Fire Chief Issues Heating, Christmas Tree Warnings
Tis the season — for presents, mistletoe and caroling — but unfortunately, also for hazards linked to home heating sources and Christmas trees.
What kind of a flexible plastic pipe can I use for a hot water home heating system?

I have an old house that needs a furnace, and the crawl space is only a fott or less high. Can I feed a flexible plastic pipe through the crawl space to a new hot water heating furnace?

Aqua PEX , Dura PEX , Aluma PEX and other Pex products works well in concrete , quit flexable and easy to work with in tight locations .
Aqua PEX works very well with freeze situations and returns to normal size when warmed used in Hydronic systems (heating systems using heated water or glycol) and normal potable water systems
Dura PEX will burst at about the same as copper works well in concrete , used in Hydronic systems and normal potable water systems
Aluma PEX will burst at about the same as copper but can be shaped and holds the shape well used in normal potable water systems (I have very limited experiances with this one as I don’t have the tooling )

There are brass or PVC fittings available , crimp rings , clamps or as in the Aqua PEX you can actually stretch (special tool) the pipe and it will shrink onto the fittings
