Plastic Plumbing

Why use plastic plumbing? Plastic plumbing components offer a wide range of advantages compared to traditional materials such as copper.

Less installation hassle

 

In terms of ease of installation, they make the job easier at every turn with easy cutting; push fit joints and superb flexibility and handling qualities making every installation quicker. Plus, with no welding or soldering required, they make the job safer, too.

 

Less potential for leaks

 

As plastic pipes are usually available in longer lengths than copper, less joints are normally required. Plus, push fit joints can provide equal if not better integrity than traditional ones as well as being far quicker to install.

 

Less chance of theft

 

With copper theft an ever-growing problem on site due to high scrap value, plastic offers a far less tempting prospect for thieves. So even though it’s easy to lift, it’s a lot less likely to get lifted.
