When was PVC pipe first used for plumbing?
Polyethylene and polybutylene are two common types of flexible tubing used in plumbing, and both are used in hot and cold water supplies in place of traditional copper lines.
I think it stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride.
NO !!!! Must be Galvanized pipe with threaded fittings or Copper piping with flare fittings. If there ever was a fire, the PVC pipe would burn & burst allowing the propane gas… to flow out and explode !!
No, do not use glue. Use teflon tape or pipe dope on the threads. You should also make sure you always put the male PVC thread into the female metal thread. If you do it the o…ther way you will tend to split the PVC fitting when you tighten the threads.
It is used for some fire suppression system sprinkler pipes. I have only seen that once though and it was an apartment complex. I think anything beyond residential is do…ne with iron pipe.
In the last few decades, most plumbing in the UK has been installed with copper pipes. The word 'plumbing' comes from the Latin 'plumbum', meaning lead, which is what the Roma…ns used for plumbing.
No you shouldn't. It will fail inspection. Use electrical (grey) conduit. It is about the same price and has the proper electrical insulating properties required. The th…icker PVC(schedule 40) is best, although schedule 80 is acceptable. (Schedule 40 is required for underground service feeders.)
Copper pipes are now most commonly used in plumbing. Lead pipes were used long ago, and the word plumbing is derived from the Latin word for lead (plumbum). Iron pipes were us…ed until relatively inexpensive copper pipes became readily available during the twentieth century.
No, certainly not. PVC pipes can only take a certain tempreature and in most cases cannot withstand tempreatures above 60 degrees celcius. if a thermostat fails in a geyser an…d the hot water over boils and you run water through your PVC pipes, they can melt causing severe damage. the best pipes to use are copper and galvanised depending where you live.
it has many uses such as drain lines, hot and cold water in residential and commercial buildings. there are also numerous applications in the industrial field as well.pv…c and cpvc pipe can handle many different types of corrosive and acidic substances but has limits on high temps.
Because it lasts and is very versatile and can be used for a variety of plumbing applications with amazing results
Yes, you can physically, but I'm sure by-laws may forbid it in some areas.
Clear PVC pipes are typically used in bathrooms and toilets so that blockages can be found easier. The PVC material also offers exceptional corrosion resistance and has a smoo…th interior wall to promote unimpeded flow.
