Courtesy: AquAquatherm's polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping systems now feature a PEX compression adapter made of PP-R and lead-free brass. This adapter allows installers to easily transition between Aquatherm and PEX in potable water and radiant systems. Aquatherm's PEX adapter is manufactured to ASTM F1960. A male-end design allows installers to fuse directly into fusion outlets, making it quicker and easier to install. The PEX adapter is available in ½-, ¾-, and 1-in. diameters. The compression adapter has a street connection that can be welded directly into an Aquatherm fitting, providing greater ease of use. It uses an expander ring and clamp connection. The PP-R portion of the adapter is made from the same material as Aquatherm Green Pipe and is attached to the zero-lead brass portion.
