Uponor PEX hydronic piping systems offer value, durability, and performance to your heating and cooling projects. Using Uponor PEX pipe to transfer water in a hydronic heating or cooling system is a durable, economical method that helps keep costs down and offers greater longevity for the system.
How hydronic piping works

In a hydronic piping system, Uponor PEX pipe transfers water from heating or cooling sources (such as boilers or chillers) to terminal units (such as baseboard radiators, fan coils, variable-air volume units and chilled beams) to heat or cool a structure. Using water instead of air to heat or cool a structure is highly efficient because water has the capacity to transport energy 3,500 times greater than air.

Reduced liability

The Uponor PEX system reduces liability in several ways. First, because the flexible system requires fewer fittings, it has fewer potential leak points. Also, Uponor PEX resists corrosion, pitting and scaling so the system is manufactured to last. And best of all, Uponor PEX and the ProPEX® system cannot be dry-fit, eliminating concerns that a connection is made.

Increased peace of mind

Because Uponor PEX tubing does not use torches, glues, chemicals or solvents like traditional copper and CPVC systems, it provides another win for the environment — keeping dangerous chemicals out of our plumbing systems and groundwater.

Comprehensive offering
Uponor PEX hydronic piping systems are available in sizes up to 4" to meet any application need. Uponor’s ProPEX expansion fittings are available in engineered polymer (EP) and lead-free (LF) brass in up to 3" sizes.
