Frequently asked questions about this product:
Q: Can i use 1" plumbing PEX for my outdoor wood furnace?
A: Typically, 1" oxygen barrier PEX is used for outdoor wood furnace installation. However, if your heating system is non-pressurized and/or the parts in your system are all non-cast iron (stainless steel heat exchanger, bronze/st. steel circulator pump, brass valves, etc.), you can use non-barrier PEX.
Q: Can i bury this PEX pipe?
A: As with all other types and brands of PEX tubing, whether used for plumbing or heating, Everhot brand pipe can be buried in a trench if it's properly prepared and tubing is insulated. On both occasions, PEX tubing must be buried below the ground freezing level.
Q: Can i splice PEX tubing in a trench?
A: Although not recommended, you can still splice the tubing as long as the connection remains accessible. See installation manual for splicing instructions.
Q: I have a small coil of Everhot's 1" PEX plumbing tubing leftover from a previous plumbing project. How do i know exactly how many feet are left without measuring the pipe?
A: PEX tubing is marked every 5ft with specs, ratings and length. If you locate the numbers at both ends of the pipe and subtract the lower from the higher, you will have an approximate length of tubing.
