The article discusses the installation of polypropylene-random (PP-R) Aquatherm Greenpipe, an alternative for potable-water piping. It highlights the application of Logan City School District in Utah on Aquatherm greenpipes as it embarked on an expansion of Woodruff Elementary School. Randy Godfrey, owner of Carson Mechanical, estimated that the utilization of PP-R saved the school district about 8,000 dollars than using copper, and added that it has a natural insulation value of R-1 insulation.
