1/2" PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier is the most popular size for all radiant floor heating applications due to it's flexibility, light weight and ability to deliver large amounts of heat. According to RPA Standard Guidelines, recommended circuit length for 1/2" PEX tubing is 250-350ft, depending on the application and type of installation.
For snow melt applications, use larger PEX tubing sizes, such as 5/8" and 3/4".
Exactly what I needed it to be
This tubing was great. It has printed on it 5 foot increments counting down from 1000 feet, this made our job incredibly easy to keep track of how long our circuits were. I highly encourage installing this product with two people and an "un-winder" (you can buy one or make your own - again this is a must to have! especially for 1000 feet). Pull the tubing of the un-winder and have the first person lay out the tubing for the second person that would fasten the tubing into place. Make sure when you pull the tubing off that is does not twist. Also when you receive the tubing double check the labeling that is says "oxygen barrier" not only on the box but the tubing as well. I did receive non oxygen barrier at first - Pex Universe was very accommodating and took it back and send me my correct order. Before, during and after the over-pour I had my tubing pressure tested at 60 lbs. It worked perfectly.

EASY TO USE AS CLOSE TO REHAU AS YOU CAN GET
Tubing was what I expected and much cheaper than local supplier. Shipping time was crucial so Fed ex tracking site link they sent was very helpful.
Just as expected.
Everhot makes a quality product that meets my expectations as a professional installer of hydronic systems. I highly recommend the product and purchasing it from Pex Universe. Together, they can't be beat.
Very reliable product
Very reliable product for a good price. Recommend.
instalation in warm temps
I found if installed in min. 60deg temp the product is very flexable for 8inch radius in floor joist. 11000ft install jet heater made a differance
can this tubing be used for heating and potable water

The tubing is approved for non-potable, heating applications only such as radiant and hydronic heating.
Since potable water plumbing systems are open type, they do not require an oxygen barrier tubing, and a less expensive, non-barrier PEX should be used instead.

Can I use this to replace hydronic radiator piping instead of pex al pex?
Read 1 answer
The tubing is rated 180F at 100 psi, so the answer is yes, as long as the water temperature is at or below 180F.
