Because of the properties of PEX, this material has become a contender for use in residential water plumbing. Because of its flexibility, durability, and resistance to wear, Pex is also ideal for use in radiant floor heating systems. It can be turned 90 degrees either by a wide turn or using an adapter; PVC, CPVC and copper all require elbow joints. It also has the capacity to run tubing directly from a distribution point continuously to the desired outlet fixture without cutting or splicing; this reduces the need for potentially weak and costly joints. The cost of material can also be approximately 20% less than alternatives, and installation is much less labor intensive.
PEX Tubing and Pex Fittings have become the most popular way to transport water in Hydronic radiant floor heating systems and have led to the newly found popularity of radiant heat. The advantageous properties of PEX Tubing also make it a candidate for progressive replacement of metal and thermoplastic pipes, especially in long-life applications.
