PVC Pipe Price
One of the reasons why PVC pipes are widely used for water pipes is that they are not too expensive compared to metal or iron pipes. Meanwhile, iron pipes such as cast iron of the same size cost much more than PVC pipes.
It’s Easy to Carry and Install
Due to its lightweight, the transportation (shipping) process and the installation of PVC pipes have become easier. For installation, PVC pipes can be connected using special glue or special connections which are easier than installing or installing on iron pipes. Even so, you have to be more careful. Due to the fragile nature of the material, damage may occur during shipping or installation if not done carefully.
Free from Chemical Contamination and Rust
The use of iron pipes as drains is not recommended because corrosion or rust can occur due to exposure to rainwater and sunlight. In addition, iron pipes can also cause water contamination because they can react to water. Unlike the PVC pipe which will not react when exposed to water so it is safe to use as a water channel, especially for drinking water.
Those were some of the reasons why PVC pipes are the right choice for use as plumbing at home. But what you have to remember, even though you have applied the tips for installing hot water pipes for the best results, you should not use PVC pipes for hot water. Because there are other types of pipes that are more appropriate for hot water use because they are safer and stronger.
