Aluminum PEX Tubing Install for Radiant Heating Example

Aluminum PEX Tubing used to Connect Boiler to Mixing Valve with Radiant Manifold Example

Here is a picture on how to use Aluminum PEX Tubing to connect a boiler to a mixing valve connected to a radiant heat pex manifold. Using Aluminum PEX Tubing can be easier because it holds it's shape better than tradional PEX. It won't sag as much either. Also, the Aluminum PEX Tubing will be held in place better and thus should be quieter.

Here is picture on how to use Aluminum PEX Tubing to connect a boiler to a distibution pex manifold. The first 4 ports are used for 2 radiant heating zones with a mixing valve (like the 2 pictures above) - the bottom 2 loops go straight out to another mixing valve with pex manifold - but needed more flexible PEX pipe to get to where it is located.
