This is ok for hot water using pex-b pipe?

Asked by Mike November 10, 2020

Bottom Line: it depends on how hot you plan to run the water through the PEX lines you're installing. The PEX itself will have a temperature rating, as will the fittings and insulation you use. Double check that all of the parts are rated well above the hottest temperature at which you'll be operating your system. I went through this same process and currently have this product installed on PEX lines in my hot water heating system throughout my house. Other Tips: 1) Also, be sure that if it's installed near any other heat sources, that those sources don't exceed the temperature ratings of your components. 2) Make sure to oversize the holes you drill through the joists (not too big to weaken the structure, but larger than the OD of the PEX used for your hot water heating system. Where that's not possible, be sure to install plastic insulators(examples: https://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Plastic-Pipe-Insulator-10-Pack-23074A10/202032971; or https://www.homedepot.com/p/Apollo-1-2-1-in-Universal-Plastic-Insulated-Stud-Suspension-Clamp-10-Pack-APXSUSCLAMPU/305755921). The issue is that as the PEX heats up, it expands and will rub against the hole you drill in the joist. It releases and audible noise while heating . This is especially a nusiance at night when heating is most active and you're trying to sleep (I speak from experience here). 3) Along those same lines, be sure to leave some extra tubing at turns and bends, to allow for that expansion and not to stress your lines. Stress in your lines can weaken them over time through fatigue. 4) Finally, always be sure to pressure test your system and use a mixture of water and soap spray on all fittings to find any leaks before insulating and filling your system. Also, fill your system while the walls are open and start your heat and go through several cycles, which will allow you to address any issues before closing the walls up. Hope this all helps. Good luck!

Is this UV protected for covering an exterior air conditioner metal pipe? If no, why not?

I don't think it is. I covered mine with metal duct tape for UV protection. to get a UV protected I think you would have to go to your HVAC repair company.

Can this insulation be used on PEX?

I'm not an expert but it's just insulation, I don't know why not.

What kind/make of paint would you use on this to provide UV resistance and reduce solar gain?

I covered it with a wood cover because my chickens ate the last one. No need for paint.

As far as I can tell after checking online these are NOT UV rated. I covered mine with silver duct tape to try to protect them.

I like the thickness and sturdiness of the foam. The adhesive on it isn't very strong. My niece gave me a special tape to put on to keep the foam closed around the tubing.

I was checking my Anode on my hot water heater and checked the rest of the piping while I was at it. I noticed that the galvanized 3/4" nipples had a lot of corrosion inside them and replaced them also. These longer SS connectors (24") were bent into a heat trap shape to allow the heat to stop passing up the piping. I also added fome heat trap nipples to both the cold and hot pipes. To finish the job I added some foam insulation to both sides. All obtained from Home Depot. I'm hoping that the SS connector will act as a dielectric separator also.

Helped Hot Rifle
The foregrip on my rifle was getting smoking(literally) hot when shooting the in the hot sun. I put about 6 inches of this around the foregrip where my support hand rests. Even after 100 rounds of .308 semi-auto firing in the hot sun the rubber did not get hot at all. A little green camo spray paint on the rubber and it blends in the the gun furniture now. Problem solved!
