General

Over 1 million miles of PVC sewer pipe is in service in the United States, and growing every year.

Absolutely! PVC can replace existing Ductile Iron systems because the outside diameter is the same. Therefore fittings, valves and other appurtenances will fit and are readily available.

PVC pipe has a life expectancy of over 100 years, according to research done by Utah State University and other surveys.

It can be substantially lower than older technologies. When you consider the cost of installation and its very low maintenance costs, the advantages are multiplied.

Generally, utilities want their critical underground assets to be identifiable when uncovered. Typically utilities prefer blue water pipe, green sewer pipe and purple reuse pipe. Unlike many products, PVC can be colored during manufacture.
