The PVC Pipe Association

Overview

Mission

Our mission is to promote use of longer-life, lower-maintenance, corrosion-proof PVC piping in water and wastewater systems for real sustainability, strength and long-term asset management.

Overview

Founded in 1971 as a non-profit organization, the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association is the authoritative source of information on PVC pipe. It serves the engineering, regulatory, public health and standardization communities.

Introduced in North America in 1951, corrosion-proof PVC piping offers a superior, proven and truly sustainable solution for underground infrastructure, helping municipalities spend smarter and giving taxpayers the best return on their dollar.

Uni-Bell staff provide users with information on the design and application of gasketed-joint PVC pipe. We also produce technical publications and recommend standards recognized throughout the world.

Moreover, research sponsored by Uni-Bell in the areas of buried pipe deflection, durability, ultraviolet aging, direct tapping, cyclic surge performance, etc., has demonstrated PVC's versatility, ease of installation and maintenance, as well as its unsurpassed durability.

The PVC pipe industry contributes in excess of $14 billion annually to the US economy and supports over 25,000 jobs. With over two million miles in service, PVC pipe is the product of choice for buried water, sewer, drainage and irrigation infrastructure.
A Collective Voice for Excellence

The Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association was created in 1971 by a group of forward-looking PVC pipe producers who understood the collective need to service the research, educational, design, service and technical information requirements of the industry.

By joining and supporting the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association, companies confirm their commitment to the quality products and customer service which have made PVC the number one piping material for water and wastewater infrastructure in North America.

Uni-Bell is an important industry stakeholder and contractors and utilities are encouraged to use Uni-Bell-member manufactured PVC pipe products for quality, technical service and installation support for buried water, sewer, force main, reclaimed, drainage and irrigation markets.

We thank members for their participation, as well as the Vinyl Institute for its ongoing financial support in pursuit of sustainable, cost-effective and corrosion-free piping systems.
