Why we choose uPVC plumbing for all of our products:
Simply put: uPVC is superior in quality, performance and durability in all aspects in aquarium use. White PVC (SCH40) that you can buy from a home improvement store has “Plasticizers” added to it making it softer which can lead to lower durability as compared to Unplasticized PVC (uPVC). Not having plasticizers added to uPVC makes it much more rigid, stronger, incredibly resistant to chemical erosion and in our case with aquarium use, its superior non-corrosion properties make it the best choice for true professional results. Whether in construction, personal , residential or industrial use, uPVC is superior in performance and application as compared to PVC.
