No plumbing system is perfect, but FlowGuard Gold® CPVC solves many of the issues associated with alternative piping systems like PEX.
FlowGuard Gold® CPVC is 100% immune to corrosion or degradation caused by chlorinated water and will never fail due to contact with normal drinking water.
Since 1959, more than 11 billion feet of FlowGuard Gold® CPVC pipe has been installed in the U.S.—giving it the longest, most proven track record among non-metallic plumbing systems. This reliability means that we've never been the subject of a class-action lawsuit.
Virginia Tech researchers found that of all common plumbing materials, FlowGuard Gold® CPVC has the least impact on water quality.
