Different Plumbing Pipes To Choose From

No matter if you have a residential project or a commercial project in hand, there are different types of pipes that can be utilized for the purpose of plumbing. Normally PVC, Copper, and PEX pipes are used on the basis of their purpose of application as well as their location.

Following are some of the applications of different plumbing pipes available in the market

Stainless Steel Pipes

Stainless steel is gaining utmost popularity and importance these days owing to its variety of benefits like durability, hygiene, less maintenance, high level of corrosion- resistance, and sustainability. Stainless steel is best suited for coastal areas where the risk of corrosion is higher. Do not confuse stainless steel plumbing pipes with galvanized ones. Rhinox manufactures stainless steel pipes and fittings using the finest grade 316 L which makes it a perfect choice for plumbing applications. SS press fittings are known for making the plumbing job easier and making it leak-proof and hassle-free.

PEX Pipes

PEX pipes are referred to as flexible plastic piping that is gaining popularity in small business applications and residential projects. The cost of PEX pipes is slightly higher. As compared to copper piping, PEX pipes help in providing leak-proof piping connections. One of the key disadvantages of these pipes is that they cannot be utilized in outer spaces as they can get damaged due to UV rays.

Copper Pipes

Copper pipes are one of the eldest and most traditional pipes that people use. Copper pipes can be managed easily. One thing that needed to be taken care of while using copper pipes is that these might be required to be soldered together and there might be a need for additional fittings as well. As not everyone is trained to solder pipes and hence you need to hire trained personnel which might lead to increase in your expenses.

PVC Pipes

PVC plumbing pipes are referred to as pipes that are utilized in sewage applications as well as hot and cold potable water. On the basis of the purpose of the application, different types of PVC pipes can be selected as these come in different thicknesses. For instance, sewer pipes are not similar to pressure water pipes and cannot be utilized in storm drainage systems.

Galvanized Pipes

Many years ago, galvanized pipes were used especially in residential projects. Due to the building up of rust, the usage of these pipes started getting lower down. If your pipes are old enough, you can notice rust coming out of your taps along with the water that is highly dangerous for health upon consumption. Still galvanized pipes can be used for non-potable water.
