An oxygen barrier pipe in short protects your water heater from rusting also any other system components such as valves etc. Corrosion can happen and cause damage in as little as one to two years unprotected. The oxygen barrier pipe prevents oxygen from penetrating the material of the central heater system thus reducing greatly the risk of damage and rust. The pipe is either a cross linked polyethylene or polybutylene.
The rifeing oxygen barrier pex tubing comes in sizes from 3/8″ to 1″ and works with crimp, clamp, compression pex press and sharkbite press connections. It’s maximum temperature is of 180’f up to a pressure of 100psi or up to a pressure of 160psi at 73’f.
Pex A grade tubing is the highest grade available and can be used in closed loop hydronic heating systems. It comes in sizes from 5/16′ to 4′ and has a thermal memory so you can repair any kinks in the pipe by heating it and it will return to its original form. It is also freeze resistant. It works with all types of pex connectors up to 1″. But only proper expansion fittings and shark bite fittings work with connections from 1 1/4″ to 2″. It has a maximum temperature of 200’f up to a pressure of 80psi or 160psi at 73’f.
