Pro Picks demonstrates the amazing characteristics of PEX piping

Uponor is the largest manufacturer of PEX piping in the world. The CPT crew got to talk with Wes Sisco of Uponor North America and ask him all sorts of questions about what goes into the making of the popular plumbing product. Wes gave them a demonstration of how PEX works, showed how pipes are stretched onto fittings, and used a machine to showcase the crazy durability and overall integrity of this amazing plastic piping.

In every episode of Pro Picks, Mark and Josh discuss the new tools, gear and materials that they’re excited about and literally give them goose bumps (especially Josh). They also rant and rave about existing products they’ve used, love, and feel that every pro should consider.
