IPEX Leaves the North American Hydronics Market


Recommended Posts

Effective October 31, 2008, IPEX discontinued the production and the sale of WarmRite Floor® pipe, fittings and accessories for the North American hydronic heating market.

According to a company press release the WarmRite product line no longer met the business targets that IPEX required and increased competitive pressure and poor market conditions had resulted in the continuing decline of WarmRite sales and profitability.

The company has announced that select WarmRite components will remain in their inventory for a period of time in order for customers to complete, maintain and service their heating systems. The current limited warranty will continue to apply to all WarmRite products installed.

This is not as a result of any product failure; however, it would probably be prudent for home inspectors that see this product installed in hydronic heating systems to at least inform their clients that the product is no longer availabe in the U.S. and, though they'll be able to get warranty coverage, any expansion of the existing system will have to be constructed using a different product.
