PP-R swap brings plant room savings

PP-R swap brings plant room savings

Plastic Pipe Systems Limited saved the contractor 71% of materials cost by recommending their Wefatherm PP-R system for a plant room job.

The original specification was to use MDPE Pressure Pipe electrofusion, but they were able to advise on the suitability, and cost saving, of switching to PP-R.

The requirement was:
• A header in 63mm dia. to connect water to each flat
• 90mm dia. from the storage tank to the pump. Connections including isolation/strainer valves
• 32mm dia. from the storage tank to the sprinkler system including isolation valves

Plumbing subcontractor MDO Pipe Fitting Solutions came in and completed the project in just 2 days.

Plastic Pipe Systems's main involvement on this new build site of 9 apartments (11 bathrooms) in Deptford, London, was through merchant Professional Plumbing Supplies Limited who supplied all bathroom materials and the Wefatherm PP-R system.

Plastic Pipe Systems Limited were pleased to add value with their knowledge and advice.
