Wall Penetration

Building codes require that a fire-rated wall or floor must be sealed back to its original integrity when penetrated. Several sealants and materials are suitable for use with GF Harvel HydroKing® pipe to construct an appropriate UL Classified penetration system (fire-rated penetration system). When installed properly, these systems will provide a two-hour fire rating. Consult local building code requirements. CAUTION: Certain fire-stopping sealants and components contain stress cracking agents and other chemicals which may cause damage to CPVC piping; contact the appropriate manufacturer for compatibility with CPVC piping prior to use.

Note: When installing CPVC piping in areas where the system must be drained to protect it from freezing, the lines must be sloped to drain.
