Commercial & Domestic Drinking Water Plumbing Solutions

Drinking water is an essential part of life

Everyone needs water: plants, animals and of course people too. The average person in a private household consumes about 250 litres of fresh water per day.

This is why hygienic drinking water delivery is crucial for our health and quality of life. With this in mind, Uponor are on hand to supply a safe and reliable plumbing solution for a hygienically flawless supply.

Drinking water systems and hygiene

uponor hygienic drinking water delivery
  • Hygienically clean drinking water delivery is important for all buildings types
  • Builders, property-owners and operators are responsible for drinking water hygiene and for ensuring that their drinking water deliveries meet legal requirements. 

Uponor pipe and Uponor fittings fulfil local standards

These are regulated e.g. in Germany in the guideline VDI/DVGW 6023 "Hygiene in drinking water deliveries. Requirements for planning, execution, operation and maintenance".

The most important points are:
  • Low water content
  • Stagnation-free operation
  • Regular exchange of water in the plumbing water system
In the UK, WRAS approval has been obtained on this range for added peace of mind.
