What are the 5 main types of pipes?cid=39

PVC pipes (polyvinyl chloride pipes):

PVC pipe is a common plastic pipe with good corrosion and wear resistance. It is commonly used in water supply pipes, drainage pipes, and sewage pipes and is widely used in residential and commercial buildings because of its low price and easy installation.

Copper pipe:

Copper is a traditional metal pipe material with excellent corrosion and high-temperature resistance. It is commonly used in water supply pipes, heating pipes, and refrigeration pipes. Copper pipes are recognized for their durability and reliability, but they are more expensive.

PEX pipe (cross-linked polyethylene pipe):

PEX pipe is a new type of plastic pipe material with good flexibility and heat resistance. It is commonly used in water supply and heating pipes, and its flexibility and durability make it increasingly popular in modern buildings.

HDPE pipe (high-density polyethylene pipe):

HDPE pipe is a high-density polyethylene pipe with excellent corrosion resistance and pressure resistance. HDPE pipes are commonly used in water supply pipelines, drainage pipelines, and natural gas pipelines. Their impact resistance and durability make them widely used underground and on the surface.

Galvanized steel pipe:

A galvanized steel pipe is a type of metal pipe that has been galvanized to prevent corrosion. They are often used in water supply pipes, drainage pipes, and fire sprinkler pipes where corrosion resistance is required, but their installation is relatively complex and costly.

Overall, each type of pipe has its unique advantages and applicability, and selecting the appropriate pipe type depends on specific application needs, budget, and environmental conditions. When selecting pipes and fittings, it is necessary to comprehensively consider the actual situation and select the most appropriate pipe type to meet the needs.
