"The durability and ease of use of MUNICIPEX reclaim were the biggest selling points for me. If you bend copper and PVC a certain way, it won’t go back. This is not the case with MUNICIPEX because you can bend the pipe in different ways and still bend it back, if needed. The pipe maintains its integrity, and you know you've installed durable pipe.” -  Chad Wilbanks, Strategic Director of Training and Technology at The Water Tower.
