Most Americans take the water systems that bring clean water to and from their homes and businesses for granted. They use their plumbing systems every day to brush their teeth, flush the toilet, and fill a glass of water without thinking twice about where that water came from or where it will go.  


But could you imagine a day without water? Without safe, reliable water and wastewater services?


While it may seem unimaginable for most Americans, there are communities in the U.S. that have lived without water. From man-made tragedies in Flint, Michigan, to water scarcity issues in California, to wastewater runoff in the Great Lakes.

Last month, Uponor joined elected officials, water utilities, community leaders, and businesses participating in the third annual, a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water. Led by the Value of Water Campaign, hundreds of organizations across the country will host events Oct. 12, 2017 aimed at raising awareness about the crucial need for investment in our nation’s water infrastructure to ensure that no American community is left without safe and reliable water.

Uponor’s core purpose is to partner closely with professionals to create better human environments — and water is a part of everything we do. From our plumbing systems to our radiant floor heating systems, water flows through our PEX tubing to plumb a structure or heat a space. With more than 17 billion feet of Uponor PEX tubing installed across the globe, water matters to our business, the trade industry, and to our customers. Learn more about our solutions here.


In order to move the industry in the right direction, Uponor partnered with Belkin International to create the new company. Phyn represents the next wave of the smart home and will create an intelligent water solution that protects family homes and businesses from leak damage, enables mindful conservation, and enhances household water usage with automated and anticipatory controls.
