VI Is Showcasing Safe, Strong, Dependable PVC Pipe at this Year's Greenbuild Expo

Sep 2016

The Vinyl Institute is at Greenbuild this week showcasing how PVC contributes to safe, strong, and dependable pipes for use in the nation’s water infrastructure.

Greenbuild, in Los Angeles, is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, bringing together industry leaders, experts, and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work.

California has a water crisis.

California loses a lot of water annually. According to a study by Water Systems Optimization and funded by the Water Research Foundation, California water losses from distribution leaks amount to 153 billion gallons per year. The resulting financial loss to the state is estimated to be $221 million annually.

PVC pipe can help.

PVC pipe can contribute to water conservation and save municipalities and the state government money in California and across the nation:

  • PVC pipe is safe: Vinyl can be trusted to help keep our water clean because it resists corrosion and has been well tested and evaluated for more than 60 years.
  • PVC pipe is strong: Vinyl is resistant to leaks and breaks, making it an ideal choice for quality water infrastructure.
  • PVC pipe is dependable: Proven to be durable and long-lasting, vinyl is a key material for water transportation and delivery.

The need to protect our nation’s water is critical—both in terms of quality and supply. Vinyl is a winning choice for water infrastructure because it’s durable and long-lasting. It’s also backed by more than sixty years of evaluation and approval by federal and independent agencies alike.
