Anyone recognize this type of PEX?

Recommended Posts

Found this in a home, didn't make sense to me. Home was built in 1990 and had PB as a main line coming in but changed to copper as soon as it came in. Most of the home had copper but the basement area had this black hose labeled as PEX, made in Germany. No PEX I recognized, I think it may be for radiant heating only, not potable water, so I recommended checking with a plumber but I'd like to be able to give them an answer myself.

Thanks Eric, looks like you may have it, it was made in Germany, HO is the manufacturing code. I'll go back to verify some of the markings, now that I know what I'm looking for, but it does appear to be a PEX product made for potable water. Thanks.

It's surprising how many different types of connectors are now available for PEX tubing:
