Transitions can be hard, but they certainly don’t have to be. Uponor is introducing several new products that easily transition Uponor PEX piping to metal or other rigid piping systems. These new fittings can be used in plumbing, hydronic piping and radiant heating/cooling systems. Here is an overview of the newest offerings:
