Flowguard Gold® Plumbing SystemsDeliver Performance Homeowners Want
In an independent survey, new homebuyers named several critical concerns associated with plumbing systems: noise or water hammer, corrosion and pitting and water purity. In every case, the FlowGuard Gold plumbing system proved superior. It meets and often exceeds the performance of metal plumbing systems time after time.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY. A FlowGuard Gold plumbing system is more energy-efficient than metal plumbing systems. As an insulator, it doesn't lose heat the way metal pipes can. Homeowners save on water heating costs since there's less waste while they wait for running water to get hot.
REDUCED CONDENSATION. FlowGuard Gold pipe and fittings virtually eliminate condensation, significantly reducing the risk of damage to walls, structure and contents.
QUIET OPERATION. Surveys show water hammer as the number one complaint from people living in homes with copper plumbing. FlowGuard Gold plumbing systems reduce the potential for this annoying noise.
INCREASED RELIABILITY AND MAINTAINED WATER QUALITY. A FlowGuard Gold system lasts longer than metal plumbing systems. That's because FlowGuard Gold piping systems never corrode, pit or scale. While contaminants can leach into drinking water from metal plumbing, your customers will know their water stays pure. The NSF mark certifies our pure water promise.
VALUE WITHOUT ADDING COSTS. The price of FlowGuard Gold pipe and fittings is less than metal systems and far more stable. Furthermore, our system can be installed reliably, safely and efficiently with no need for cumbersome cutting tools or torches, usually having contractors' work time significantly reduced. Professional installation with our proven, reliable, solvent-cement system is your assurance of a worry-free system for your customers.
NOTHING IS PROVEN MORE RELIABLE. Based on advanced polymer chemistry and made by licensed processors, FlowGuard Gold plumbing systems have a proven track record in millions of homes, condominiums, apartments, hotels and high-rise buildings.
"The main thing our product offers both builders and homeowners is terrific value," says Mike Vaughn, Senior Business Manager. "A FlowGuard Gold plumbing system is an economical product that eliminates many of the problems associated with traditional metal plumbing systems and therefore is an upgrade in construction quality. It's benefits include energy efficiency, reduced noise and condensation, durability, maintained water quality and ease of installation. Our parent company installed the first CPVC plumbing system in 1959. Since then it has been used with great success in millions of homes and other buildings."
