What is PVC Plumbing?
PVC or polyvinyl chloride is a material commonly used in plumbing systems all over the world. Many other types, in the form copper and other plastics, are also used but PVC has become more popular as it is cheap, easy to install, and does not react with other building materials.
Unlike copper, PVC can be easily installed and joined together using methods that are not only simple but also less hazardous. Compared to PVC, copper is more prone to leak formation due to its tendency to expand and contract.
However, before deciding for yourself that PVC is indeed the way to go, it is best to first consult an expert plumber on what his opinion is regarding the best materials for your home or property.
