Advanced drainage systems come in many different shapes and forms. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to installing a drainage system. One thing that needs to be considered carefully is the material of the pipes used. In this post, we are going to look at HDPE and the benefits of such pipes.
HDPE stands for High Density Polyethylene Pipe. There are outstanding performance and physical benefits associated with this material, making it the perfect choice for drainage solutions. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits in further detail. HDPE is eco-friendly when compared with other non-plastic pipes. It is also lightweight, making it easier and more cost effective to transport. Fewer fittings are required, and you can experience leak-free connections because heat fusion is used to join HDPE pipes. You don’t have to worry about potentially hazardous toxins being emitted during production either. You benefit from an adaptable solution when you choose this material, as there is a wide range of fittings available, and you can use mechanical or stab fittings. If that wasn’t enough, you are benefitting from a durable and safe product, ensuring a long service life, with your pipes lasting anything from 50 to 100 years. Of course, this all depends on installation, design and application. HDPE is also resistant to fatigue. Unlike other types of plastic, it has been designed to handle recurring and occasional surge events that are common with water distribution systems. Moreover, you won’t experience any issues with corrosion, as is the case with metal piping.
