CertainTeed Expands PVC Sewer Pipe
Responding to the needs of contractors and municipalities, CertainTeed Corporation is expanding its CertaFlo(TM) GreenLine PVC Sewer Pipe line to include larger pipe diameters.
When introduced in 2007, CertaFlo GreenLine offered diameters ranging from 4 to 8 inches. With the product line expansion, CertaFlo will also be available in larger 10- and 12-inch diameters, for use in upsizing overloaded smaller lines and for size-on-size replacement of deteriorated pipelines.
“With rural areas across the country becoming more developed in recent years, many municipalities are replacing older, smaller-diameter sewer and water pipe with pipe of a larger diameter to better serve the growing population,” says Steve Gross, director of Marketing for CertainTeed’s Pipe Business. “We are pleased to provide these new larger pipe diameter options into our CertaFlo GreenLine product line to better serve our customers.”
CertaFlo GreenLine is a high-impact polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe that features CertainTeed’s performance-proven Certa-Lok(TM) Integral Bell restrained joint system. It is available in 10- and 20-foot lengths for ease of use in trenchless applications, such as directional drilling and pipe bursting. The shorter lengths facilitate rapid assembly and allow the use of smaller and more economical construction pit sizes. The pipe’s code-approved light-green color makes camera inspection of sewers easier.
