Home Improvement Water Pipes And PPR Water Pipe Specifications

Among the types of water pipes currently on the market, PPR pipes are the mainstream product in home decoration. What should I know about home PPR water pipes? IFAN takes you to understand home improvement water pipes and PPR water pipe specifications.

Advantages Of PPR Pipe

In-home decoration, hot water pipes are uniformly used for water pipes that are mixed with hot and cold water. After the PPR hot water pipe is thickened, it can ensure stability and is not easy to be damaged in the exchange of cold and heat. In addition, the biggest advantage of PPR pipe is that its pipe and pipe fittings are connected together after hot melting, which is very firm. This kind of pipe is buried directly in the ground or in the wall, and there is almost no risk in the later stage.

Reasons For The Elimination Of Aluminum-plastic Pipes

The quality of the truly qualified aluminum-plastic pipe is good, but there may be some problems with the material and the corresponding connecting parts, such as cracks when bending, or the joint leaking. When the aluminum-plastic pipe is connected with the metal joint, the pressure The tight method is simple to operate, but not reliable. It is easy to loosen when the hot and cold water is exchanged for a long time, and the copper interface is easy to leak. For these reasons, aluminum-plastic pipes are no longer popular and are replaced by PPR pipes.
