EVERLOC+ installation

EVERLOC+ Compression-sleeve Fitting System

"It's easy to put the fittings together even in cold weather. It's cold out here today and the fittings are going together great - once you get them together, they're together, they're secure"


- Jake Albertson, Bighorn Plumbing & Heating

Next-generation reliability, safety and the industry's fastest installation method

EVERLOC+ fittings at jobsite

You promise a reliable plumbing system. When your customer is counting on you, you’re counting on the system you install to deliver on that promise with secure connections from start to finish

We back you up on it. Uniquely designed for quick, consistent, secure connections in any weather, EVERLOC+® eliminates many of the variables that can complicate installation. An added bonus: Immediate pressure testing.

A complete system solution from REHAU. The EVERLOC+ system includes our polymer and lead-free brass fittings, PEXa sleeves and battery-powered tools. It is specifically designed for use with REHAU RAUPEX® pipe, known and trusted by installers around the world, backed by a 25-year limited warranty.

EVERLOC+ fittings

Reliability

  • Up to 1-year UV resistance with RAUPEX UV shield pipe, best in class for PEX pipe. 
  • EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings have four sealing edges to deliver leak-free reliability.
  • RAUPEX pipe resists corrosion, pitting and scale buildup.  Metal piping alternatives may slowly build up scale, potentially reducing flow.

Safety 

  • NSF 14/61 and CSA B137.5 Certified, for safe drinking water peace of mind, utilizing lead-free brass and polymer fittings. 
  • Stop leaks - 360 degree connection control, with a visual inspection, to know the system is assembled correctly.
  • No glues or chemicals are used during installation.
  • RAUPEX pipe flexibility can better absorb water hammer pressure surges than rigid pipe.

Savings

  • No wait time for pressure testing, even in cold conditions, so you can move on to the next job, or head home with confidence.  
  • RAUPEX pipe and EVERLOC+ can be installed up to 65% faster than traditional copper plumbing systems, according to the Home Innovations Research Labs.
  • Flexible pipe requires fewer fittings than rigid piping, reducing installation time and cost.

Independent researchers at Home Innovation Research Labs put EVERLOC+ to the test in three days of exhaustive time trial applications against copper with solder fittings and copper with press fittings.

The results: RAUPEX UV shield pipe and EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings took the checkered flag with installation times of up to 65 percent faster than copper solder plumbing systems.
