AquaPEX® Reclaimed Water Tubing
AquaPEX® Reclaimed Water tubing offers all the benefits of Uponor AquaPEX — 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. (For further information, refer to www.usgbc.org or www.nahb.org.)
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.
AquaPEX Reclaimed Water tubing is listed to NSF-rw and AWWA C904 and uses the same proven ProPEX® fitting technology as Uponor AquaPEX for fast, easy, reliable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges. It is available in ½", ¾" and 1" 300-foot coils.
