Description for Rifeng 050-1000-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.

                    Being a "DIYcauseIcant", PEX "B" is "something" to get used to(being rigid). Taking measurements for cuts, I(right below our knee cap), run the tubing through that crevis and bend as I go, to straighten it up. I then measure 3-5 sizes I need to cut which quickens up the job(but thats just me).

I know it can happen what is the likely hood and how can I prevent it other then extermination? Is there anything I can do in the installation process to discourage gnawing on the pex, some type of chemical coating or insulation?

A call to the local building dept may be in order. If it were me, I would provide some protection where it passes through the joist and is in contact with the romex because the pex may move with the different temperatures and rub.

Used for under floor heating I would guess Pex conducts the heat from the hot water pretty good. Yes if in contact with the thermal mass.> If ran around inside a room along the wall base boards will Pex tubing provide decent convection heating itself? Probably not---even hydronic baseboard radiators have fins to dissipate the heat into the room. The radiators will work with fans if you want to move that much air and the fan noise. Bare Pex run along the baseboard would provide little heat. You might experiment with the aluminum diffusers that clip onto the Pex where you use it for underfloor heating. Again you may not have enough surface area unless you make several loops up the wall. You want a fair amount of mass and water 20 or so degrees hotter than the desired room temp-and once the mass is warm it will transfer heat to the room.> If buried in a hot thermal mass such as dirt or clay will Pex conduct heat well to heat the water inside it from the heat in the mass? Probably, but how hot is the thermal mass? The geothermal heating systems work on small delta T using a heat pump.What about putting a coil of pex into a large tank of hot water, will Pex conduct heat well enough to heat the water inside it? Yes---we used a loop in a Koi pond to keep the fish and water from freezing But again how hot do you want the water? We used a water T stat to turn in on at 45 degrees and off at 50 deg.You can use pex in a driveway for snow removal if you have a hot water source in the winter and reverse it in the summer to heat a pool for example. But to be effective, loop the Pex on 12 inch centers.> I am building a self designed system for heat and trying to avoid any copper tubing and aluminum or steel, other than some recycled auto radiators I will also be using." We experimented with auto radiators in an attic to cool the attic and transfer the heat to a swimming pool.

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.

                                                                        Re freezing---yes if it gets cold enough---your question should be will it fail if frozen (split) and I think it probably will. 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.
