I used this to repipe from 1 side of the house over the kitchen ceiling to the other side. I connected from copper stubs I put in on one side to cpvc piping I put in on the other. This finally fixed the constant slab leaks experienced here in South Florida.Very easy to use and connect with sharkbite fittings. Believe me, after the 4th slab leak and jackhammering the floor and all the other labor involved, up and over is the way for me. Very impressed with it.

The tubing is great, but there are not nearly enough 3/8 fittings. I used 3/8 tubing for all my sink fixtures in order to save hot water and I'm extremely happy with the result. However, if I had known how many headaches would be caused by the lack of fitting options, including finding appropriate crimper tools, I would have chosen to use 1/2 tubing on all my fixtures. It's a sad state of affairs, which the suppliers can fix if they choose to do so.

I usually am not one to write reviews-but this time I will make the exception-
The prices and the service from PexSupply is far above and beyond any expectations. The few questions I had emailed were promptly answered (almost immediately!). My order was shipped the same day I ordered. It arrived on time, was packed very well and was spot on with quantitys ordered.

Comments about 3/8" Red ViegaPEX (100 ft. coil):

Having done the rest of my house with Aquapex, which is a pex-a product, I searched hard to find pex-a in 3/8" with both red and blue colors. I couldn't find any. This is pex-b, and I'm sure there are different properties, but I frankly can't tell the difference. At this size it is pretty flexible in any case. I had no trouble with it. I've never had a crimp connection leak with it or any other pex pipe.

Important Product - Excellent!

Comments about 3/8" Blue ViegaPEX (100 ft. coil):

3/8" PEX tubing is where you'll find one of the greatest benefits of using PEX. Use instead of 1/2" pipe or tubing for faucets and toilets, where the supply at the fixture is typically 3/8" already. Water is saved -- especially hot water -- when you let the water run until the hot/fresh water arrives, because you don't need to empty a whole length of 1/2" tubing to get to the hot/fresh water, and you don't leave a whole length of 1/2" tubing full of hot/fresh water when you're done. The 3/8" tubing also bends more easily than 1/2". Colors of the ViegaPEX are vivid, and it's easier to cut and crimp than larger sizes.

The only con is that there are significantly fewer fittings available for 3/8" PEX. This is unfortunate, since 3/8" tubing offers so many other benefits, from comparative ease of installation to preventing waste.

I recommend this product. Just make sure you have access to the exact fittings you need for your project.

    Asked on 12/19/2013 by Keith from Riverdale, NJ

    5 answers

    • A:

      The person that answered your question with how much heat lights put out not having effects on PEX has it completely wrong! It's the exposure to UV that causes deterioration in PEX, not heat. It would not be possible to use PEX for hot water service, or radiant heating if heat were to cause PEX to deteriorate, and crack. That's why you are specifically warned to keep PEX out of direct exposure to sunlight, and artificial lighting until it is installed. Hope this helps!

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Hi Keith,
      2 Feet is quite a distance between the lights and the pipe to radiate the
      amount of heat.( it is not in physical contact for safety and other
      reasons).
      Unlike incandescent filament light bulbs, most of the electrical energy is
      converted to light energy in Fluorescent lights.
      I would suspect other reasons for the cracks in the you tube example you
      mentioned ( may be the tube was defective to start with or kinks, bends
      etc.).
      Make sure you do the unwinding/stretching of the coils of the pipe very
      carefully to avoid kinks and bends.
      You should be OK.
      For safety reasons, while installation, avoid contacting electrical lines,
      lights etc.
      Good luck.

      You should not normally use PEX tubing without an oxygen barrier in a heating system, unless you plan to have an open-loop system with bronze or stainless steel circulator pumps and a heat source that can handle fresh oxygen.

    Q:

    How deep can this pipe be buried for a main waterline?
    Asked on 8/9/2012 by KJ from Salt Lake City

    3 answers

    • A:

      Below your local frost line, above sewer grade. Person that said "Oxygen Barrier is a MUST", doesn't know what they're talking about. Oxygen Barrier PEX tubing is used in radiant heat systems where the water comes in contact with FERROUS METAL components within the boiler, and so-forth. If it comes in contact with non-ferrous metals, or the radiant lines are closed-loop, then Oxygen Barrier PEX doesn't have to be used. THAT is the ONLY case for O2 Barrier PEX to be used, period. Any other use is a waste of money. Read the specifications on it. White 3/4" or 1' PEX are most commonly used for main water lines from meter to house, though I recommend no less than 1", because PEX has a slightly smaller inside diameter than CPVC, copper, or galvanized steel water lines of comparable diameter, and 1" will plain give maximum flow to your house. Hope this helps!

      Two things to make sure of is that it is deep enough not to freeze, which
      if you check with your water supplier they will tell you the appropriate
      depths. Here in Northwest PA it is 36" and if you go over a driveway or a
      place there is traffic then it need to be 48" to keep from freezing. Then
      the second thing you need to make sure is the the PEX is oxygen barrier if
      it is going in the ground...that is a must.

      There is a plastic sleeve that is used to insulate copper pipe when it is
      underground, also you can use pipe foam insulation. If it is underground,
      nothing is needed.
      As for painting, I don't think you can completely conceal the pipe and I'm

      Yes. Pex pipe has standardized specs. Quality of pipe may vary from supplier to supplier but specs do not. So fittings will work for any pipe that has the same specs. However Pex fittings will not work for other pex standards such as pex-al-pex.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      If the Zurn pipe is the same type, then yes i.e. A, B or C.
      PEX-A tubing is produced using Peroxide (or, “Engel”) method, named after
      the inventor Tomas Engel. During the manufacturing process, free radicals
      are created when HDPE polymer is melted and cross-links between molecules
      occur at temperatures that exceed the decomposition temperature of the
      polymer. Some of the manufacturers who make this type of PEX are: Uponor
      (former Wirsbo), Rehau and Mr. PEX.
      PEX-B is made using a "Silane" or "Moisture Cure" method of cross-linking,
      where links between the molecules of the HDPE form after the extrusion
      process using a catalyst and exposing PEX tubing to water. This type of PEX
      is the most common and is manufactured by a large number of companies, such
      as: Viega, Watts, Bow, Everhot, Zurn and many others.
      PEX-C is manufactured using “Electronic Irradiation” method of
      cross-linking, also known as "Cold" cross-linking. Here, cross-linking of
      the molecules is done after the process of extrusion by exposing the pipe
      to an electron radiation beam. The radiation emitted allows to break the
      existing links between molecules of the polymer and initiate cross-linking
      process. Some of the manufacturers are: Nibco, Roth, Cash-Acme.

      A:

      Not sure of an "official" answer on this or what an engineer would say, but I've used several different manufacturers' fittings on several different brands of tubing with no problems at all. Someone with some data would know better, but it's more or less like copper: interchangeable for regular applications. Any negligible differences in diameter or wall thickness between brands are irrelevant because of the clamps/rings that yank the tubing down on the fittings.
