Just a quick follow up -- in case anyone was curious as to whether I'd be sleeping in the shed tonight.... the pex did not melt. We wet ragged it and were able to sweat the joint about 6 inches...

OK, for anyone who's follow the thread of this so far, I have some answers from the manufacturer:

Ball valve = heat sink?

I have a piece of plumbing that I need to sweat a joint on. It's a mix of copper and pex, with a 3/4" ball valve between. There is approximately 6 inches of space between the joint I'll (or rather my...

Yeah, I'm just being snarky, since now I have to call a plumber and pay him a couple of hundred to do a job I could do fairly easily (well, as easily as any of my plumbing projects go). But it's...

Looks like the only connection method they mention is the expansion option -- which seems slick, except that you have to have the $400 expansion tool... which, I've discovered, is not available for...

I know -- it's strange. But the printing on the pipe is crystal clear -- it's WIRSBO pipe and the fittings used are expander fittings that Uponor uses.

So my original question stands -- if I have...

Thanks for the links, but I don't think this is either PB pipe or Quest Pex. The pipe is clearly labeled "WIRSBO HePEx" which I understand to be an Uponor product. I'll see if I can get some more...

I'm back with another question.

I'm modifying a portion of my FWH system (adding a loop). The system is plumbed using Pex (gray, 5/8", WIRSBO hePex) and expansion connections. I'm going to need to...

OK, diagram makes sense, but now I'm confused about the wiring:
1) thermostat wires to zone valves. OK.
2) Then wires from zone valves to aquastat (to the thermostat terminals?).
3) Where does...

Hmmm, you make a compelling argument for the zone valves.

Splitting off a zone -- do I need a check valve?

I have a single zone FHW system with three loops -- two for downstairs, one for upstairs. The feeds for all three loops come off a single manifold.

I also have a spare circulator (formerly used...
