TekTube USA Earns NSF International Certification for its Ultra Flex™ Flexible PVC pipe and its NEU-GEN™ Flexible pipe products

Certification to NSF/ANSI 50 demonstrates compliance to nationally-recognized health and performance standards for pool and spa products.

Denton, TX – TekTube USA has earned certification to NSF/ANSI 50, the American National Standard for swimming pools, spas, hot tubs and other recreational water facilities, for its Ultra Flex™ flexible PVC pipe and its NEU-GEN™ flexible pipe products constructed of PVC from global public health organization NSF International.

NSF International led the development of NSF/ANSI 50, the American National Standard for recreational water products and chemicals used in the construction, repair, operation, and treatment of swimming pools and spas. Today, government agencies around the world utilize NSF International standards to verify the safety and performance of treatment chemicals, pipes and plumbing components, main drains, and other aquatic facility products.

To earn NSF/ANSI 50 certification, TekTube USA’s Ultra Flex™ flexible PVC pipe and its NEU-GEN™ flexible pipe products were subjected to rigorous testing and evaluation to verify the product met requirements for use in pool and spa applications. NSF International also audited TekTube USA’s manufacturing facility to verify compliance.

TekTube USA’s Ultra Flex™ flexible PVC pipe and its NEU-GEN™ flexible pipe products and related marketing materials can now bear the NSF/ANSI 50 mark and are listed on NSF International’s website. NSF International works closely with state, local and national regulatory authorities with whom the NSF mark is widely accepted, especially in the United States and Canada.

“We here at TekTube USA are both enthused and humbled to earn NSF/ANSI 50 certification for our Ultra Flex™ flexible PVC pipe and our NEU-GEN™ flexible pipe products. Our enduring attention to quality and detail, our use of high technology manufacturing and testing equipment and our commitment to use only the best materials has combined to secure this prestigious certification. We are pleased to take our place among those manufacturers who can claim this certification.” – Harry Klaus/TekTube USA

“By achieving NSF certification to NSF/ANSI 50 for its flexible pipe products, TekTube USA has proven its commitment to public health and safety,” said David Nance, Business Unit Manager of NSF International’s Municipal and Recreational Water Products programs. “NSF International certification verifies that their ½” to 2-1/2” Ultra Flex™ and NEU-GEN™ products meet important health and performance requirements aimed at swimmer and bather safety.”
