Drinking water is 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 a hygienic drinking water delivery is crucial for our health and our quality of life. The supply infrastructure is often in a poor condition and needs to be updated. Uponor offers safe and reliable solutions for ensuring a hygienically flawless supply in a building.
