1. The main reason is that the PVC drain pipe has no pressure, and the PVC drain pipe is mainly used for indoor and outdoor drainage.

2. Water supply pipes are under pressure and can be used as farmland irrigation. PVC drain pipe pressure is generally small.

3. Drainage pipe is used for drainage. It is mainly used for drainage, rainwater, community drainage, etc. on real estate projects. There is no pressure and hygienic index requirement for the pipe itself. The quality of the pipe is mainly related to toughness and stretching.

4. The water supply pipe is used for water supply, and some is used for farmland irrigation. The biggest difference between the water supply pipe and the drainage pipe is that it needs to withstand the pressure. If it is a water supply project, it also needs to have health indicators, non-toxic and pollution-free detection indicators. At present, the market share of PVC water supply pipes is shrinking, and it is replaced by PE pipes with superior quality performance.
