Aquatherm Advantages

  • Reliable and safe fusion connections saved considerable labor time
  • Superior flow rates allowed for reduced pipe sizing, requiring less space
  • Lighter weight (70% less than steel) eased fabrication and installation

The Challenge

Promoting sustainability and efficiency with a piping system that would not require open flames near the wood framing.

The Solution

Aquatherm’s heat fusion connections offered a quick, safe installation while helping to reduce installation time by over 30% and save precious installation space.


By using Aquatherm, we were able to downsize pipe and reduce insulation with a smaller diameter footprint throughout the building. With steel and copper you start out with, in typical installations, a 6-inch pipe and once you insulate it, the result is a 9-inch pipe.
