The idea of crimps are flawed and leakage around the two crimp bumps are likely. In order to pull a crimp tight, you need to bunch up material at the crimper's closure point. This means there is a noncontact area around the two raised bumps. Joint failures show this clearly, there are no embossed ridges at the bump areas and water stains show leakage at the ...

No. It will not affect it. think of it like this, your softener's distributor tube is naturally 3/4" pvc or also known as 1.05" OD.

Probably just need to seal the threads. We always use pipe thread sealant instead of teflon. Its cheap, easy to apply, and almost impossible to goof up if you actually coat the threads all the way around. Just keep it out of the inside of the pipe and only get it on the outside.
