Application: recycled / reclaimed water
Pipe series: aquatherm lilac pipe SDR7.4/SDR11
Material: fusiolen PP-R
Form supplied: L= 4 m straight lengths (20 - 125mm), L= 5.8 m straight lengths (160 - 250mm)
Reclaimed and recycled water sources, and rainwater catchment systems are being specified and installed much more frequently as building and plumbing codes are updated to allow this as means for improving water conservation. The codes will require that the system be kept entirely separate from the potable water supply, and that the piping be color-coded and labeled to identify it as non-potable.
The water from these sources can be used for:

Pipes and fittings made from fusiolen PP-R are normally not installed where subject to UV-radiation.
All aquatherm PP-R pipes and fittings have UV stabilizer to bridge transport and installation times. Maximum storage time in the open air is 3 months under Australian UV-conditions.
For the application in open air aquatherm offers composite pipes with an UV-protective layer made from black polyethylene, which excludes damages caused by sunlight.
Aquatherm PP-R fittings have to be protected against sunlight by using a black UV-resistant adhesive tape.
Painting the aquatherm PP-R pipes and fittings with an UV resistant epoxy based primer or lagging the aquatherm PP-R pipes and fittings with an UV resistant insulation is sufficient as well to protect the PP-R pipe system from UV damage.
Available types of pipe:
Peeling of the UV layer
When welding UV pipe peel off the UV layer off the aquatherm pipe before fusion.
Push the end of the UV pipe into the guide of the peeling tool. Peel off the UV layer up to the top of the peeling tool. It is not necessary to mark the welding depth as the back stop of the peeling tool indicates the correct welding depth.
Before starting the fusion, check if the UV layer has been completely removed.
