What is the material on water pipes?
water pipes are almost always made of a polymer PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride)... it is a linear polymer with 1-chloro ethene as its repeating unit...
Water pipes are not usually painted black, or any colour for that matter. Pipes are usually in the colour of the material they are made from.
What plumbing pipes? Water or waste? What material is it? Copper? Galvanised? PVC? Brass? What size are the pipes in question?
the pipes were metal and metal rusts when water is on it
Because that was the best material they had at that time.
PEX is best inside houses.
Water pipes are made from many different materials like , iron, galvanised steel, copper and many different plastics. There is a constant search to find a cheap, reliable material to transport water and be easy to use.
It depends on the material of the pipes
Copper is used for cooking pots and water pipes because it is an excellent conductor of heat and is an nonreactive, stable metal that won't corrode.
A plumber installs water pipes.
Well if water is too cold, pipes will contract and if water is too hot, the pipes will expand.
Aqueducts were large water pipes and they were used to bring water to wherever it was needed.
Water pipes should not of themselves crack at any temperature, however if pipes have water in them the water will freeze at temperatures below 0oC. If this happens then as the water freezes it will expand (ice is less dense than water) and as it expands it will either stretch metal pipes until they burst or crack ceramic pipes. For this reason external water pipes are buried at a depth to which the frost will… Read More
if water freezes in pipes it will break the pipes, literally.
Aqueducts are basically water pipes. They move water from a spring or river to a place where it is needed. Aqueducts are basically water pipes.

Because the water expands! Water when it freezes - - expands. Therefore water in pipes will split the pipes; water in a glass will break the glass; water in plastic jugs will disform the jugs.
Copper is used as hot water pipes because the copper will not corrode when the hot water goes through the pipes
It is important to protect water pipes so they don't freeze because when water freezes, it swells. If water is trapped inside the pipes the pressure from it swelling will cause the pipes to burst.
They shake because, the water exerts pressure when running in the pipes
A plumber has put 18 gallons of antifreeze into my water pipes can the antifreeze interact with copper or lead pipes or pipes with lead soddering and cause contamination to the water?
I can't think you are talking drinking water pipes because anitfreeze is poisonous. Nor should you have lead pipes or lead solder in drinking water pipes. So either sleeve pipes or heating pipes then. Antifreeze has inhibitors designed to prevent corrosion.
That was the best material they had.
Ice forms in the pipes. When water freezes it expands a little bit! In water pipes it sometimes expands just enough to split the pipe. The reason why water pipes sometimes burst in winter is because water pipes are full of water and in the winter the air is very cold, sometimes in the UK even 2 or 3 degrees celcius. Because the air is so cold, and the air is surrounding the water pipes… Read More
Singing water pipes can be caused by air that is trapped in the pipes. The air can cause a whistling or singing sound, or it can cause the pipes to knock or rattle.
No, aqueducts were used to carry water. They were big water pipes which carried water to wherever it was needed.
The materials used in aqueducts would depend upon the terrain that the aqueduct crossed. However the piping that actually carried the water was made of a ceramic material. The pipes that led from the aqueduct to the baths, fountains and houses were made of lead. The materials used in aqueducts would depend upon the terrain that the aqueduct crossed.

Why should the water pipes in houses be well insulated so that they are not likely to freeze in winter?
if the water in the pipes freezes, it will expand and break the pipes.
If the pipes are filled with water, they are more likely to crack. The reason for this is because the water expands when frozen, cracking the pipes.
Salt water cause corrosion on most metal pipes.
Water pipes may be covered with foam rubber to stop condensation dripping from the surface of cold water pipes in warm and damp climates, and to insulate hot water pipes so the water in them does not cool while flowing from the hot water tank to the faucet,
There was a time when led was the preferred choice for the construction of water pipes. Nowadays, elements that are used for water pipes include iron, steel, and copper.
Iron replaced lead in water pipes.
Lead free solder for potable water pipes
You don't. Treat water to help with water hardness. If pipes are clogged, replace them.
Water in the pipes turn to ice and it will expand till it breaks. Always let your pipes run a little water at all times when it is cold.
The water inside uninsulated pipes may freeze and expand during a cold winter, pushing opening joints or splitting the pipes, often unnoticed. When the thaw comes, the ice in the pipes melt, and the water pressure returns, and the water is able to spray out through the damaged pipes.
its a steel material used in pipes
Poly vinyl chloride
Clogged drains are caused by the accumulation of sticky material in the water pipes. Many times stuff like hair, food, plastic pouches.. gets stuck in the pipes and starts accumulating. Because of this the water from the kitchen or shower sink takes time to drain. Many times the drain pipes emit foul odor. Once the pipes are blocked, either the water stops draining from the sink or the debris starts coming out of the sink… Read More
What material is used to make whirley mugs used in most hospitals Do they use the same material used in plastic pipes?
No, pipes are made of PVC. Whirley hospital mugs are made from polypropylene.
Copper used to be very common, now many kinds of plastics are used. PEX is one of the most popular.
Calcium is very reactive with water, so the pipes would disintegrate.
If the copper pipes are full and the water is trapped, the pipes will split at the weakest point when exposed to continuous freezing temperatures. A testament to the power of crystallizing water.
If you don't insulate water pipes or protect them in some way from the cold, the water inside the pipes can freeze. This causes you to be without water until the pipes warm up enough to thaw. Also, when the water freezes, it can expand and burst the pipes which will then need to be replaced. Save yourself the aggravation of having no water and the cost of replacing pipes by insulating them. To protect… Read More
Call your city hall or local water company and complain there is air in your water pipes.
Why is the second paragraph a contradiction of the first? If hot water pipes 'Absolutely' do not freeze faster than cold water pipes then why the comment about the cold water pipes having a larger diameter which causes them to freeze at a slower rate than the smaller hot water pipes? Also, the word then in the last line should be than and there should be an a between usually and larger. And, piping should… Read More
If we didn't have water pipes I would be out of a job. Water pipes are needed for delivery of the water to a specific place and that is done using pressure and flow using pumps or gravity. Most residential houses don't have domestic water pipes bigger then 1" in size. Almost all water pipes outside of a building are buried in the ground. Every time you turn on a faucet (if on city water)… Read More
Through pipes through pipes
Sometimes it's caused by air in the pipes.
Yes, the same pipes that supply drinking water to your sink also supply water to your bathtub, toilet, washing machine, exterior spigots, etc.
The half of the water in Singapore is lost by evaporation.So Singaporeans buy pipes from Malaysia to take water from Malaysia through the pipes.
