  Municipal pipeline manufacturersSaid that the waterway renovation is the top priority of home decoration, just like human nerves and blood, giving life to the new house. Modern water pipes are built with buried walls. If the water pipe leaks and bursts, it will bring irreparable consequences. Choose a good quality water pipe to prevent water leakage from bursting. If you have this demand, you may as well go with me to learn about the municipal pipeline. Municipal pipeline manufacturers teach you four ways to distinguish between good and bad municipal pipelines.

1. Type of polyethylene water supply pipe

Municipal pipes can be divided into UPVC (rigid polyvinyl chloride), PPR (random copolymer polypropylene), PE-RT (heat-resistant polyethylene) and other categories according to the material, each with advantages and disadvantages and scope of application.

Municipal pipelines can be divided into water supply pipes, drainage pipes and floor heating pipes according to their uses. Water supply pipes require environmentally friendly and non-toxic pipes, which meet the requirements of human health; sewage pipes have lower requirements for pipes, but higher requirements for the length and diameter of the pipes. Floor heating pipe requirements pipe can withstand high temperature and high pressure, no deformation, no leakage.

2. Specification of polyethylene water supply pipe

Municipal pipelines have different specifications according to different uses. Three common sizes of PE water supply pipes are listed below.

The length of a single municipal pipeline is 4m or 6m, and other sizes need to be customized. Compared with length specifications, the outer diameter and wall thickness specifications of municipal pipelines are more abundant. PE-RT pipes are mainly used as floor heating pipes, so their outer diameter, wall thickness, size and specifications are small. UPVC is mainly used as drainage pipe, with large size and many choices. PPR has a wide range of applications, so the specifications of pipe outer diameter and wall thickness are relatively concentrated, and even a common name is derived, such as D25 * 3.5. A pipe with an outer diameter of 25mm and a wall thickness of 3.5mm is called 6 pipe.

3. Municipal pipeline price

Different materials of municipal pipeline raw materials and production processes are different, the price of course will be very different.

The total cost of municipal pipeline materials refers not only to the price of the pipe itself, but also to factors such as pipe fittings, connecting tools, installation time costs, pipe loss rate, and maintenance cycle of installation reliability. Therefore, consumers should compare according to the above comprehensive indicators.

4. Look at the appearance

When purchasing municipal pipes, first look at whether the color and gloss are uniform, and whether the outer wall of the pipe is marked with trademark, specification, temperature, pressure, production batch number, production date and actual place of origin. Second, see if there is a health permit. Water pipes without a sanitary permit cannot be used for drinking water pipes.

5. Smell the smell

Municipal pipes are made of plastic raw materials extruded by an extruder, most of which are non-toxic and tasteless. Unscrupulous businesses in order to save costs or their own technology is not up to standard, will add recycled toxic plastics in the pipeline. When consumers buy, they can smell the water pipe with their nose to see if there is any irritating smell.

6. Test performance

Good plastic pipes can be easily bent without breaking, PPR pipes can even be bent into a round shape, while inferior plastic pipes are brittle and will break when bent. Consumers can also take a small sample of municipal pipe and soak it in hot water. The PE water supply pipe will still maintain the original hardness, and the inferior water supply pipe will soften at about 60 degrees.

7. seriously identify

Municipal pipeline manufacturers said that when buying, you should pay attention to the regular agency of the authorized pipeline dealership in order to enjoy better installation services. Second, pay attention to whether the purchased pipes and fittings are produced by the same manufacturer. The expansion coefficient of products from different manufacturers is different, and the risk of water leakage increases after long-term use. Third, pay attention to obtaining product service cards. Most plumbing manufacturers will have a 50-year warranty.
