I tried asking the question on John's Blog on Taco's site, but Wordpress doesn't seem to be sending out log-in passwords there.

Anyway - who makes the red Pex in this picture:

    The PEX pictured is MrPEX brand barrier tubing. This was the first time I used it. I like it a lot, very flexible and easy to work with. The 3/4" lines run to remote manifolds for either towel warming, in-floor or panel rads. I have used miles of Fosta PEX but the budget didn't allow for it here. I have used it many times since, solid company and great service.

    Thanks Eric!

    Their tubing is made in the Netherlands if I remember right.  LK maybe?

    Do you order it directly from them?

    is made in Sweden, at least the barrier type is.  I like it a lot, basically same to work with as Uponor.  My supplier sells it in 1,000 foot boxes, the uncoil-er is nice if you have a lot to do.  It's my favorite for slabs and the tight bends for 6" O.C.
