I was just on the site and they’ve got the tubing information, heating and public supplies, HVAC and IAQ equipment. As well, they have every vendor you can think of, plus how to install pex pipe.
Here’s a little more about PEX tubing:
If you’re curious about PEX piping, it is made from HDPE, which is a short for High Density PolyEthylene. HDPE usually comes in pill-size granules, which are melted inside the extruder during the manufacturing process and pushed through a die under pressure, thus creating a pipe (tubing).
PEX is the short terms for Cross-linked (hence, “X”) PolyEthylene (PE) and created during the extrusion process by forming links between molecules. Cross-linking process improves the chemical and temperature performance ratings of the polymer, gives it flexibility and extra strength.
Thanks to its popularity, PEX tubing goes under many other names, such as PEX pipe, PEX tube, PEX piping, etc. They all have the same meaning.
Different Types of PEX tubing:
Oxygen Barrier PEX tubing is designed for use in closed loop heating applications, such as radiant heating (floors, concrete slabs), hydronic heating (baseboards, radiators, fan coils), outdoor wood boilers and others.
Non-Barrier PEX tubing is primarily used for hot and cold water plumbing applications and is available in both red and blue colors. It may also be used in open loop type radiant heating applications.
PEX-AL-PEX tubing can be used both in plumbing and heating applications and has all the advantages of regular PEX plus the memory feature, which allows it to keep it's shape when bent.
