Climatherm connects via heat fusion, which turns the pipe and fitting into a single material, creating connections that last a lifetime and eliminate toxic materials, glues and resins and open flames from piping installations. Made from more than 98.5% pure PP-R, Climatherm (available in 3/8-inch to 12 inches) has an R-value of 1.A faser-composite layer that reduces linear expansion of the pipe by up to 75% compared to plastic piping, ensuring it hangs rigidly even in operating temperatures up to 200 degrees F.

Simply screw into the drain line and the water supply connects to the inlet. If the drain temperature is above the specified setpoint, the DTV-R valve allows cold water to spray into the drain until the drain temperature falls a few degrees, at which point the DTV-R valve automatically shuts off the cold water flow, resulting in a minimum amount of wasted water while still complying with the plumbing code.
