Can the VXT be installed using PEX tubing?

    I wouldn't connect PEX directly to the a boiler, but if the feed is into a wet return, why not? Sure.

    It doesn't have mounting brackets that I am aware of, so you will need to figure out a way to support it. PEX directly to it wouldn't be my first choice. Perhaps a length of copper on either side to provide some stable mounting and then switch to PEX.
