SharkBite 1/2 Inch x 100 Feet RADIANT HEAT PEX PIPE

Model # U860O100|Store SKU # 1001013603

Overview

Model # U860O100 Store SKU # 1001013603

SharkBite PEX tubing is a cross-linked polyethylene tubing for a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing applications. Manufactured with an oxygen barrier for radiant floor and hydronic heating applications (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-Fit Fitting. This feature only works if the tubing is cut between the SharkBite imprint pattern.

  1. Strong, flexible, corrosion-resistant pipe
  1. Flexibility reduces number of fittings needed to complete a job; reducing cost and leak points
  1. SharkBite imprint pattern provides a visual aid to ensure pipe is fully inserted when using SharkBite push-to-connect fittings

I am thinking of using RADIANT HEAT PEX PIPE in a closed loop heating system filled with a mixture of 40% water and 60% propylene glycol. Is it ok to use RADIANT HEAT PEX PIPE with this mixture? If not is there another product I can use as antifreeze?

Asked by: Dennis
You can use up to 100% Glycol with SharkBite Oxygen Barrier pipe. The 40/60 mix you are inquiring about is to spec with this product

Is it possible to paint red/blue Sharkbite PEX?  If so, what type of paint or product works and/or adheres best?  Thanks. 

Asked by: Paul
It is not recommended to paint SharkBite PEX Pipe with any type of paint. Doing so could damage the pipe and void all warranty.

PEX pipe/tubing would be a very nice way to install a small air supply system in my personal work...

PEX pipe/tubing would be a very nice way to install a small air supply system in my personal workshop. It would never operate at pressures above 150psi, and usually more like 125-140 psi max. The ambient temperature range in the shop would be 55 deg to 85 degrees F. While PEX is suitable and certified for potable water, is there any real reason not to use it for air? Thank you.
Asked by: jimintx
We can only guarantee our SharkBite products for potable water applications. If you think it will work for your project, that is a question only you can answer. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

Should i use the oxygen barrier pex pipe for hot water in Arizona attic or could i use the red cheaper pex.

Asked by: Brad
are you using it for heat or for hot water? The reason to use the O2 barrier is because, when using it for heat, it's a closed system and the oxygen dissolved in the water through the permeable red piping *could* corrode your furnace. If you're just using it for hot water (out of a shower, faucet, washer, etc) the red should be fine. Orange is for closed-loop systems.

How many feet per 100 square foot?

Or, if I have a 12x15 180 sq ft room, generally how much tubing would I need? I have a 3200 sq ft house, trying to figure how much I will need?
Asked by: Slam
well.. you can't go off square footage alone because you're looking at linear distances of tubing compared to areas... for instance. 100sqft of a room 10'x10' (120" x 120") you would have 8 bays of joists (assuming 16" on center), each 10 feet long. Since you want to do a loop in each bay, you would need roughly 20' of tubing per bay times 8 bays or 160 feet of PEX (roughly) as an extreme example to show that it can vary, if your room were 6 inches wide and 200 feet long (still 100 square feet) you would need 400 feet of PEX to heat the same area. I realize that's a ridiculous example but it shows that, as your room gets more and more rectangular, the linear distances increase. You're best to measure the length of the room following the joists, multiply by 2, and then count how many bays you need to fill.

Is the shark bite brand inside diameter the same as the Rifeng brand ? Can the different brands be joined witha coupling

Asked by: Ray
The ID of SharkBite PEX is .50 inches, the OD is .625 inches. If the ID/OD of the Rifeng matches the ID/OD of the SharkBite PEX, you could join these pipe by using a SharkBite coupling.
