It was developed by technical engineers both in the U.S. and abroad to satisfy the growing need for higher quality, above ground irrigation pipe. This pipe is brown in color manufactured to carry portable water. After several years of field testing in the world's hottest deserts, this pipe is unique in its properties.


Listed by the national Sanitary Foundation (NSF) SUNSTOP PVC UVR Plastic Pipe has gone through stringent test by Gas and Mechanical Laboratories in Los Angeles to meet the listing requirements of the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).
