Aquatherm is a world-wide producer of polypropylene (PP-R) pipe systems for the potable water and heating sector.
Aquatherm was founded in 1973 in Germany as a company for the development, production and installation of warm water floor heating systems. Then, Aquatherm was one of the first three suppliers of floor heating systems on the European market.

In 1980 Aquatherm developed the fusiotherm® polypropylene (PP-R) pipe system for potable water and heating installations.

Aquatherm is the largest selling PP-R pressure pipe system in the world market. Each year well over 48,000 km of pipe and 94 million fittings are produced, stored and dispatched all over the world.

Our product range has expanded beyond water services into mechanical and civil services, such as compressed air, recycled, large bore HVAC systems (up to 630mm) and sprinkler pipe systems. Special grid systems for comfort heating and cooling have now been introduced in residential and commercial constructions sectors.





Established in Australia in 1949, Reliance has grown to become a world leader in water control, measurement, infrastructure, products and services, supplying hot water systems to manufacturers, plumbing distributors, government bodies, and other major industries. Our Australian-based NATA accredited laboratory certifies final products prior to production and conducts ongoing performance and destructive testing.
