Polyethylene (PE) Pipe systems have been in use for over 50 years now for potable water applications throughout the world.  Since the first systems were installed in the early 1960’s there has been an exciting evolution of the specific materials and processes used to produce PE pipe.  In addition to increased technological capabilities for manufacturing and installation, the industry as a whole has been invested in ensuring the evolution of PE pipe to be the absolute best it can be.

 

The result of all this hard work and applied research?  Based on a recent study by Jana Laboratories of over 208 Utilities across America, the satisfaction levels with PE Pipe systems (installed over the past 20 years) is over 93%.  That is a huge number! With a lifetime expectancy of well over 100 years, this means PE Pipe is probably one of the best infrastructure investments a utility can make.

 

The combination of the long lifetime of Polyethylene Pipe in addition to a 100% leak free system means that PE Pipe is the best choice for potable water distribution available.  Not only because of the financial implications, but also for the environment.
