Aquatherm Advantages

  • PP-R compared well to other pipe options price-wise
  • The lighter weight of Aquatherm eased installation
  • The natural insulation was an added bonus

The Challenge

The existing system was corroded and leaking.

The Solution

Aquatherm’s corrosion and rust resistant pipe was installed to alleviate those problems.

The nine-story, 296-room Embassy Suites Nashville – Airport hotel was built in the 1980s, and its original chiller and piping had reached their logical replacement point. Over the years a couple of the existing Schedule 40 carbon elbows on the system had sprung leaks and some of the galvanized pipe had experienced considerable corrosion. Thus, keeping the new piping leak- and corrosion-free was a big concern.
