Uponor First PEX Manufacturer to Offer up to 2" Purple Pipe for Reclaimed Water Systems

Uponor AquaPEX® Reclaimed Water pipe is the first PEX pipe available in sizes up to 2 for reclaimed water applications. To further meet the growing demand for sustainable building systems, Uponor North America (Uponor) is the first in the industry to offer a PEX purple pipe in sizes up to 2" for commercial and residential reclaimed water applications. In addition to its existing ½", ¾" and 1" sizes, Uponor AquaPEX® Reclaimed Water pipe is now available in 1¼", 1½" and 2" sizes as well.

"Uponor has a strong sustainability culture and looks to provide products that align with the company’s philosophy of respecting the vital balance between people, planet and profit," says Jayson Drake, director of Portfolio Management at Uponor. “Extending our current offering of Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water pipe supports our mission of providing products that help our business partners build sustainable structures around the world."

The new offering comes in response to a growing need for water reuse systems in drought-stricken areas around the country. Offering a reclaimed water pipe in larger sizes gives professionals the opportunity to design and install even more reclaimed water applications to help conserve fresh-water resources.

Uponor's extended offering, which is available in 300-ft. coils for ½", ¾" and 1" sizes and 10-ft. and 20-ft. straight lengths for 1", 1¼", 1½" and 2" sizes, provides all the benefits of Uponor AquaPEX that plumbing engineers and contractors have come to rely on — flexibility, durability, corrosion resistance, a 20-year proven history in plumbing, a 25-year limited warranty, and one simple ASTM F1960 ProPEX® expansion connection system that does not require any torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

"The best part about Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water pipe is the fact that plumbing professionals don’t have to switch products when installing potable plumbing and reclaimed water systems,” says Drake. “They can seamlessly move from Uponor AquaPEX for the potable system to Uponor AquaPEX Reclaimed Water for the reclaimed water system without having to switch piping materials, tools or fittings."
