The Safest, Most Reliable Choice For Potable Applications

Keeping drinking water clean requires a clean piping system. Aquatherm Green Pipe is completely free of heavy metals and toxic chemicals, providing the safest option in the market for drinking water and food processing.

Aquatherm Green Pipe sets the standard for potable water systems worldwide. Potable water should be free of chemicals and contaminants, and that's exactly what Aquatherm Green Pipe delivers. Whereas many other piping materials allow trace amounts of chemicals to be pulled from the pipe walls and into the water we drink, Aquatherm's polypropylene Green Pipe is hydrophobic, which prevents it from corroding or leaching.

Aquatherm Green Pipe is available from 1/2" to 18" in diameter and can be used for both hot and cold potable systems. Green Pipe is approved for potable water under the UPC and IPC and in accordance with the CSA. It has been deployed in hospitals, hotels, office buildings, homes, and numerous other projects across North America.
