Have You Considered PVC Pipes?

Have You Considered PVC Pipes? | HP Mechanical

When you need to replace your pipes, first consult us at HP Mechanical. Of course, savings and the environment must be considered, while making certain that your house is up-to-date, because who likes a leaking old house anyway? When your house turns a decade old, the need for new plumbing fixtures often arises, but as home owners ourselves, we know that you want a solution that does now leave a dent in your wallet (or purse, depending.)

PVC is a form of plastic and is the world's third-most produced synthetic material in the world after polyethylene and polypropylene. This material has a German origin, a chemist named Eugene Baumann who discovered this accidentally.

Over time, inventors came up with its different uses. Over the years, it has been used more and more to replace metal pipes for drainage of used and fresh water.

It is produced in two different forms--one being the rigid and the flexible form, where the former is widely used for construction purposes, pipes, doors and windows. If you live in a fairly modern home, it is likely fitted with PVC plumbing supplies.

Why are people using PVC plumbing in their homes?

These supplies are designed to resist moisture, friction and corrosion.

It's Easy to Maintain
PVC pipes are easier to clean, in case of when a drain gets clogged, you can open them by using normal household methods, which makes its maintenance ten times more easy than ordinary pipes.

It's Non-Reactive with Other Materials
They can be joined with other building materials without the fear of corrosion. Metals like copper and iron are reactive to each other and can't be connected due to this reason.

It's Lightweight and Affordable
Reduces strenuous labor work, as they don't have to weld like metal pipes. They are lightweight and are easy to carry, reducing the chances of injuries during construction while simultaneously bringing down labor costs.

It's Environment-Friendly
It also has a great impact on the environment because it emits a low percentage of greenhouse gases and preserves the natural resources.

It's Recyclable
PVC pipes are not biodegradable, which means you can recycle them and make use of the material to form other things.

Client's Testimonial

Happy to Recommend HP Mechanical

Rudy did excellent work and I’m happy to recommend him and hire him again. He installed a new water heater to code, was responsive, on time and kept the job site tidy, and charged a fair price.

Also appreciated his readiness to answer questions and provide guidance.
