1 - Reliable, a time proven material
Copper pipework is safe, durable and reliable, giving homeowners peace of mind.
Copper is the only currently used plumbing material which has reliably conveyed water for thousands of years. Its first known use dates back as far as 2750 BC in the Temple at Abusir in Egypt. Evidence of Roman copper plumbing systems can still be seen at Pompeii and Herculaneum, cities destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.
In the 20th Century, copper became the first choice for plumbing and heating installations, setting very high standards which competing materials can only try to reach. The reliability of copper has been proven over many decades by the millions of European homes plumbed with copper. Copper has therefore rightly earned its reputation as the best pipework material.
Copper has passed the test of time and remains the favoured material for pipework installations in modern homes. This proven performance demonstrates that copper has a pedigree unsurpassed by any other pipework material.
