When choosing pipe fittings for your drains, both corrugated plastic and PVC can be effective at carrying water and waste away from a structure. But corrugated pipes offer some additional advantages and peace of mind that PVC simply does not. Below, a few of these benefits are discussed in more detail.
Why You Should Choose Corrugated Pipe Fittings Over PVC
1. Long Lifespan
Corrugated plastic may be lightweight, but it’s exceptionally durable and built to last for the long haul. Wear and tear on the inside wall of corrugated pipe fittings is minimal, and the plastic is extremely resistant to acids, chemicals, and other potentially corrosive substances. Corrugated plastic pipes have tight joints that provide a solid barrier, preventing holes and leaks.
2. Easy Installation
When compared to PVC installation, corrugated plastic is a much less labor-intensive process. Because it’s so light, corrugated plastic is easy to handle and transport. Even in confined spaces, these pipes are installed with minimal stress and manpower. Also, no heavy-duty machinery or equipment is needed to haul or install corrugated plastic.
3. Light Environmental Impact
Corrugated plastic is manufactured with less consumption of raw materials than PVC. It’s also recyclable once the pipes have reached the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced. Additionally, corrugated pipes don’t release toxins into the environment during production or when they’re installed for private use.
