More About 1/2" Non-Barrier PEX
1/2" PEX is the most popular size tubing used for residential drinking water plumbing applications due its flexibility and good flow rates with low pressure drop. It can be used to run hot and cold water lines to plumbing fixtures such as showers, faucets, dishwashers, lavatories and many others. It is also certified to PEX 5006 for continuous hot water recirculation (up to 140F) and is suitable for use with hot chlorinated water.
1/2" non-barrier PEX is often used in combination with PEX plumbing manifolds, such as the ones manufactured by Sioux Chief and is suitable for “home-run” systems.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I have to use red tubing for hot and blue for cold water lines?
A: Tubing is color coded to help you identify hot and cold water lines. Besides the color, there is no difference between red and blue colored PEX.
Q: I have some leftover PEX fittings purchased from a local home improvement store. Can I use them with this tubing?
A: Nearly all home improvement stores and majority of plumbing supplies usually sell either crimp style PEX fittings (ASTM F1807) or push-fit fittings (such as SharkBite brand). Both are compatible with Everhot plumbing PEX as well as Viega and Sioux Chief. You can look up fitting compatibility here.
Q: We plan on doing a “Home Run” plumbing system. Is 1/2" PEX tubing the right size for this application?
A: Yes, 1/2" PEX tubing is the most popular size used for Home Run systems (such as Viega Manabloc). It delivers adequate flow to the fixture even in larger size homes. 3/4" or 1" size PEX can be installed on the manifolds’ inlets for hot and cold water supply.

Why don't we show the price?
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
