was installed and used the wrong fittings to reconnect the pipe (hose clamps and the wrong diameter brass fitting). Bottom line I have been unable to locate fittings for this pipe in the Houston area (or Corpus, Rockport area). I am aware that this pipe is no longer used in construction, class action law suits and that sort of thing.
If anyone has any ideas about these fittings/pipe please let me know as I am not into replumbing this house.
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply, I have contacted Pinnacle and I believe they will have the fitting I need. Its kind of strange as much of that pipe that was used you would think there would be more supliers. thanks again.
