Poly PEX fittings are manufactured from PPSU (PolyPhenylSUlfone) alloy which is a polymer originally produced around 1980’s and which exhibits excellent stability, strength, heat and chemical resistance properties.
These fittings are manufactured to ASTM F2159 standard and have crimp style PEX connections, which are compatible with PEX crimp or clamp connection methods.
PEX Tubing: All types (A, B, C) and brands of PEX tubing.
Connection Systems: Crimp Style (Copper Crimp Rings & Crimp Tool) or Clamp/Cinch Style (Stainless Steel PEX Cinch Clamps and Clamp Tool).

Q: Are these fittings approved for potable water usage?
A: Yes. They are NSF certified for potable water use, meet NSF/ANSI 61 and 372 standards and are lead-free compliant in all 50 states.
Q: What are the pressure/temperature ratings?
A: 200°F max. operating temperature, 200 psi max. operating pressure.
Q: Is there any difference between black and white poly PEX fittings?
A: No. The color of the fitting has no effect on its’ dimensions, durability or performance ratings.
Q: Are they interchangeable with other brand poly fittings?
A: Yes, Everhot poly-alloy PEX fittings are a direct replacement for poly PEX fittings from Watts, Viega, Apollo, Nibco, Matco-Norca, Everflow, A.Y. McDonald and many other brands.
Q: Poly vs. Brass PEX fittings – which are better?
A: Poly fittings cost less and have superior resistance to chemicals, dezincification and oxidation than brass fittings. The downside is that the inner diameter of poly-alloy PEX fittings is smaller then those of the brass and sweat adapters/elbows are not available.
Q: Can I use these for hydronic heating applications?
This product does not meet the new low-lead criteria defined in Safe Drinking Water Act
and cannot be used for potable water applications,
including for drinking and cooking. This product can be used for non-potable water
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.
