IAPMO R&T Certifies Gray Water Systems


IAPMO R&T, North America’s premier plumbing and mechanical product certification agency, is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to provide certification services to the manufacturers of plumbing products associated with Gray Water Systems.

Gray Water is wastewater generated from everyday household activities, such as dish washing, laundry and bathing. Chapter 16 of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC©) governs the installation, alteration and maintenance of Gray Water systems within residential settings. IAPMO R&T certifies the products incorporated into such systems to the provisions of this chapter, as well as the applicable standards.

In some instances, when a product is not clearly governed by the UPC, IAPMO Standards can develop a specific standard known as an IAPMO Guide Criteria (IGC). One such instance is IGC 207, developed on behalf of Louisville, Ky.,-based Water Saver Technologies for its Aqus WS-06000, a storage, filtration and delivery system that captures gray water from the sink for reuse in flushing an adjacent toilet.

“The IGC was the first important step in our journey to receiving a full product listing earlier this year,” said Mark Sanders, inventor of the Aqus and founder of Water Saver Technologies. “The IGC enables us to back up a product we stand firmly behind with third-party affirmation and proof of compliance to the highest standards of the UPC.”

Since 1936, Authorities Having Jurisdiction have trusted IAPMO R&T to certify plumbing products that meet the required standards.

IAPMO R&T certifies and lists electrical, plumbing and mechanical products according to established US and Canadian codes and standards, ensuring continuous compliance to such documents. IAPMO R&T is part of The IAPMO Group’s family of companies.
