What Do You Need To Install CPVC Piping In Your Home?


CPVC (Chlorinated Poly Vinyl Chloride) pipe is a type of plastic pipe that can be used for water supply lines inside your home, as opposed to PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) pipe, which is only suitable for drainage. This type of pipe has many advantages over galvanized steel or copper pipe. The material itself is less expensive and installation is less labor intensive than either of the metallic options. CPVC pipe will not rust or corrode from age or exposure to harsh contaminants in the local water supply, and can connect easily to existing galvanized or copper lines through the use of conversion fittings that are specially designed for that use. Best of all, installation of CPVC piping involves the use of a type of adhesive cement for connections, eliminating the need for soldering as with copper pipe or wrestling with heavy galvanized pipe to make threaded connections.
