The required annual reports can educate communities on water quality
The Water Quality Assn. (WQA) urges homeowners concerned about their local public water system's water quality to utilize their municipality’s Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The U.S.
Imbibe tubing is NSF-61-certified for use in drinking water and food preparation. Extruded of linear low-density polyethylene, it is flexible, is chemically inert and provides users the ability to use push-to-connect, compression or hose barb fittings.

The average American household leaks more than 10,000 gal of water every year
Each year in the U.S., leaks rob homes of more than 1 trillion gal of water. To help Americans stop water waste, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense program is challenging Americans to become "leak detectives" during the eighth annual Fix a Leak Week, March 14 to 20, 2016.
Preventive tips and best practices for the cold winter months
While frozen pipe is traditionally associated with single-family homes, it also can cause havoc with commercial, institutional and multi-family buildings.
With winter’s freezing temperatures likely to stick around another month, WaterSignal, the manufacturer of a system that sends real-time water usage data and alerts to building owners/managers, is providing recommendations to safeguard pipe in unheated areas before it cause freeze and cause messy, often expensive issues.
ISO-compliant, industry-wide EPD covers PVC water and wastewater piping
The Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Assn. (PVCPA) published the first North American industry-wide environmental product declaration (EPD) for water and sewer piping, and it has been verified by NSF Sustainability, a division of NSF Intl.
The Inline 400 pressure boosting system is a compact and economical solution to most water pressure improvement needs. The system couples a pump and motor with simple flow-based controls to provide a typical water pressure boost of up to 40 psi, depending on the application’s need. The unit’s symmetrical design allows for easy installation, mounting either vertically or horizontally to fit within most existing plumbing configurations, including those with limited space.
Expert recommends proactive strategies to monitor water usage data
While most of the country braces for more snow and ice, adding onto an already recordbreaking season, the water infrastructure is cracking below. As a result, when the thaw does come, pipe may break above and below ground, causing massive water loss and high utility costs.
Costs can be substantially higher for commercial, multifamily and institutional properties if proactive steps are not being taken.
