This Installer Protection Plan does NOT cover:


• Pipe that has been allowed to freeze by homeowner or contractor.
• “Acts of God”, i.e., tornadoes, earthquakes, landslides, etc.
• Poor workmanship and installation errors.

Spears® laboratory testing has shown these products to be compatible with satisfactory performance in normal installation of CPVC products. However, the potential for compatibility problems can be present in installations where CPVC materials are highly stressed. Such situations include, but are not limited to, inadequate compensation for thermal expansion and contraction, excessive bending beyond specified limits, improper pipe hanger or anchor selection or installation, over tightening of threaded joints, and other improper CPVC installation practices yielding high stress loads. Proper installation of each product in accordance with the manufacturer’s published Installation Instructions, Spears® FlameGuard® CPVC Fire Sprinkler Products Installation Instructions, EverTUFF® CTS Design and Installation Manual, Marine CPVC Installation Instruction and LabWaste® CPVC Corrosive Waste Drainage System Installation Instructions is essential. PLEASE NOTE: Not all products listed are suitable for all applications. Check product requirements.
