Comments about 3/4" Tubing Insulator:

A great aid when passing pex through metal studs. Will isolate the pex from the sharp edges and hold it in place.

  • 3/8-1" Tubing Insulator

    Q:

    I have pre-installed 3/4" PEX piping installed in joists with 1 1/2" drilled holes. Will these work or is my pre-existing hole too big since the installation instructions state a 1 3/8" hole?

      A:

      they will work but they will be loose you might be better off buying the
      3/4 suspension clamps that you screw in they would work better because you
      already have the bigger holes drilled and they would hold the pex better
      and be tighter the insulators might fall out of the holes because they are
      drilled the wrong size

      A:

      In me experience if you would like the insulator to stay in place, the 1-3/8" hole is needed. You can however, use heat capable silicone to hold the insulator in place.

    Q:

    Can this product go over existing applied pex or does it have to be slid down the product to fit? My pex is already ran and I need a product to snap over it and fit in the holes already cut. Any suggestions?

      A:

      All of the pipe insulators that pex supply sell are made to snap around the pipe and installed in a predrilled 1 3/8 hole. The insulator you choose needs to be pre installed then the pipe run through it. I suppose they could be cut and then fitted over the pipe. This presuppose that you did drill your holes 1 3/8. If the hole you drilled are not 1 3/8 then spray foam is your next best choice. Good luck

      A:

      Supporting the PEX is not a necessity in this application, but it certainly can be done. If you choose to do so, a clip every four feet or so should be sufficient.

    Q:

    In order to attach a 3/4" pex tubing to a 3/4 " steel pipe, what type of connector would I need to use, it will be underground and outside in the North east.

      A:

      You would need to use a threaded x PEX fitting (assuming the steel pipe has threads). The fitting can be either crimp/clamp or ProPEX on the PEX side. A SharkBite fitting with threads on one side would be another option.

    Q:

    The 1 3/8" is also used for metal studs? I'm using 1/2" pex. Is this also a snap in for metal studs? Thank, John

  • 1/2" Tubing Insulator

    Q:

    Can PEX be run through holes bored in floor joists without the use of insulators? What hole sizes are recommended for 1/2 and 3/4 pex?
    Asked on 11/1/2010 by Al from Seattle

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, you can run the PEX tubing through those holes without insulation. For 1/2" PEX we would recommend drilling 1" and for 3/4" drilling 1-1/4".
