Here’s a solution that makes sense in back-to-back hydronic piping applications. Uponor’s ProPEX® engineered polymer (EP) opposing-port tees eliminate the need for additional tees, elbows and piping to facilitate connections for back-to back terminal units, reducing the number of required fittings by 75% and the number of required connections by 60%.

In traditional installations, you would need two tees, two elbows and extra piping to connect to back-to-back terminal units. But now, you can connect with just one tee, fewer connections and less piping. It’s so easy and so simple, saving time, materials and money.

Available in 1″, 1¼”, 1½” and 2″ flow-through sizes with ¾” outlets, the ProPEX EP opposing-port tees are listed to ASTM F1960 as well as NSF 14, and they are code-compliant with the International Mechanical Code (IMC) and the Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) for hydronic heating and cooling applications.

Best of all, the tees are part of Uponor’s complete plumbing system offering that is backed by a 25-year transferable warranty on Uponor PEX pipe and ProPEX fittings, so you can feel confident the products and systems you’re installing are built to last.
