The new, high-flow branch and flow-through EP multiport tees are targeted for commercial installations where supply lines are required to be upsized due to pressure or code requirements. One multiport does the same job as three separate tees, reducing the amount of connections by 45%. Both the branch and flow-through multiports feature 1¼" inlets with three ¾" outlets.

“We are continuing to see exponential growth in our commercial plumbing business and are responding to market needs with products that make it viable to install Uponor PEX in any application,” says Casey Swanson, sr. manager, Commercial Segment, at Uponor.

Both products feature Uponor’s unique ProPEX® connection that capitalizes on the shape memory of Uponor PEX pipe to create strong, durable connections that hold tight with 1,000 pounds of radial force.
