A brief article about waterproofing as told by a top contractor in Chicago
When it comes to waterproofing, the do-it-yourself way to get new or add-on water supply plumbing for your house is with CPVC and PB piping. Both of these hot and cold water supply materials are thermoplastics. Geova CPVC is vinyl, a rigid heat version of PVC. Genova PB is heat resistant, but it is flexible rather than rigid.
Genogrip fittings, in turn, are designed to be solvent welded on one end into a CPVC system, making the two rigid materials completely compatible. You can go from CPVC to PB and back again as often as desired.
Genova's waterproofing welding system features low cost CPVC fittings that join CPVC tubing into one integral system using solvent cement. Flexible PB also may be used in the Genova solvent welding system. However, it cannot be solvent welded to work efficiently as a waterproofing agent.
