The Pexline Plumbing System is hygienic, non-toxic and complies with the requirements of AS/NZS 4020 Food Grade Standard – suitability of plumbing and water distribution system products for contact with potable water.
Pexline PE-X pipe will not corrode like traditional pipes made of copper or GI because it does not react with ionic species commonly found in water and the service environment. Use of Pexline PE-X pipe enables the use of a wide variety of Pexline polymer and DZR brass fittings by means of a mechanical jointing method, eliminating the use of solder and solvents. Pexline polymer fittings will not corrode and leach harmful and dangerous substances such as arsenic into the potable water.
A common and major problem encountered, particularly in “hard” water areas, is the build-up of scale on the internal walls of metal pipes, gradually reducing the internal bore and ultimately restricting flow and reducing water pressure at the faucet. This problem is costly and has a dramatic water wasting effect.
Being non-metallic, Pexline pipes are not affected by scale build-up.
Pexline pipes comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 2492 which allow a maximum light transmittance of 0.1%, and this prevents algae and bacterial formation, thus providing clean drinking water.
