Link Houses in Fittja, Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm, Sweden 

The Project

During 2009, the Stökhagen community in Fittja, Stockholm, replaced their old pipe-work with an Uponor Pre-insulated pipe system. The house owners did not have to move out during the maintenance period. Consisting of 78 link-attached houses, the area was built in 1971. The house owners had problems for many years with steel and copper pipe corrosion. Eventually, the corrosion caused so much trouble that it could no longer be solved by isolated measures. The whole pipe-work needed to be replaced.

The Solution

Despite having no previous experience of working with Uponor Ecoflex pipes, installers Miljöentreprenören AB found the system ideal for this kind of project. “Working with Uponor Ecoflex pipes was great,” says Jan Åberg from Miljöentreprenören AB. “It was flexible, easy to handle and fast to connect,. and the house owners did not have to move out during the maintenance period. They also had access to tap water and heating the whole time.”
