Description for Rifeng 050-100-B

Rifeng PEX pipe is produced with crosslinked polyethylene. Crosslinking is obtained through a chemical process that increases the bonds between macromolecules to form a more complex structure than the normal polyethylene. Due to the crosslinking, the polyethylene's performance is greatly enhanced and maintains the excellent properties of thermoplastics. Offering excellent corrosion resistance, incredible flexibility and unusual toughness, Rifeng PEX pipe allows for fast and easy installation.

        The hot and cold color coding is great and simplifies installation. Sharkbite T's and connectors allowed me to tie into existing copper for the last couple feet of every run. This saved me tearing out wall board for stub-out in my ranch house as everything was done from the basement. No Shark Bite fitting ever leaked a drop. Tubing is easy to cut with the cutters. Pipe is not simple to work with fishing around beams and corners but it can be worked into most any position. I also used a 1 inch main supply and that was very awkward to wrestle into place.

        I had to replace 60 year old galvanized pipes in my home and replaced it with pex. There definitely a learning curve using this stuff over the straight legths of tube that can be bought in 10 and 20 foot segments locally. it is important that you try to "unbend" this product prior to placing it in its final resting place or it will pull and make connecting your fittings difficult. The best way to accomplish this was to run the length of the tubing I needed against a studin the opposite direction it was bent. I lost at least 7-8 inches of tube at the ends because it was nearly impossible to get the bend out of the end pieces.
        The pipe itself holds water fantastically and behaves like other pex I have used in the past. The bottom line is.....unless you want to spend significant time unbending this stuff, buy straight lengths. Also if running through joists, drill at least a 1 1/4" hole or it will bind while trying to pull it through.

              Very easy to install... be sure to have a plan on how you are going to unspool it. It will not unspool like romex wire and can become a mess. I mounted it to spool supported between two sawhorses. worked great.

                                      If I had to do it over agaan I would try to find 3/4 inch in 20 ft straight sections, no matter what you do you just can't get the bends out,extremely difficult and time consuming to work with!!!

                                            Very easy to work with. I used the crimp tool and band. The 1/2" tube is easier to straighten out than the 3/4"and stayed straight. Good product.

                                                  Its a little stiff when you take it out of the box. It's fairly easy to straighten out but don't expect it to stay perfectly straight.

                                                        When we had to install piping from our new home to well, my father recommended PEX. Did some research; and realized that even if a bit more expensive than PVC, there are many reasons it is completely worth it! First, when you include cost of joints & glues for PVC - price is only minimally more. Second, ease of use; can fit into tight spaces, is as flexible as a rubber hose plus much more durable. Third, can handle extreme temps (our PVC pipes burst with freeze of 17F). Fourth, as no joints, less glue compounds are used; and for me that means less in my water lines.
                                                        Overall, will DEFINITELY recommend this product & will buy again to install water line for my father's cottage this fall! Thanks dad for recomendation; thank you PEX for easy instalation & worry free use! *^_^*

Pressure tested the system with 70# water pressure and found no leaks. I was amazed and very happy. My wife said the PEX pipe looked good and worked great for our Pearls new water veins. Love this product. Will recommend.

This PEX does not have an oxygen barrier, so no, don't use it. If your system is open and rated for potable water, then you should be fine (depending on the pressure and temp of the water).

I believe that higher temperatures stress PEX by lowering its burst pressure, and perhaps accelerating aging, e.g., cooking the plastic to a point of failure for brittleness. I was concerned about melting. I think the melt point is such that, e.g., if the boiler ran amuck and made steam, the line would burst from pressure before melting. That might be a distinction without a useful difference. If codes are an issue, they might require red coloring for hot water lines, or other colors depending on the purpose of the line. Codes or not, ensure that you have ample pressure relief safety systems. At least, there should be one or more pressure relief valves on the boiler's hot water outlet piping. Steam explosions can be nasty. PEX should be safer in that regard, assuming it burst before copper or steel. But I'd rather suffer a pressure release at a relief

As a result, we would always recommend burying PEX below the frost line if at all possible. Also keep in mind that PEX is not UV-resistant and prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause PEX to become brittle and develop holes. Rifeng PEX only rated for three to four weeks of UV exposure.

Get a couple of feet and two sharkbite end caps and fill it completely with water and freeze it in your freezer as a test. Or turn it off and drain it in the winter or bury it below your frost line. A temperature controlled "dribble valve" may also keep it from freezing solid but waste water.

Because the way the house is set-up, I will be bringing the hot and cold water supply lines to the kitchen from the OUTSIDE of the house from the attic and down along the outside of the exterior wall. I have drilled holes through the brick exterior wall already and will sleeve the 1/2" PEX in 3/4# PVC pipe through the brick. Since the PEX is thinner than the PVC, my question is what caulking or sealant can I use between the two to keep bugs out? I think I read somewhere that petroleum-based sealants should not come into contact with PEX.

Stainless Steel or Copper is best for air lines unless you want to use a proprietary system. This allows all fittings to be brazed (copper) or Tig welded (ss) which makes for excellent system expansion for the future. The proprietary systems are also great for expansion purposes.

Re UV---another problem and I would suggest a coat of paint on the tube where exposed to the sun---good practice for any plastic exposed to the sun. Paint the fittings too for added protection and to hide the lines.
                                                                        I'd run pex to the shower hidden, then use copper for the exposed piping---the natural patena of copper is nice at the beach.
