More About 1" Non-Barrier PEX
1" non-barrier PEX is generally used for hot and cold water distribution in residential and commercial plumbing applications. It delivers high flow rates with low pressure drop and is suitable for medium to large scale installations.
1" PEX is also often used for non-pressurized (open-loop) outdoor wood boiler/furnace installations, given the pipe is properly insulated and buried in the trench below the freezing point.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I use 1" non-barrier PEX for my outdoor wood furnace installation?
A: Typically, 1" oxygen barrier PEX is used when installing an outdoor wood boiler or furnace. However, if your heating system is non-pressurized and/or the parts in your system are all non-ferrous (non-cast iron, such as stainless steel heat exchanger, bronze or steel circulator pump, brass valves, etc.), you can use non-barrier PEX.
Q: Can this pipe be buried in a trench?
A: Yes, the pipe is suited for below-ground installation in a properly prepared trench with adequate insulation and other means of protection against damage.
Q: Can I splice PEX tubing in a trench?
A: Although not generally recommended, you can still splice the tubing as long as the connection remains accessible. See installation manual for splicing instructions.

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.
