Most people don't recognize how much effect piping has on a building. A seemingly simple device is responsible for considerable material and labor capital during construction. As the building ages, corrosion in the piping system can cause serious damage to mechanical components and can ultimately lead to failure. Most commonly though, corrosion leads to leaks that could cost buildings millions in maintenance.
New material science has developed a solution to these problems, Polypropylene Random Co-polymer (PP-R) piping. The material itself is cheaper than copper and even comparable black steel. Additionally, the labor costs to install are significantly reduced due to the simple process or fusing the joints. On top of that, PP-R does not corrode, is non-toxic and is more environmentally friendly than any other piping product in the world.
