(Bedford, MA) – F.W. Webb Company has added Uponor PEX-a piping and fittings to their plumbing and heating product lineup.

Backed by over 50 years of proven performance, Uponor PEX-a is the leading choice among contractors today.
Unlike copper and CPVC systems, PEX resists corrosion, pitting and scaling.
