Piping is one of the components of pipelines along with fittings and gaskets. What are the different types of "Gas Engineer Bristol " pipes? What pipes are they used for?

Copper pipes
Piping is the essential component of pipelines, along with fittings and gaskets. It is used to supply water and evacuate wastewater from your plumbing equipment. Copper has long been the gold standard for pipes. Today, certain new materials, such as synthetic materials, make it possible to benefit from new advantages.

If the materials differ from each other, it is still necessary to install the piping correctly so that the network does not have any problems.

It is possible to choose from multiple materials:
Copper piping
Copper is the reference material for the distribution of cold or hot water. It is a noble material (no other element goes into its composition) and resistant. It can also be used for heating.

On the other hand, the copper pipe tends to be replaced by the PVC pipe for the drains.

PVC pipes
PVC piping
The PVC pipe is mainly used at the level of wastewater evacuations where it replaced the lead which is now prohibited (because it is toxic).

This type of hose is practical because it is light and easy to install.

PER pipe
PER (cross-linked polyethylene) pipe is a semi-rigid material that tends to replace copper. It is used for sanitary plumbing (which includes water inlets and outlets in a dwelling, as well as the production of hot water) and heating installations. This material is available in several different colors, which makes it possible to identify its function.

Unlike the PVC pipe which is mainly used for waste water evacuation, the PER pipe is used to supply sanitary equipment with cold or hot water, the tube having a different color for cold water or hot water.

Seamless plumbing
Seamless plumbing essentially includes PVC as well as synthetic materials used for the supply and evacuation of water.

Unlike copper, which is a material that is welded, PVC pipes stick together. Conventional PVC is mostly used for drains, but there is a special type of PVC called superchlorinated PVC which can be used for cold or hot water supplies.

Superchlorinated PVC has the advantage of being resistant to heat, pressure and chemicals.

Multilayer pipe
Multilayer pipe is a pipe made up of several layers, some metallic and some synthetic, thanks to which it combines the advantages of copper pipes and synthetic pipes.

It can be used in seamless plumbing especially with screw connections, but also with other types of fittings.

The multilayer pipe contains 3 layers:
Inside, a layer of specific PER which reduces scaling and protects against corrosion.

In the middle, a layer of aluminum which makes the tube rigid and oxygen tight. The strength of aluminum keeps the tube in shape.

On the outside, a layer of specific PER that protects against UV rays.

A flexible pipe
The flexible hose is used for both water inlets and wastewater evacuations. Like any synthetic pipe, it does not require welding. It is a little more expensive than copper or PVC pipe, but this type of pipe is used more occasionally for difficult cases.
