Are you looking for the insulated underground pipe or just plain pex pipe?

I bought mine from andersons outdoor furnaces in wisc. They are on e-bay as:freeheat4u. "free" shipping from e-bay site, quoted on their site but $100 cheaper.

What's the underground PEX heat rating? I plan to buy a Waste Oil Boiler, and it can exit at as hi as 240f

I wouldn't want to run 240 water through the PEX of our OWB.Does the burner that you are planing to get have controls to keep the temp.at a lower setting.I would think if it didn't that I would install some kind of a limit so as to keep it from reaching temps that high.

i think i read  180 max for open systems and less for pressurized systems (i can't say for certain but i think i am very close)
you should be able to jsut ask a dealer or search on line. heck i think there are enough dealers here to quote a manufacturers warranty on the stuff.

What's OB Pex?

As far as 240f,  I was just stating how hot the oil boiler can get the water, but the manufacturer sets it at 180f, I beleive. And to keep the return above 140, to avoid corrosion, there's a mixing valve to add hot outlet water to the return
