Information

SharkBite PEX tubing is a cross-linked polyethylene tubing for a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing applications. This pipe is manufactured with an oxygen barrier for radiant floor and hydronic heating applications (only available in orange). The oxygen diffusion barrier applied to the exterior limits oxygen permeation through the tubing wall in hydronic heating applications which prevents corrosion of ferrous metal parts in the heating system. A repeating SharkBite imprint pattern provides a visual aid to determine if the tube has been inserted all the way into the SharkBite Push-to-Connect Fitting. This feature only works if the tubing is cut between the SharkBite imprint pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed at a great price I needed this to repair a radiator hookup in an older home. I had a hard time finding the 3/4" pex with oxygen barrier in any plumbing/heating supply store and ultimately tried Home Depot on line. I had it delivered to my home in about 4 days. Next time I'll try Home Depot first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product / easy to use. Used this product to make connections in existing hydronic heating system for additional baseboard heat. Used the clamp connections and some shark bite connections. You need the clamping tools for this. Can cut with a regular twist and spin pipe cutter but don't dig in too hard. Keep it warm as the colder it gets the hard it is to manipulate. Doesn't make 90 degree turns tightly, you need a good 12" -16" to make a 90. Just buy the 90 degree fittings if you don't have the space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, easy to install Pex is a great product. Be aware that the pex clamps and tools are proprietary. Home depot has Apollo clamps and tools, which work very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent but beware Thie is some high quality PEX for heating application - but it is VERY STIFF - I had to use a blow dryer to get it to flex especially at 90 degree bends. Used with shark bite fitting to reroute a pipe the was running through my garage. So far working well. If you need PEX that's easy to bend try PEX-AL_PEX but I'm not sure where to get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PEX Radiant tube The 3/4" PEX is tough to make sharp bends; i.e. small radius, but managed to create a nice radiant tile floor from below underfloor, between joists.

Is this oxygen-barrier PEX pipe compatible with the SharkBite 4-Port Closed Copper PEX Manifold (as seen at Item Model # 22785 on Amazon)?  The manifold uses crimp fittings to connect the PEX pipe to the manifold.

Asked by: Patty S
Hello, Our oxygen-barrier PEX tubing is compatible with manifold # 22785. Thank you

should we buy non oxygen barrier or oxygen barrier for under concrete in floor heat I our shop?

Asked by: janis h
Hello, Oxygen barrier PEX tubing is typically used in radiant/hydronic heating applications. This type of PEX prevents oxygen from entering the water and prevents rust in systems with iron parts. Thank you

hi im using the orange pex pipe for my baseboard heating and i have to go thru a block wall is the pipe fray resistance just in case it moves when the heat cycles while rubbing on the block will it put a hole in it if it does what can i do to protect it

Asked by: julio
Good morning, If you expect the pipe can become frayed, you should use a non-metallic sleeve to protect the pipe you are using for your system. The sleeve can be a larger diameter pipe that the in use pipe can slide into.

DO you recommend shark bite (push connect) or PEX barb and crimp ring?. When using oxygen barrier pex.

Asked by: C noboa
Hello, SharkBite push-to-connect fittings and the barb/crimp ring fittings will work great with our oxygen barrier PEX tubing. The benefit of the push-to-connect fittings is the speed and ease of use. Thank you

Can shark bite fittings be used for the piping going to base board Heating for a boiler? I understand I can use the oxygen barrier radiant heat pipe. Was wondering about the fittings.  Thank you. 

Asked by: Stevehvac
Good morning, All SharkBite fittings can withstand up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 200 PSI. They system can contain potable water or up to 100% glycol solution. As long as your system meets our specification requirements, you won't have any issues using our fittings.

Is there a maximum recommended length of run for 1/2" pex tubing ? What impact (equivalent of straight run) do 90 degree bends have on the run of pipe?

Asked by: SMCS
Good morning, There isn't a maximum run length. We make coils up to 500 feet long. You can find complete installation information by following this link: http://www.sharkbite.com/sharkbite/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/SB_PEX-INSTALLATION-INSTRUCTIONS.pdf

Is it ok to paint the pipe and not damage? All the pipes are exposed in my basement. I want to paint this orange pipe white to match others. Tks

Asked by: Hannah
Good afternoon, We wouldn't recommend painting it as it could dry out the tubing.
