Greenville Water recently adopted a rule that PEX and HDPE pipe must be installed with a tracer wire attached by the manufacturer.  Tracer wire attached by anyone other than the manufacturer will not be accepted.

In addition, Greenville Water has announced that repairs to PEX or HDPE pipe may not be made with “SharkBite” push-to-connect fittings.  Repairs may only be made using compression fitting as specified by Greenville Water’s Standard Specifications, which can be found at
