The product which test results are positive acquires a NSF-pw sign. NSF-pw is an indicator that product has permission to be used for sanitary water installation (pw – potable water). Besides that, raw materials for PVC-C and PVC-U pipe and fitting production do not contain lead stabilizers, so they are in compliance with rigorous sanitary norms. The quality of manufactured pipes and fittings is also confirmed by the quality production certificates awarded by the TUV Management Service GMBH from Munich for Lodz based plant (Poland), and BVQI for plants in the US - Goshen, Charlestown and Denmark.
Besides, in order to better understand the materials, NIBCO cooperates with faculties and colleges. However, the best example that testifies the product quality is the fact that NIBCO gives a 50-year warranty on its PVC-C and PVC-U systems.
NIBCO… You are not just buying a (brand) name you are buying a product which reputation guarantees quality, knowledge, 100 years of experience and counting, availability and technical support not just during the purchase but afterwards as well. You’re buying NIBCO.
