Thread: Wirsbo and Rehau

    Default Wirsbo and Rehau

    Quick question: A plumber installed some Rehau pex in my house. I am going to finish the job with Wirsbo (Uponor). The Rehau is also an expansion system right? Can I use Wirsbo tees and the expansion tool to tie into the Rehau (e.g. cut the joints off the current Rehau and use Wirsbo expansion tool and joints? I am fairly certain I can...just want reassurance.

    Thanks.

    you might want to just tie into the Rehau with a couple of
    sharkbite tees instead of trying to mix them up

    My understanding is that Rehau is indeed an expansion system much like Wirsbo. Whether or not they are interchangeable I do not know.

    A sharkbite transition is probably a safe bet!
