A lot of homeowners are looking for an alternative to metal pipes, which can be too expensive. PVC is now becoming a popular piping material. It definitely has many advantages but it is still susceptible to certain problems, like brittleness if exposed to UV light. When your PVC pipe becomes brittle, it will then become prone to bursting and leakages. Contact a Sarasota based company offering PVC pipe repair when this happens.
Another thing to consider if you are thinking of installing PVC pipes is it can only handle hot water in its chlorinated or CPVC form. You also have to look at the thickness of the walls of your home as well as the water pressure before installing PVC pipes. Despite some drawbacks, PVC has many advantages. Aside from being an alternative choice for piping, it is very easy to work with and is lightweight. It can be more flexible than galvanized pipe and can last for years (if it isn’t exposed to UV light).
