Despite the recent repeal of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing from the California Plumbing Code, Uponor will continue its efforts to fully reinstate PEX in the code.
Despite the recent repeal of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing
from the California Plumbing Code, homebuilders, plumbing contractors and
consumers should be heartened to know that Uponor
will continue its efforts to fully reinstate PEX in the code.
Following the 45-day comment period, which
ended July 19, the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) is
evaluating a revised Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and will presumably put
PEX back on the path to reinstatement into the state plumbing code.
“We are committed to giving Californians the
right to choose the plumbing product that is best for them and their
applications,” says Rich Houle, associate product manager,
Uponor Commercial Plumbing. “We are confident our efforts, coupled with those
of the CBSC and the Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association, will restore PEX to
the state code in the near future.”
