Water pipes are an important part in every building starting from housing, industry, buildings, and infrastructure.
because they function to drain water from one point to another and as a drain for liquid waste. Therefore, selecting the right and quality water pipes is an important part of the development process. The use of quality water pipes will make the water pipes durable, avoid dismantling if there is a leak or damage, and simplify the maintenance process.
The following are some tips for choosing the right water pipe:
Determine Pipe Installation NeedsThe choice of pipe must be adjusted to the needs of the pipe installation because each pipe has its function. To distribute clean pressurized water, you can use PVC and HDPE pipes, while for sewer and dirty water you can use PVC pipes, and for distributing pressurized hot water you can use PP-R pipes.
Determine Pipe SpecificationsIf you already know your pipe requirements, continue with determining the suitable pipe specifications. Know the flow rate from your pipe installation (to get the diameter (OD)), and also the water flow pressure (to determine which type of pipe to use), then calculate the total length of the pipe installation so that you don't have excess or deficiency when buying a pipe. The size of the pipe diameter (OD) available on the market varies widely. PVC pipes usually have a pipe diameter (OD) ranging in size from 5/8 "-28", for HDPE pipes it ranges from 20mm-1200mm, and for PP-R pipes it ranges from 20mm-160mm. Pipe types also vary according to standards, for PVC pipes consisting of types AW / D, VP / VU, S6.3-S16, for HDPE pipes available in type PN6.3-PN20, and PP-R pipes consisting of type PN10- PN20. Also, the length of the pipe has various forms, some are in the form of bars or rolls. For PVC pipes it is usually in the form of bars (4m, 6m), for HDPE pipes in the form of bars (6m, 12m) and rolls (50m, 100m), and PP-R pipes in the form of bars (4m). All Vinilon products are specially produced and go through a rigorous testing process to meet the needs of housing, industry, buildings, and infrastructure. Vinilon can also be used for all applications, both for cold water and hot water, gas, and telecommunications. The latest technology from Vinilon can also be used for building installation needs because it is capable of flowing water from a temperature of 20-95oC and can withstand flow pressures ranging from 5-20bar.
Select Quality and Certified PipesMake sure the pipe you choose has been tested and has certification, such as SNI, JIS, LEMIGAS, OHSAS, SPLN, SIRIM QAS International, CIQS, TELKOM, DIN, and ISO certifications. Vinilon pipe has been tested with SNI, JIS, and ISO certification. This is by Vinilon's commitment to deliver high-quality pipe products, to meet the needs of the Indonesian people.
This is how to choose the right water pipe for housing, industry, buildings, and infrastructure. We hope you found this guide helpful!
