Hi.

Pex white; hydronic heating system piping. (radiant heating in slabs or wood floors.)

CPVC: used for sprinkler systems, can also be used underground for service domestic systems and water supplies. Ultraviolet light is damaging to this product.

Hope this helps.

Mark, although I feel I am pretty knowledgeable about different piping materials, I do not call out the elastomeric piping material unless I am sure and can read the material designation # or material name on the piping material. For example if it doesn’t say PB2110 or polybutlyene on the material I don’t definitively call it out.
