Never had any problems. That pipe is used in new construction and crimped, and has been popular for several years. Did you leave water in it and let it freeze? Don't know your location, but that is what it almost sounds like.
Also due to multiple leaks, sounds like freezing to me. One leak, or one bad fitting, maybe, but multiple leaks, sounds like it froze. Sorry for your troubles.
