- Construction from a compound that is NSF-61 certified for drinking water applications.
- Sizes ranging from 1/4 through 1-1/4 inches (outer dia.).
- Compatibility with push-to-connect fittings, such as the company’s Newloc® style, but the flexibility to additionally be joined by welding.
- Optional non-stock sizes, color additives and thermoforming.
