Top brand name valves, stops and connecters such as Kits Dahl and Red-White.
Uponor PEX pipes and fittings [Cross-linked polyethylene (PEX)]
Uponor PEX pipe is the most popular plumbing material used today for ½-inch to 2-inch diameter pipes. With a 25 year warranty, there is good reason for that.
Aquatherm (a greener plumbing system made from recyclable polypropylene)
Designed for hot and cold potable water lines, it combines physical strength with high chemical purity and is one of the most environmentally friendly pipe types. Additionally, Aquatherm pipe is covered by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty; manufacturers of copper pipe do not offer a warranty on their product, so copper pipe is only covered by CuraFlo’s standard two-year warranty.
Stainless Steel has low general corrosion rate and can withstand very high-water flow rates. When you combine those characteristic with how quick & easy it is to install, it is no wonder Stainless Steel is being chosen more and more for plumbing systems.
Stainless Steel not only blends well with modern design, but it is also 100% recyclable and is suitable for use in all types of water conditions. Leaching of the alloys is not a problem as it falls well within the limits allowed for products in contact with drinking water supply (NSF-61 certified). Stainless Stell offers excellent resistance to full range of potable waters aggressive (corrosive) conditions including various chloride levels, low PH, softness and high temperatures. Therefore, Stainless Steel delivers better tasting drinking water than unlined copper pipes.
Stainless Steel provides a clean installation, allowing reduced flush times. No soldering (torch) is required; therefore, a hot work permit is not required and reduces the risk of fire hazards. Unlike copper, Stainless Steel does not require any additional coating (lining) to make it durable. Stainless Steel requires little to no down time, maintenance or replacement over the system’s life-cycle. Initial cots may be higher but overall the economic benefits of using Stainless Steel out-weight other materials.
CuraFlo’s Stainless Steel Pipe System has an expected lifetime of more than 50 years making it a great consideration for all or part of your RE-pipe projects.
Copper (Type “K”)
Copper pipe has traditionally been used to repipe large-diameter water mains and risers. Yet copper pipe is not commonly used today. However, when asked for or required under code, CuraFlo Repipe Services uses only the best type (K) copper sourced in North America.
CuraFlo uses the grade of pipe with the thickest wall for maximum strength and durability. Adding an interior epoxy lining to copper pipes, as in CuraFlo’s TriSure system, can make them as reliable as PEX.
