In the last piece, we learned the comparison among PB, PPR and stainless steel pipes. This time let’s analyze the copper pipe.
Comparison between PPR and copper pipe
As the traditional pipe, copper pipe has strong stiffness and corrosion resistance. Besides, it’s very durable and it can effectively prevent the germs. Thus it has a wide application. However, it not suitable for household use. Because the installation is too difficult and the price is too high. Moreover, the heat dissipation is too fast. Thus it’s not suitable for hot and cool water.
Compared with copper pipe, PPR pipe almost has the same advantages. Moreover, it can serve for both hot and cool water. However, the price is much lower than copper. Thus it’s cost-effective for most of the families.
Compared with PB, stainless steel and copper pipes, PPR pipe has many advantages as follow.
Easy and safe connection
PPR pipe adsorbs hot melting connect method. While it’s the most safe and stable connect method presently. You only need a hot melt welding machine and a scissor to install. Thus it’s really easy to carry and operate. Besides, the later maintenance is simple.
Save energy and environmental protecting
The process procedure of PP is simple without any pollution. Besides, the PPR pipe can recycle, which makes it more eco-friendly. Moreover, the heat dissipation index is low. Thus the heat loss is small, then save energy.
Long service life
PPR pipe resists corrosion without ant pollution. Besides, it can resist creep deformation resistance for long term. On some occasions, it can serve over 50 years.
Price is lower than others
PPR pipe has competitive price compared with other pipes. Together with the effective and convenient installation, it’s popular on the market. Besides, it’s the main water supply pipe for house.
