There are no mandated standards or certification for Flexible PVC pipe. That means everyone and his brother has jumped into this line of products. The market is large, the equipment to make it is relatively cheap and there are no regulations. At least no mandatory regulations. So why does this matter to you?
|REASON #1 COST Yes, that's right, cost. There are companies selling non-USA made flexible pvc pipe and they sell it cheaper. However, the cost you have to consider is not just the cost of the pipe or hose, but how much it'll cost you if it fails. How much will it cost you to dig up to replace it or repair a leak? How much will it cost you to flood your backyard, basement or even your house? How much will it cost you in damage or lost livestock? If you buy imported flexible PVC pipe and it fails just once or you lose livestock, the cost will be more than you save by buying imported pipe.||
REASON #2 SAFETY The next reason to by made in the USA flexible pvc pipe is you don't know what the imported pipe is made of. The Flexible pvc pipe we sell has a NSF-51 rating (White only, but the black and gray are the exact same product just different color.) The reason NSF-51 is important is that is requires the pipe to be made of virgin materials and no fillers. Recycling is great, but when it comes to transporting water in a hose made of recycled materials from overseas, you have no idea what recycled materials they use.
Think about this. You know the stories: Toys for children painted with lead based paint; Chemically tainted dog food, peanut butter, or toothpaste. Vegetables carrying hepatitis, salmonella, or shigella. What do all these products have in common? They are all imported. If these foreign companies are so irresponsible with the toys for our children or what we feed ourselves and our pets, then why would anyone believe they would conform to non-mandatory requirements for an unregulated pipe?
|REASON #3 INTEGRITY What if you have damages from imported pipe? How will you recover those damages? Good luck trying to sue some cinder-block warehouse in a remote land thousands of miles away.||REASON #4 JOBS When you buy USA Made Flexible pvc pipe and hose you are supporting your fellow Americans. Jobs that America needs. At some point you will have to decide who you want to send your money to, and the sooner you do, the more US jobs you will save.|
