Thread: Pex Tubing

  1. #1

    Default Pex Tubing

    I am new to pex plumbing. I know the tubing for radiant heat is different from the domestic water. I have some pex heat tubing left over, can it be used for the domestic. This may sound like a dumb question but I don't know much about pex, and I want to make sure its safe for drinking. Thanks

    I use Wirsbo hePex, and that is *not* allowed for potable (domestic-drinking) water.

    Don't know the story with other brands.

    Thanks,

    This is Zurn Pex hydronic barrier tubing. I guess it would not be suitable for potable water either.

    I don't know for sure, but I would guess it isn't.

    AquaPex (Wirsbo/Uponor) isn't very expensive. Just buy the right stuff and go from there.
