Aquatherm Advantages

  • Polypropylene does not scale or corrode and provides improved flow rate, which results in energy savings
  • The heat fusion process results in joints that are engineered to last over 50 years
  • Unlike copper, Aquatherm's polypropylene pipe offers stable pricing and no theft value

The Challenge

Southland Industries' staff designers sought to minimize waste and maximize value while targeting LEED Gold Certification on a new addition to the company's main campus.

The Solution

Aquatherm's Blue Pipe system was chosen due to the system’s cost savings, simple installation, and long-term reliability.

Aquatherm Piping System Helps Southland Industries Earn LEED Gold Certification

At Southland Industries (SI), developing and applying superior solutions has been integral to customer success since 1949. The Garden Grove, California-based company is one of the nation's largest mechanical contractors providing full design, construction, fabrication and maintenance services for HVAC, process-piping, plumbing, fire-protection, controls and automation systems, with a reputation for developing and applying superior solutions.

So when staff designers had to select a piping system for a new addition to the company's Garden Grove campus, Aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) pressure systems were a natural choice. A champion of "lean construction" as a means of minimizing waste and maximizing value, SI singled out Aquatherm products to help achieve its target of LEED Gold Certification.
