Charlotte Pipe and Foundry Co.
Charlotte Pipe and Foundry Company’s RePVC (polyvinyl chloride) and ReUze are now certified by NSF International, an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to protecting and improving public health and the environment. Both piping systems were inspired by the green and sustainability industries.

According to Charlotte Pipe, there are three sources of non-potable water: rainwater, gray water and municipally supplied reclaimed water. Non-potable water systems are great for applications that do not require water, which have been treated to drinking water standards.

NSF International’s certification for water piping systems verifies that the products meet all applicable requirements by conducting thorough testing and facility inspections. This includes three unannounced inspections annually, formulation and manufacturing process reviews and testing of product samples.

ReUze, a purple CPVC piping system for distributing non-potable water inside the building, is directly aimed at increasing water efficiency. The line pipes are purple to differentiate non-potable water from potable water. Non-potable water can be used to save building owners money, relieve stress on already over burdened public agencies, and preserve a precious resource in applications such as toilet and urinal flushing and process water.
