Plumbing

The REHAU PEXa plumbing system is designed for pros.

Expand, Compress, Done! EVERLOC+® compression-sleeve fittings and RAUPEX® PEXa UV shield pipe come together to create a secure plumbing system that installs in seconds. Precise, secure connections made immediately, EVERY time in ANY weather, are instantly ready for pressure testing.

PEXa pipe flexibility helps you move fast

RAUPEX UV shield PEXa pipe offers proven durability while saving money on both materials and installation. It also means added flexibility and precision during project planning while maintaining excellent long-term flow performance and water quality.


Premium fittings offer peace of mind

Our unique EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings feature the latest in fitting technology, including four sealing edges designed to deliver leak-free reliability. 


Better together

Our battery-powered tools expand the RAUPEX, then compress the sleeve, allowing for immediate pressure test. No matter the size or temperature, 2 expansions and 1 compression is all that's ever needed with EVERLOC+.

How do installers use this system?


Commercial plumbing

REHAU’s EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fitting system is available up to 2 in. for commercial plumbing projects.  Watch this video for the results of a independent, timed installation study from the Home Innovation Research Labs: See how EVERLOC+ was installed 65% faster than an identical copper solder system

For builders, developers and engineers, certain plumbing systems best meet these criteria:

  1. Is the manufacturer willing to stand by their product?
  2. Will contractors run with this system if specified?

See why PipeCraft Mechanical Ltd. advised the developer to use EVERLOC+ for a townhouse development
