Types of Pipes and fittings materials Used in plastic Plumbing

Plumbing is a complex system of pipes connected together. Here are the different types of plumbing pipes material:

UPVC Plumbing

UPVC stands for Unplasticised PVC and is also known as rigid PVC. UPVC pipes and fittings are most commonly used for cold water plumbing system.They are light and easy to handle. They offer high mechanical performance, durability for a longer time, resistance to chemicals , UV exposure, and are 100% recyclable.

PEX Plumbing

PEX pipes or Cross-linked polyethylene pipes is a plastic material used commonly for water supply piping systems. PEX pipes have successfully replaced copper, PVC and galvanized steel plumbing pipes since they offer several advantages. These pipes are flexible, offer high-heat resistance, durable and are easy to install.

PPR Plumbing

Made from polypropylene Random copolymer plastic, PPR pipes are straight and cylindrical pipes. They are produced through a continuous extrusion process. PPR can be used in hot and cold water as well as for purified drinking water systems.

PERT Plumbing

PERT pipes are polyethylene (PE) pipes designed to withstand raised temperatures (RT). These pipes are extremely flexible and are ideal for plumbing, water service, hydronic heating and cooling and ground source geothermal piping systems.

CPVC Plumbing

CPVC or Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride pipe is a thermoplastic polymer used for hot & cold water plumbing applications in residential, commercial and industrial buildings, They are produced as a result of chlorinating the PVC polymer. CPVC pipes are bendable and exhibit fire-retardant properties. Apart from being resistant to chemicals, CPVC is resistant to many acids, alcohols, hydrocarbons and bases. CPVC pipes are made in both CTS (Copper Pipe Size) and IPS (Iron Pipe Size) standards.

Types of Plumbing Pipes & Fittings Based on Jointing System

Threaded joint

It is the mechanical joint between threaded pipes or between a threaded pipe and threaded fitting.


It is a joining process used to join together different types of metals by melting solder.

Metal Heat welding

It is a fabrication process that joins metals or hermoplastics by using high heat to melt the parts together.

Plastic heat welding

It is the process of creating a molecular bond between two thermoplastics.

Solvent cement

It is either available in the liquid or gel forms. They are used to join PVC pipes and other types of plastics. Solvent cement is very convenient to use.

Rubber ring

In this technique, a fluid seal is provided by compressing a rubber ring housed in the socket of a pipe or fitting when the spigot is passed into the socket.


This technique is used to connect two pipes or a pipe and a fixture or valve.

Plumbing Problems

Some of the major plumbing problems include

  • Leakage
  • Rusting
  • Breakage
  • Joint failure
