Are CPVC Piping Systems a Safe and Reliable Choice?
Maintaining the quality of water critically important for any residential or commercial plumbing system. Whether or not the piping material is contaminating the water flowing through the pipes, rendering it unsafe for use, is a primary concern for any homeowner. Your choice of the right pipe material plays a great role in ensuring free-flowing safe water in your home. This is where CPVC pipes come into the picture. According to several studies it has can be safely claimed that CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes are one of the safest non-metallic materials for transportation of water.
CPVC pipes rates are affordable and their applications versatile – CPVCis safe for most warm and cold-water applications and come with a number of different fittings and sizes available.
Let’s talk about some of the reasons behind this claim.
CPVC Pipes Have Anti-Bacterial Properties
Bacteria build up can be limited by using proper piping material. Some pipes are more susceptible to bacteria build up than others. And despite disinfection, water you use can still contain bacteria as these micro organisms can grow on the inside of the pipe walls. This is called biofilm formation.The secret of CPVC’s resistance to contamination lies in its very low potential for biofilm formation.CPVC pipesand fittings have ultra-smooth walls and surfaces that discourages the growth of bacteria along its inside walls. Lack of plasticizers in their composition also help these pipes to resist bacterial growth.
CPVC Pipes are Chlorine Resistant
When Chlorine in the water disinfectants mix with water, it produces hypochlorous acid, known to break down pipe material. Since CPVC pipes have chlorine in their chemical composition and undergoes a chlorination process, it remains unaffected by the harmful hypochlorous acid. This makes these pipes chlorine resistant and safe and durable.
CPVC Pipes are Chemical Permeation Resistant
The process when substances come in contact with the outside of pipes and allows contaminants to enter the water into the pipe through the pipe wall is called chemical permeation. But as CPVC pipes have chlorine, additives and because of their chemical make-up, these pipes are able to resist permeation of many chemical pollutants that makes water unsafe for use.
