FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is A Boiler Valve?

A boiler valve can be opened or closed to change the flow of boiler water. When open, boiler water will flow to the designated set of piping, and when closed, either the boiler water stops flowing, or at least flows in different directions. A universal law of hydronics is that water will always flow in the path of least resistance.

A boiler drain valve can be opened to allow boiler water to flush out completely, or at least partially to keep the boiler clean.

PEX fittings are used in most outdoor boiler applications and are very acceptable. PEX pipe fittings have a long history of success and high performance. PEX tubing does not handle high temperatures so steam systems are not designed with PEX.

The list includes but is not limited to -

  • Durable and corrosion-resistant
  • Lead-free for safe drinking water
  • Wide compatibility with different PEX pipes
  • Secure connections and leak-free joints
  • Resistant to high temperatures
  • Versatile in various shapes and sizes
  • Easy installation with common plumbing tools
  • Cost-effective and long-lasting
  • Low flow restriction and optimized water flow

High-quality brass fittings used in plumbing applications are typically lead-free, making them safe for use in drinking water systems. We recommend looking for pex to pipe fittings that comply with relevant standards, such as NSF/ANSI 61 or NSF/ANSI 372.

There are various types of fittings for PEX pipes available to accommodate different installation needs and plumbing configurations. This includes -

  • Clamp (or Cinch) Fittings
  • Sharkbite Fittings
  • Copper Crimp Fittings
  • Secure connections and leak-free joints
  • Expansion Fittings
  • Compression Fittings
