Plastic Pressure Pipe Systems

These have many advantages to offer to the designer, installer and end user of pipe systems; they are light weight, easier to install than metal piping systems, faster to install as well as being more cost effective than metal piping systems. They are used for both above and below ground applications. A well installed and well maintained Plastic Pressure Pipe System could have a life cycle of up to 50 years. This is dependent upon the medium, temperature, chemical consistency, pressure and type of plastic pressure pipe system selected. Plastic Pressure Pipe Systems have been in use since the 1950s. In addition to the fittings, valves, and accessories that comprise a pipe system, the pipes themselves vary in size and composition, depending on the application.
