That is why it is extremely important that you choose right kind of plumbing solutions for your home. For better results experts recommend you to choose PVC for the plumbing work in your house. About PVC pipes, you may have some doubts and confusion in your mind related to its usability. So, here I am sharing some of the Pros & Cons on using PVC in plumbing and then you can take your decision in a much confident manner.

Pros of using PVC in plumbing

Durable in use: This might surprise you but that is a big fact that PVC plumbing can be very much durable in use. In modern time PVC pipes can be much stronger than many metal pipes or plumbing supplies. The good thing about plastic is that you can easily band it and you can configure the same without any issue. That is one of the best pros of this particular option for using PVC as your plumbing option. So, I think durability is one of the pros that can help you choose this option for sure.

No corrosion: In metal pipes corrosion is one of the biggest issues that can affect the entire plumbing. Metal pipes can react with waters mineral or other elements from environment and it can reduce the strength of your plumbing. PVC pipes or material does not have this limitation and it will not have any kind of reaction or corrosion in any situation. So, you would get nothing but the best results and you can use it for a very long time as well. Needless to say that is one of the best pros of using this particular option for plumbing.

Versatile: It does not matter what kind of plumbing work you are doing, you can get a solution for that in PVC. In this list of pros, we can always include this versatility as a great factor. If you want to use it for a high rise building you can do that and if you want to use the same in your small sized home, you can use that also. Other than this, various options are also available in pvc plumbing such as bigger pipes, bendable pipes etc. So, it is safe to say that you can easily install and use the PVC pipe at any place with great ease. 

Plumbing

Proper insulation: For bathing or for your day to day use you always want to use water at an optimum temperature. You can have that result only if you choose right kind of pipes for that. Metal pipes are not good against temperature variation. In the summer it can get very warm and in winter it can get very cold. Well, in Singapore, you may not need to worry about the winter, but you always need to worry about the heat of sun. You don’t want to get burned by the hot tap water and that is when PVC plumbing can help you in that. Proper insulation is one of the biggest pros for this option and that is one more big reason that can encourage you to choose this in your home or office.

Cons of PVC plumbing

Heat constraints: Although PVC pipes can sustain in a good amount of heat, but if that temperature goes beyond a certain limit, that your pvc pipes may start having some damages in it. Due to excessive heat your pipes may get melted from inside, it can have other damages and it can have leakage as well. Thankfully this is one of those cons that does not affect many people because your water heater comes with a safety measure and it does not allow the water to boil beyond a certain temperature. The only thing you need to remember is that you keep a check on your water boiler and if you notice anything is wrong in that, then you get it corrected without any delay.

Higher Cost: Cost is one of the biggest cons for pvc plumbing. Many people may assume that PVC could be cheaper in terms of installation or overall expenses, but that is not the fact. As a matter of fact this option could be more costlier than the metal option. This is definitely one of those cons that can restrict you to use it. However, you don’t have to worry much about this, because only installation cost is higher and if you check its life time compared to metal plumbing, then it is much higher. That means you would not have to worry about investing money again and again in every few years. Nor you would have to pay for the damage restoration due to plumbing work. So, this is one of those cons that can be a profitable option on long term basis.

Plumbing

Environment issues: PVC is not safe for environment. This is a fact and you don’t need to get degree to understand this fact. It can have various side effects on the nature because it does not dissolve naturally, its making is not environment friendly and you can find so many other cons similar to this. Other than this, you also need to know that if you fail to choose the PVC plumbing for your home in a proper manner, then you may end up having no positive results at all. So, it is a wise idea that you keep that thing also in your mind while checking its cons. But if you would choose right kind of pipes from a trustworthy brand, then you can get rid of this issue as well and you can get pipes that are completely safe for you and your family. Hence, if you want to use PVC for your home plumbing, then this is not one of those cons that can restrict you in its usage.
