Flo-Tek Flowguard CPVC Installation

Installating the Flo-Tek Flowguard CPVC system is as easy as 1 2 3! It is so easy to install, thus saving contractors and plumbers time on site.


  1. A Pipe Cutter
  2. A Chamfering Tool
  3. CPVC Solvent Cement

The main degradation process is dehydrochlorination, not oxidation. This dehydrochlorination, whilst slightly accelerated by U.V., does not break down the polymer chains to any significant extent after outdoor exposure, being mainly limited to a surface discolouration effect.

However, for extra protection for CPVC pipes which are directly installed under harsh sunlight conditions, Flo-Tek recommends protecting all pipes and fittings installed outdoors to prevent any kind of mechanical damage to the system.


  • Cut the pipe squarely using a wheel-type plastic tube cutter.
  • Use a chamfering tool or file to remove burrs and filings from the inside and outside of the pipe.
  • Wipe any dirt or moisture from the fitting sockets and piping end.



  • Apply a heavy, even coat of cement on the pipe end.
  • Apply a thin coat inside the fitting socket.



  • Immediately insert the pipe into the fitting socket.
  • Rotate the pipe a quarter turn while inserting and hold for 30 seconds.
  • Fast and Easy installation on site, no need for expensive tools or electricity to run a fusion welding machine, just a wheel pipe cutter and the correct yellow Flo-Tek CPVC solvent cement.
  • Cost effective, CPVC has proven to be a cost-effective piping system when compared to Copper.
  • No theft on site, CPVC as a plastic piping system reduced the theft of piping systems on site.
  • High Chlorine resistance in hot water, when compared to metallic piping like Copper or G.I., as well compared to PP-R and PEX piping systems, CPVC is unaffected by the chlorine present in potable water supply.
