Lower cost, proven long term durability and resistance to corrosion make PVC pipes the ideal pipeline solution for water transfer.
Economic benefits of PVC Pipes
When installation, low breakage rates and life cycle costs are taken into consideration, PVC pipes offer significant cost savings for projects. Recent studies have proven that projects can save 30% on installation time when using a PVC sewer pipe system.
Pipe blockages are a major concern for any engineer, with each pipe blockage meaning significant maintenance and repair costs. Slower water flow through pipelines can potentially create more blockages and failures in a project with many connections. The extremely smooth lining of PVC pipe – when compared to a copper, clay or concrete pipe – increase the speed of water transfer through the pipeline and make it extremely difficult for sediment to accumulate. Bacteria and other particles have virtually no chance to attach themselves to the inner walls – a major advantage as accumulations on the pipe walls can result in diminished life expectancy, costly maintenance and inconvenient repairs.
The longevity of PVC pipes also means the pipes function more efficiently, reducing maintenance and ongoing work to the pipe making it more affordable over time.
