Latest Home Improvement Products May 1, 2017 Sonia


Uponor’s PEX tubing offers a more flexible, efficient, and durable alternative to traditional piping methods. Both Uponor’s plumbing (AquaPEX) and heating (hePEX) tubing hold a PEX-A grade, meaning it is the highest quality PEX on the market. This tubing can be bent and curved to work in difficult spaces and resists corrosion, pitting, and scaling. Also due to its ability to expand and contract without losing structural integrity, it resists freezing damage that can break most other pipes. By implementing a less rigid structure there are fewer connection points, minimizing weak spots and practically eliminating water hammers and other noises from traditional plumbing systems. Uponor’s history in the field proves its reliability and the benefits to a PEX based system prove it as a strong alternative to traditional plumbing and hydronic piping methods.

Plumbing Advantages PEX tubing is lightweight, easy to repair, and doesn’t even require sweating to install, making it the easy and reliable plumbing solution. By using Uponor’s PEX, manifolds, fittings, and other accessories a home can be fitted with a plumbing system entirely made up by Uponor products. This creates a single brand ecosystem for the home, ensuring optimized compatibility between products.

Hydronic Advantages From feeding water to radiators and baseboards to operating as the backbone for radiant heating systems, Uponor’s PEX tubing is the durable and economical option for hydronic heat applications around the world. A unique benefit of Uponor’s hydronic tubing is that all hePEX is dual approved for use with potable water in addition to its main purposes. While hePEX is not a cost effective method for plumbing a home, this dual approval allows for it to be used in a pinch. This is another example of Uponor going above and beyond to make their customers’ lives easier.
