Solar water heating manufacturer FAFCO says it has become the first and only U.S. manufacturer to receive the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) certification for a complete solar water heating system. FAFCO also has a separate IAPMO approval specifically for its solar thermal collector.
IAPMO is accredited by American National Standards Institute and Standards Council of Canada. IAPMO Research and Testing Marks of Conformity are widely recognized and represent the highest degree of integrity in showing compliance with established codes and standards, the company says.
‘This is a huge accomplishment as well as a significant milestone for FAFCO,’ states Robert Leckinger, president of FAFCO Inc. ‘The IAPMO certification sets FAFCO's solar water heating systems miles apart from its competitors.’
FAFCO solar water heating systems were tested by an IAPMO Research and Testing recognized laboratory and were verified to meet Uniform Code. This recognition has been granted based upon the laboratory's compliance to the applicable requirements of ISO/IEC 17025.
