Lifespan of Aquatherm PP-R Piping Systems

Polypropylene Lifespan

With the right material and solid connections, our systems are made to perform well even decades after installation.

There’s a reason they tell you not to throw away plastic. PP-R and PP-RCT lasts for decades in piping applications, and keeps going long after other building components have worn out and started to fail. It’s important to have a piping system that won’t wear out, corrode or scale up, as pipes are costly and difficult to replace. Sustainable building materials, like aquatherm’s pipes and fittings, last for the life of the building they’re installed in, and then can be easily recycled.

aquatherm’s PP-R and PP-RCT are hydrophobic, meaning they repel water from its surface. This protects the pipe wall from eroding down and leaking. The smooth, chemically inert material prevents scaling and corrosion build up. so the performance of the pipe never suffers, even without chemical treatment.

Imagine a piping system that performs as well after 50 years as when it was first installed. With aquatherm, you don’t have to imagine anymore.
