Over the past decades, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes have marked its place as one of the most dominant construction materials in sewer systems. As these pipes do not rust or corrode over time, they are well suited for home plumbing piping needs. The only time replacement is needed is when these pipes are damaged or start leaking. PVC connection pipes are an important part of the toilet pipe.

PVC plays an essential role in our everyday life. They are strong, durable, and do not bend under pressure and are widely used in high-pressure applications. These pipes are used to repair sections of the broken cast-iron wastewater pipe and to repair other drain lines. PVC pipes are used for sanitary waste lines, vent pipes, and drain traps. These pipes are suitable to carry water and other industrial fluids to the machinery unit.

There are quite a few pipes used for plumbing and drainage in India.


For Plumbing

UPVC Unplasticized PVC (UPVC) is used for cold water supply distributions

CPVC Chlorinated PVC (CPVC) pipes can withstand higher temperatures and are used to carry hot water

PPR – PPR pipes (Polypropylene Random Copolymer pipes ) are used to build hot & cold water systems.

COPPER – Rigid copper pipes are one of the common types of water supply pipes used for water supply within the home as they don’t come with any health risks. Flexible copper pipes are used in final runs to water refrigerators, water heaters, and sinks.

The PVC pipes are strong, lightweight, resistant, and low-reactive. This makes them suitable for water distribution applications. PVC pipes have a maximum temperature threshold up to 60deg. C and are used for cold water lines.


PVC pipes do not wear, rot, or rust. They are resistant to fracture and have the ability to yield under loading without fracturing. PVC pipes are widely used for sanitary and underground plumbing.

Chemical Industry

PVC pipes are resistant to inorganic acids, alkalis, salts, and alcohols. They are used for transporting hazardous chemicals as they have high resistance to corrosion.

Characteristics of PVC Pipes

PVC pipes are traditionally white or dark grey. They are available in a rigid form that is commonly used in construction and piping applications and flexible forms used in electric cable insulation. They are strong, lightweight, resistant, and low-reactive. This makes them suitable for sanitary, underground plumbing, and other water distribution applications.

PVC pipes are highly resistant to fracture and have the ability to yield under loading without fracturing. PVC pipes are suitable for water transportation and drainage systems. Since PVC has a maximum temperature threshold up to 60deg. C hence, they are used for cold water lines.
