Topic: GI Pipes or PVC PP- pipes for home plumbing

Kindly advice me which pipe  is good for home plumbing GI(Jindal) or Plastic pipes (Indo Green PP-R hot & cold water from Supreme Co.).

I read about the PP-R plastic pipes co. claim its life is more than  50 years and GI pipe life is only 20-30 years.

Kindly advice me which pipe should I use.

Regards,

Narender

Dear  Narender,

UPVC pipes are being increasingly used now days because of a number of advantages such as light in weight yet strong, easy to transport, good flow, corrosion resistant, unaffected by fungi or bacteria and resistant to wide range of chemicals etc.

G.I. pipe hold good in lying in open i.e. on the surface of wall or floor where as UPVC pipes need special care at the time of laying the pipe line to save it from breakage and not hold good in open. UPVC pipes are good for water temperature ranging from 1 to 45 degree centigrade, at higher temperature; the strength of pipes reduces where as G.I. pipes hold well on all temperature. 

Regards
S.L.Gupta
