Not sure if this is a German company? But it's made in China I think. It seems to be very well packaged, with end caps, and a sturdy bag and box as though they took pride in it. Others just use a box, for whatever that's worth. Anyway, we've used a lot of it on Warmboard subfloors and it works very well. No problems, and a good price.

Rifeng Pex is a good fit with Warmboard

By jpspectra

from Lake Tahoe / Gardnerville, NV

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX Tubing (1,000 ft Coil):

My wife and I just installed 1/2" Rifeng Pex-Al-Pex on our 1-1/8" 7 lam ply Warmboard Radiant Flooring. Tubing rolls out easily from a loaned Pex Reel Dolly and fits into grooves nicely. Tubing appears to lay flat with little tendency to lift in the 180 degree bends. Had no difficulty with bury points; tubing stayed put with not much more than being tapped down with a wooden block and a light dead-blow mallet.

  • 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX Tubing (1,000 ft Coil)

    Q:

    Does this tube have the "oxygen barrier"? How Important is this?
    Asked on 6/27/2016 by Andy from MN

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      This is not regular pex. This is Pex-Al-Pex that features an aluminum barrier in between pex layers. The aluminum acts as an oxygen barrier. For radiant heating you would want to use oxygen barrier tubing on an open system.

    Q:

    Will this tubing work with the Ultra-fins?
    Asked on 10/21/2015 by John Snow

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Ultra-Fin plates function most effectively with non-friction PEX (such as Uponor, Viega, Mr. PEX, and Rehau oxygen-barrier tubing), in addition to any kind of PEX-Aluminum-PEX. Rifeng, HeatLink, and Bow PEX have been known to cause noise in Ultra-Fin applications.

    I'm planning to change my carpet floor to a tile floor . Can i use this to bury and heat the tiles floor ? What size do i need and distant between hose line ? Your warranty is only 25 years and i have to bury it under the tiles floor that will last almost lifetime .
    Asked on 1/17/2015 by CESAR from Long Island , NY

    1 answer

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      1/2" and 5/8" are the most popular sizes. The thickness is affected by how
      much concrete is still over the pipes and therefore not compromising the
      structural stability of the floor. 1/2" PEX in 2" gypcrete works
      exceptionally well on a well reinforced wood sub-floor.
      The 25 yr warranty is just that = a warranty plan. There are PEX tubes out
      there with 50 yr warranties too. No one knows how long PEX tube will
      actually last but a well installed loop should easily exceed either of
      those 2 warranties ..

      I'm sure you can, but a more efficient way would be with the use of radiant panels. I installed this pex in panels sitting atop a slab (in Maine) and it works fantastic.

      A:

      Better to use 1/2" or 5/8" spaced no more than 9"-12" apart. Pex should be
      installed closer to the bottom of the slab - 1" standoff or cheap broken
      pavers can be used to raise the supporting mesh. Lastly - and most
      importantly .. remember to always insulate the entire concrete slab from
      below. Better to use rigid foam instead of bubble foil insulation. Use as
      much thickness of foam as your budget allows - at least 1.5". Also good
      idea to insulate where the slab meets the concrete wall ..

      A:

      "If this is for a radiant application - in a wall or under a floor .. my
      recommendation is to replace the loop. You do not want to splice with any
      connector that reduces the flow inside the tube. Outside-only connectors
      like SharkBite are fine but not suitable for in-wall/in-floor applications."

      A:

      You can splice the line by just cutting out a short piece of the 1/2" pipe and add a coupling.  I know this has a fitting in the line.  We usually use water proof tape and tape the fitting and this works well.  I think we use Monster water proof tape.
      When we need to connect to copper, we put a 1/2" female compression copper fitting on the copper line then us a 1/2" male adapter, connect this to the 1/2" female copper compression fitting, then push the pipe into the 1/2" male adapter.

      You would need two PAP-0500M adapters, a TBNL1-08, and a chamfering tool with a for 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX. You could use a copper x female NPT adapter and a PAP-0500M fitting for connections to copper pipe.

    Q:

    what is the application difference between this tubing versus the tubing shown w/ oxygen barrier?
    Asked on 11/21/2013 by Maintenance dept. from Colo.

    5 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The pex-al-pex has a layer of aluminum wrapped around it and then another coat of pex over it so it gives better heat transfer properties and a totally impervious oxygen barrier as NO oxygen can pass through the aluminum.

      Answered on 11/21/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Tubing with oxygen barrier typically has a layer of Aluminum embedded in
      it. This layer makes the tubing impervious to gases as well as liquids.
      Theoretically, this minimizes the intrusion of oxygen into a closed loop
      system. Manufacturers of cast iron boilers typically specify this kind of
      tubing in order to honor their warranties on the life span of the boiler.

      Answered on 11/21/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      In a nut shell, Oxygen barrier tubing is used for radiant heating systems, because the metal leaches out of the boilers and is quite reactive with the water in the system.  The oxygen barriers slows this process.
      The pex/al/pex tubing is much better as it completely eliminates this leaching process.  The TIG welded tube does does not allow any degradation of the water in the system.

      A:

      Same stuff this just uses alu as the oxygen barrier. We use 1" and 1/2" that heat a 30X40 shop heats the house and dose the hot water for the house. when the pool is open it also heats the pool. I do know you have to use the good watts fittings that have the double o ring that go inside the tubing and a compression ring on the outside. I like the fittings if they ever leak i just change the o rings and it's good to go only had 2 fittings leak and it was because the o ring got pinched when it was installed.
