Description for Uponor (Wirsbo) LF2957575

The Uponor ProPEX® Lead-free Water Heater Adapter (stainless steel) connects 3/4" PEX to a water heater.

Uponor's lead-free brass transition fittings, valves and wall boxes carry the NSF us-pw-G marking for lead-free compliance to meet state lead-free legislation, and exceed the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act. Now you can combine lead-free brass fittings with Uponor's PEX tubing, EP offering and ProPEX Out-of-the-Wall Support System for a complete lead-free solution from the inlet to the faucet. The new lead-free offerings feature Uponor's unique ProPEX fitting system for strong, durable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

Waste of money

Comments about ProPEX LF Water Heater Adapter, 3/4" PEX LF Brass x 3/4" FIP x 18":

Don't waste your money.

Get an ordinary FIPxFIP hose (QFC-7518). FIPxMIP ball valve (40533W). MIPxPEX adapter (LF4527575).

Less money and you added in the required shut off valve for the cold inlet.

ProPex shut off valves are expensive so take advantage of already having NPT threads coming off the water heater and put the valve before your adapter to PEX.

        Great for going from pex to heater, but adding a valve to the flex would make it better.

              Satisfies the code requirements for the first 18" of connection from a gas water heater to be copper/ metal from then on its pex all the way

              • ProPEX LF Water Heater Adapter, 3/4" PEX LF Brass x 3/4" FIP x 18"

                Q:

                Would you need this with a gas fired tankless waterheater, the exhaust exits the heater on the top using a PVC pipe and the water inlet and outlet are on the bottem.

                  If the inlet and outlet are at the bottom of the unit and more than 18" away from the flue, you would not need this adapter unless it's a local code requirement.

                Q:

                Why do I need this, do you need this on all water heaters, why can't you just put pex pipe directly to the water heater with a pex pro to pipe thread fidding.

                  A:

                  You would only need to use this adapter with a gas or oil-fired water heater. PEX should be kept at least 18" away from the flue of these units to protect the tubing from the intense heat present there. No adapter is required with electric water heaters. Always check with local plumbing codes, which may have unique requirements.

                Q:

                Is this changeable to use 1" pex instead of 3/4? Trying to avoid buying 3/4 just for water heater.

                  You can do this if you replace the included fitting with part LF4521075.

                  This SKU is only one piece; if you require two for your specific application, you will need to purchase the second one.
