Engineers prefer Aquatherm piping systems to other alternatives because polypropylene is not affected by aggressive mediums and tends to last longer and perform better under extreme conditions.
The performance of most piping systems declines over time as interaction between the piping materials and the medium they carry weakens the walls and connections, or corrosion build-up reduces the inner diameter of the pipe. But Aquatherm piping systems are manufactured from over 97% pure polypropylene, a material prized for its resistance to chemical interaction. In fact, polypropylene piping is often used in acid waste systems and de-ionized water systems because of its chemical neutrality. Aquatherm has taken this level of quality and brought it into the realm of domestic plumbing and mechanical systems.
By specifying a material that will not suffer from corrosion or demineralization, engineers help ensure that the piping system will not leak or fail prematurely, even if subjected to unforeseen abuse.
