Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water Tubing Awarded Water Conservation Award from Environmental Design and Construction magazine

November 11, 2009

During the 2009 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo held in Phoenix Nov. 11-13, Uponor AquaPEX® Reclaimed Water Tubing won the 2009 Water Conservation Readers’ Choice award from Environmental Design and Construction magazine.

Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water tubing offers all the benefits of Uponor’s PEX-a tubing for potable-water applications — flexible, durable, corrosion-resistant, 20-year proven history in plumbing, 25-year limited warranty — with a layer of purple coloring to designate the tubing for greywater systems, helping home and commercial building professionals incorporate sustainable building practices and meet LEED® or National Green Building Standard™ points.

In a greywater system, water is captured from sinks and showers into a holding tank where it goes through a filtering process. Then, specially designated purple tubing — the industry standard color for reclaimed water systems — distributes the filtered, reclaimed water from the holding tank out to laundry, toilets and irrigation systems.

Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water tubing is listed to NSF-rw and AWWA C904 and uses Uponor’s proven ProPEX® fitting technology for fast, easy, reliable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water tubing is available in ½", ¾" and 1" 300-foot coils and is also backed by a 25-year limited warranty when installed by an Uponor-trained plumbing professional.
