Free Cross-Linked Polyethylene (PEX) Design Guide


Recommended Posts

Although it's been around for decades in Europe, cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe is still relatively new in North America. In fact, it's so new on this continent that many builders and home inspectors have no idea where it should be used or what constitutes best installation practices.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) intends to change all that. Working with the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) and the Partnership for Advanced Technology in Housing (P.A.T.H.), NAHB has developed a new, 128 page, Residential Pex Water Supply Plumbing Systems Design Guide

The guide is meant to increase the acceptance and proper use of (PEX)in water supply plumbing systems, and provides comprehensive design concepts and installation guidelines that builders, designers and trade contractors need to design and install PEX water supply systems and inspectors need to understand them.

The guide can be downloaded free in pdf format from ToolBase.org, the NAHB Research Center’s online resource for practical and technical information.
