Plastic Pipe in Plumbing and Heating.

Plastic pipe in plumbing and heating system.

Polypipe is a manufacturer of plastic piping systems, for use in the residential, commercial, civils and infrastructure sectors. The piping systems are used for a variety of applications including drainage, plumbing, water supply, water management, cable management, heating and ventilation. Plumbers and heating engineers use plastic pipe because it is quick and flexible to use. Heating engineers use plastic pipe in underfloor heating system. This is because plastic pipe is resistant to cement, durable and you can run long lengths without the need to join it. Plastic pipe can be a problem if rodents are present. Rodents have no problems chewing through plastic pipe. Copper pipe would be a good alternative in this situation. The continual rise of copper price, means that more and more plumbing and heating engineers are turning to plastic alternatives. When covering plastic pipe in the ground plumbers will use a marker tape with a wire in it. This allows detection of the pipe for future maintenance. Plumber and heating engineers will only start using plastic pipe, one meter from a heat source i.e. boilers and hot water cylinders. Underground gas pipes can be run in plastic, but above ground gas pipes are run in copper, iron or steel. You can use a flexible metal pipe for gas. This is used mainly in wooden structures. All our our suppliers are based in the Hornchurch, Romford, Upminster, Rainham, Dagenham and Brentwood areas. This stops any delays in obtaining plumbing and heating materials at short notice.i.e emergencies.
