Copper Pipe Replacement
CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) has been in use for water distribution systems since the 1960’s. CPVC is very similar to PVC. It is very workable, and displays excellent resistance to corrosion at high temperatures. It is also a popular choice in multifamily residences such as apartments and condominiums.
CPVC is inexpensive and easy to work with. However, there are certain times when CPVC may fail, such as with extreme hot or extreme cold temperatures. Failure may also occur if CPVC components are combined in the same system with PVC components. The longevity of a CPVC plumbing system is also heavily influenced by the placement of the pipe in the structure. Placement can be even more important in a multilevel structure where water is being pushed up many stories.
Multifamily pipe replacement can require a significant capital expense, so it is critical to plan ahead. This means understanding the scope and magnitude of the problem, budgeting accurately, and working with a company that can manage the project from start to finish.
