Viega LLC launched its “Do the Math” campaign at, a new website that shows users how much they can save by using Viega ProPress systems.  

The engaging, interactive website features testimonials, job comparisons, project profiles and a specially programmed calculator for contractors to actually do the math for projects to see how Viega ProPress compares to other pipe joining methods.

“Everybody knows that Viega press fittings save installation time, but now we’ve provided contractors with an easy-to-use calculator to prove how Viega ProPress fittings can actually save money,” explained Adina Barnes, director of marketing, Viega. “The calculator takes into consideration all the expenses for a project, including the cost of consumables such as flux and solder.”

Viega ProPress systems, the original press pipe joining solution, can reduce installation time up to 60 percent. Installers can make a secure connection in less than seven seconds on sizes ½ inch to 4 inches for copper and stainless and from ½ inch to 2 inches on black iron pipe with Viega MegaPress. Viega offers its patented Viega Smart Connect feature to help installers easily identify unpressed connections. The Viega Smart Connect feature is the only guaranteed method in the industry to identify a fitting that has not been pressed.

Installations with Viega ProPress systems are cleaner, safer and offer less downtime.  

“Numbers don’t lie. We encourage contractors to find out for themselves at,” Barnes added. “It only makes sense to reduce your costs and improve your profitability.”

Contractors are encouraged to calculate their projects at
