How to choose correctly?




Easy installation

PVC pipe fittings are light and easy to handle, and they are easy to operate, and their cost is lower than that of metal pipes when installed.



They are not susceptible to corrosion by exposure to water and common household chemicals. Plastic formulations can be adjusted to meet a variety of residential plumbing needs, including water and drainage.


Very few plugs

Drain pipes using PVC pipe fittings are less prone to blockage than metal drain pipes and are easier to unblock.


Low thermal conductivity

Unlike metal, PVC pipe does not conduct heat well, so it can better maintain the temperature of the water it carries. Although the copper tube needs to be insulated to prevent sweating and dripping, it remains dry even without insulation. This is especially useful for condensate drains in air conditioners, boilers and other appliances.



It is possible to connect different metals, such as copper and iron, which can cause corrosion. The plastic tubes can be connected to each other or to the metal tube without risking damage to the chemical reaction.




Low melting point

PVC pipe fittings melt and burn more easily than most metals, and emit toxic gases before they melt. It has a lower melting point than metal, so it can easily melt when a house is on fire, while emitting toxic gases. This can lead to additional hazards, but we must have protective measures, and building codes will have more safety restrictions than metal pipes. Therefore, you don't have to worry about this. We will install it for you when it is as safe as possible.


Thermal expansion/contraction

Although PVC pipe fittings do not transfer heat well, their expansion and contraction depend on the temperature of the surrounding air and the fluid inside them. However, many plumbers will consider this problem and will try to avoid this problem when choosing, so there is no need to worry too much.


Excited by the sun

It may become brittle when exposed to the sun's ultraviolet rays. This can be solved by using latex paint or other protective coatings for pipes that can be used outdoors. So don't worry too much.
