When it comes to installing potable water systems in new homes they have recently started to use aquatherm® SHT flexible pipe with its sliding sleeve technology. They have been trained and certified by aquatherm® and are purchasing the pipe system from Plumbing World. Each installation is tested on completion and then a written warranty is completed for that job. The system also had the added attraction of BRANZ approval at high temperatures and pressures.
Brent and his team have now installed aquatherm® SHT in 50 houses and are finding it easy to install and cost efficient.
