Switch To Plastic Piping

There was a period when lead pipes were the preferred plumbing material. Those days, though, are no longer. Other materials, such as copper, iron, and bronze, have been used as alternatives over time. However, none of them have been as good as plastic. read full article
Metal pipes had threads in the fittings (elbow, tee, etc.), whereas plastic does not and is therefore more flexible. Unlike metal pipes, which leak as the threads wear out, plastic pipes are virtually leak-free. You are free not only from thinking about your water bill, but also from the pollution of your water supply. Unlike metal pipes, which include the use of a pipe wrench, installing plastic pipes is a breeze. Simply add the solvent and bind the links. Unlike, say, copper piping, you can build it yourself and save money on hiring a professional.
Since we all know that metal corrodes, plastic pipes will outlast metal pipes and even copper pipes in terms of longevity. According to studies, plastic can last more than 25 years, and in some cases up to a hundred or more.
Plastic pipes are very environmentally friendly because they can be recycled.
There are various forms of plastic that are used for piping on the market today. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), a dense plastic, is one. It is available in two different colours: blue for cold water piping and orange for waste and sewerage. Then there’s its white-colored cousin, Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC), which is used for hot water distribution. Thread, also known as solvent weld, is a form of glue used to connect pipe fittings. Heat can also be used to seal joints.
