"Our new ProPEX EP
opposing-port tees are a time-, cost- and labor-saving
solution for hydronic piping systems," says Mark Hudoba,
director, Heating and Cooling at Uponor. "Instead of using
four fittings to change piping direction in a confined
space, an opposing-port tee can do it with just one part."

outlets, the ProPEX EP opposing-port tees are listed to ASTM
F1960 as well as NSF 14 and code-compliant with the
International Mechanical Code (IMC) and Uniform Mechanical
Code (UMC) for hydronic heating and cooling applications.
