Description for Uponor (Wirsbo) LF4235050

The ProPEX® Drop Ear Lead-free Brass Elbow is available for use in hot and cold domestic potable water systems. One end connects to FIP (female iron pipe) and the other end of the adapter includes the Uponor ProPEX fitting for connections to AquaPEX® tubing.

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.

                          Very heavy casting, well milled. Super durable. The third screw hole is nice, too, because you can really make it secure against blocking.

                                      Used for a shower head. Like that it has three ears for screws, rather than the usual 2.

                                            Great way to transition from PEX to traditional threaded plumbing. The drop ear design allows for rigid fastening to nearby framing. Nice sharp threads- great quality product with fast shipping!

                                                        I use this fitting mostly for washing machine valves in basements and screw it directly to the concrete wall or to a piece of plywood screwed to the wall.

                                                              They finally have this in one piece. I used to make these out of a 3/4" drop ear elbow and a 3/4" pes to copper! This is perfect for use on the outs to a water heater. It makes a much more solid installation than the pex to water heater unit.

The thing to be aware of, however, is that the piping from the mixing valve to the tub spout will be changing direction from vertical to horizontal at 90 degrees. This creates more back pressure. I did this exact same thing, and now there is a little too much pressure, and when I turn on the tub spout, a little water comes out of the shower head above due to the pressure. Not a lot, but some does. I believe they recommend using one of their radius elbows to bend the PEX gradually before getting to the tub spout to prevent this pressure from occurring.

You could also get the LF4235050 - ProPEXLF Drop Ear Brass Elbow, 1/2" PEX x 1/2" FIP and not worryabout having to transition. Typically shower heads only need ½” tubing,especially since everything is low-flow.
