  • Tested and Certified by NSF for use in floor radiant heating applications.
  • NSF Certified to the Uniform Plumbing Code.


1/2" PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier can be used for the following radiant heating applications:

  1. Structural Concrete Slabs (Rebar or wire mesh reinforced, 4-6" thick). Slab-On-Grade Systems (garages, warehouses), Slab-Below-Grade Systems (basements). 1/2" PEX Tubing is secured on top of the reinforcement with wire ties, zip ties or clips.
  2. Non-Structural Concrete Slabs (Non-reinforced, 1.25"-2" thick). Gypsum or other thermal mass systems over subfloor. 1/2" PEX Tubing is secured to the subfloor (i.e. plywood) with plastic clips, pipe clamps or other approved fastening method.
  3. Below-Subfloor (Staple-up) and Above-Subfloor ("Sandwich") Systems with and without aluminum heat transfer plates.
  4. Sleeper-type systems (above subfloor) with and without heat transfer plates.
  5. Engineered Subfloors and Modular Board Systems. 1/2" PEX Tubing is secured by into grooved channels of the plywood or foam board subfloor panels.
  6. Copper tube finned baseboard radiators.


Everhot Oxygen Barrier PEX Tubing can be installed using either Crimp type connection system (Crimp Tool, Crimp-style PEX Fittings and Copper Crimp Rings) or Clamp/Cinch type connection system (Clamp Tool, Crimp-style PEX Fittings and Stainless Steel Clamps). Also compatible with Push-Fit connection system (such as SharkBite), Viega Press type system and Compression type PEX fittings.

This product is a replacement for:

  • Watts (RadiantPEX): PB032081-1000
  • Viega (ViegaPEX): 11436
  • Zurn (ZurnPEX): QHR3PC1000FX
PEX Tubing colors and packaging may vary by manufacturer.

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.

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.

I see a previous question asked if it was rated for 180 degrees. But I’m not sure of the answer. It talked about psi more than temp. Also what pressure can be put on a 300’ run for inspections? Thank you
Helpful? Yes No
Maximum allowed pressure will decrease with temperature increase, thus the several temperature and pressure ratings are posted. At 73F (averaged ambient temperature), the max. pressure is 160 psi; at 180F (baseboards and radiators), max pressure is 100 psi; at 200F, max. pressure is 79 psi. These are not typical operating pressures, which are generally much lower in the scale. The length of the pipe run does not affect max. allowed pressure since it will be distributed evenly inside the pipe. If inspection allows to use pressurized air, then it is recommended to use 3 times the maximum working pressure or a minimum of 40 psi, but no greater than 100 psi.

Can I use ProPex/Wirsbo expansion fittings with this product?
Helpful? Yes No
No. Expansion fittings are compatible with PEX-a type tubing only.

Is the oxygen barrier used EVOH like all the other manufactures?
Helpful? Yes No
Yes, oxygen barrier (EVOH) in Everhot PEX is per DIN 4726, which is the standard for oxygen permeability in the industry.
By PexUniverse Customer Service on 08/16/2016
can this tubing be used for heating and potable water
Helpful? Yes No
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.
By PexUniverse Customer Service on 03/27/2015
Can I use this to replace hydronic radiator piping instead of pex al pex?
Helpful? Yes No
The tubing is rated 180F at 100 psi, so the answer is yes, as long as the water temperature is at or below 180F.
By PexUniverse Customer Service on 06/03/2013
Is this rated for 180 degrees?
Helpful? Yes No
Yes. Pressure ratings are as follows: 79psi at 200F, 100psi at 180F, 160psi at 73F
