The Taco 0015e3 Is The ECM Solution For Contractors

The 0015e3™ from Taco Comfort Solutions is the 3 setting ECM circulator that replaces all 3-speed hydronic circulators in its class.

It follows on the heels of the 007e ECM circulator introduced by Taco last year, and uses the same simplified ECM technology—Install it, forget it™.

The 0015e3 is the ECM solution for contractors who want that same simplified technology, but prefer the option of three easy settings – Low, Medium, and High.

The 0015e3 is ideal for hydronic systems zoned with circulators or zone valves. It provides three settings for maximum head pressure to match system requirements - LOW (5 feet), MEDIUM (10 feet), or HIGH (18 feet), with 16 gpm maximum flow. And the 0015e3 delivers the same performance, reliability and ease of installation that made the 00® Series circulators famous.

  • As reliable and easy to install as the 007e
  • High-efficiency ECM motor uses up to 85% less electricity
  • BIO Barrier® protects the pump from contaminants
  • SureStart™ automatic unblocking and air purging mode
  • Integral Flow Check (IFC®) included
  • Double insulation – no ground wire required
  • Dual electrical knockout with 6 ft. stranded wire for easy installation
  • LED indicator lights
  • Optional 2-way flange

Watts RadiantPex-AL | Cross-linked Polyethylene Tubing with Aluminum Layer

RadiantPEX-AL is a composite pipe engineered for radiant floor heating. It's proven, long lasting and maintenance-free. Installers like it because it's lightweight, durable and can be shaped to fit any jobsite. The aluminum layer protects boiler systems against corrosion and it has superior temperature and pressure ratings.

RadiantPEX-AL is manufactured to American Standard Testing Methods for composite radiant pipe and fittings (ASTM F-1281-05). Included are requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, environmental stress cracking, sustained hydrostatic pressure strength, thermo-cycling resistance and bend strength among other tests. RadiantPEX-AL meets or exceeds these specifications.

  • Best of Both Worlds - Strength, memory and pressure rating of aluminum with the corrosion resistance of PEX, inside and out. 
  • Bends To Your Will - Rigid enough to hold itself in place for straight, neat runs with enough flexibility to go around obstacles without additional fittings. 
  • The Strong Silent Type - Doesn't expand as much as PEX, resulting in less noise in an underfloor application.
