Viega Adds ViegaPEX for Reclaimed Water to Product Offerings
ViegaPEX™ tubing line expanded to include purple PEX for reclaimed water applications.
WICHITA, Kan. – Viega LLC diversified its ViegaPEX tubing line, introducing ViegaPEX for reclaimed water.
ViegaPEX tubing for reclaimed water has the highest rating for chlorine and is available in ½", ¾" and 1" sizes. With the same 25-year warranty as ViegaPEX tubing, new ViegaPEX for reclaimed water comes to the market with the trust that professionals have already established with Viega. All Viega tubing is quality controlled, with the resin being manufactured by Viega.
“This product addition meets industry demands and diversifies Viega’s portfolio,” said Jeff Courtney, product director, plastics systems at Viega. “There is a growing demand for smart plumbing options and Viega has always been on the forefront of innovation, so adding ViegaPEX tubing for reclaimed water is a natural evolution for us.”
ViegaPEX tubing for reclaimed water can aid a home in receiving LEED® or National Green Building Standard™ points. Installation of the new tubing alongside other Viega PureFlow® solutions is seamless with system-matched tools and jaws.
The process of water reclamation varies, however, often after collection water is run through an in-home filtration system, and then is then reused in other areas of the home such as laundry, toilets and irrigation systems. Purple is the standard color of tubing for these reclaimed water lines. According to 2012 EPA Guidelines for Water Reuse, the use of recycled water in lieu of imported water for replenishing the groundwater has saved tens of millions of dollars a year in water purchases.
