To ensure the building industry is equipped with the latest, most innovative products, Uponor is the first to offer a pre-insulated PEX tubing product for residential and commercial plumbing applications.

Pre-insulated AquaPEX® offers all the benefits of Uponor AquaPEX (PEX-a) tubing (flexible, durable, corrosion-resistant, 20-year proven history in plumbing, 25-year limited warranty) plus a layer of 1/2" PEX-foam insulation surrounding the tubing to insulate potable-water lines.

Using Pre-insulated AquaPEX can even help a home or building earn LED® or National Green Building Standard points for energy savings.

The most valuable benefit for building professionals is the time and cost savings Pre-insulated AquaPEX offers. Compared to the traditional two-step installation and insulation process, Pre-insulated AquaPEX saves up to 37% on install costs, when combining the product cost savings and labor savings.

Because the tubing is already insulated, Pre-insulated AquaPEX eliminates the need for a separate contractor to come in and insulate the tubing after installation. This helps the installation schedule stay on track and also saves valuable install costs.

For plumbing applications with tight installation requirements, such as re-pipe jobs, Pre-insulated AquaPEX offers a significant advantage. Pre-insulated AquaPEX features the same tight bend radius as Uponor AquaPEX tubing - 6 times the outside diameter of the tubing. And because the insulation is already on the tubing, Pre-insulated AquaPEX eliminates the hassle of trying to insulate in tight, confined spaces.

  • Meets national, state, provincial and local energy-code requirements for insulation of potable-water lines
  • Available in sizes from 1/2" to 2"
  • Appropriate for residential and commercial plumbing applications
  • Saves approximately 37% on install costs over installing the insulation as a secondary step
