The NSF / ANSI 14 certification is an important step forward for the growing aquatechnik North America distribution network, which is now able to market the certified product. Testing is under way for NSF / ANSI 61 covering “drinking water system components;” aquatechnik certification for that standard is expected in the next month.
All major plumbing codes are now requiring that plastic piping products comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 14. The International Plumbing Code, International Residential Code and National Standard Plumbing Code have required compliance with NSF/ANSI Standard 14 for many years, and now the Uniform Plumbing Code also requires NSF/ANSI 14 compliance for plastic pipe and fittings, raising the bar on quality for plastic piping products throughout North America.
