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".
Very professional and item arrived as planed.
The PEX radiant tuning arrived like they said. The price was less expensive then others out there and the warranty is the same as the most expensive out there. Ram all the PEX and will definitely order again from them.
Great product, great price!
I checked the local stores & PEX Universe had it for half the price they offered & available in more lengths. The product is as easy as it can be to work with for something that's spent it's life coiled up in a box. The length markings printed on the outside are nice to have & the tubing can be written on with a permanent marker for identification.
Good product , better price
Tubing was easy to form the loops during installation in a 30' x 40" on grade slab.
Can't give five stars because it is the only name brand of pex that I have used. 3/4 and half inch both marked every 10 ft, I believe. I put appox 1400 feet in wood using aluminum plates. I also did 1400 feet in concrete by stapling it to 28 lb foam insulation using the staple gun that I bought from here. Love it.
I love Everhot pex tubing
1/2 inch was easy to work with. I have used both 3/4 and 1/2 inch. My wife just loves the warm bathroom floors on these colder mornings.
Good heating tube,
Easily workable. Bends in short radius. Quite sturdy. My only complaint is that it is quite stiff below 60F. (It was 55F when we did the install and we kinked it a couple of times) But just bring a heat gun and everything is fine.
a good way to buy pex tubing
for radiant heat in the floor. So far it seems good but the real test will be later after I have the system installed in entirety
"I bought 9 rolls for a basement slab. It seems to be okay. I installed everything and it tested to 100 PSI overnight. The price is great, I sure hope it lasts my lifetime. The description didn't say, but mine had length markings. I was using a full coil per loop, so I didn't check all rolls."
I would buy this product again.
In floor thin slab. Product went down pretty well. Bends of 7" to 8" radius OK. No leaks.
