Aquatherm Advantages

  • Reduced material costs (and concerns about jobsite theft of copper)
  • Fusion outlets allowed for easy fabrication of room taps, and other labor savings
  • In over 400 fusion connections, only one leak occurred during testing -- and the system has been running leak free ever since

The Challenge

Copper prices were at an all-time high and the owner sought a less expensive, long-lasting alternative.

The Solution

Aquatherm Green Pipe was used for the majority of the project’s domestic water piping system.

An experienced Jimmy Hughes was in the process of bidding a potable water piping job at the Comfort Suites on Stewarts Ferry Pike in Nashville when copper prices were at an all-time high in fall 2008. As owner and president of Hughes Bro., Inc., he has been in the plumbing trade for 37 years and has operated his own business for 27. He has obviously seen a lot of changes, and he’s not afraid to make them himself.
