As a homeowner or property owner, keeping your plumbing system
in good condition is crucial. Plumbing pipes can become old,
worn, and outdated, leading to leaks, corrosion, and other
Replacing old plumbing pipes is often a wise decision to avoid
costly repairs and ensure the safety of your home or property.
This blog post will discuss why replacing old plumbing pipes is
a good idea and how RAKtherm PPR piping systems can help.
Old plumbing pipes, particularly those made of outdated
materials like galvanized steel or copper, can be prone to
leaks, rust, and corrosion. These issues can result in water
damage, mold growth, and even health hazards, such as exposure
to lead from older pipes.
Replacing old plumbing pipes with newer, more durable materials
like PPR pipes can prevent these issues and extend your plumbing
system's life. Not to mention the added health benefits you get
from PPR technology.
RAKtherm PPR piping systems are an ideal replacement for old
plumbing pipes. They are made from non-toxic, food-grade
materials safe for human consumption and offer exceptional
durability and longevity.
In addition, RAKtherm PPR pipes are resistant to corrosion,
scale, and chemicals, which makes them an excellent choice for
use in harsh environments such as chemical plants, industrial
facilities, and hospitals.
Moreover, RAKtherm’s flagship PPR piping systems can withstand
high temperatures and pressures, making them suitable for hot
and cold water applications. In addition, they are easy to
install, require minimal maintenance, and can be easily repaired
without extensive excavation or replacement of the entire
system. Here’s how:
Lightweight material: PPR pipes are made from
a lightweight plastic material, which makes them easy to
transport, handle, and install. This reduces the overall
installation time and effort compared to traditional metal
Easy joining techniques: PPR pipes can be
joined using heat fusion, which involves heating the pipe ends
and fusing them to create a solid, leak-free joint. We also
offer fittings, adapters, and other hardware to integrate our
PPR piping systems with others.
Corrosion resistance: PPR pipes are highly
corrosion-resistant, both internally and externally. This
means they require minimal maintenance over time, as they are
not subject to the same wear and tear as metal pipes.
Flexibility: PPR pipes have a certain degree
of flexibility, which allows them to absorb shocks and
vibrations better. This reduces the risk of damage and
breakage in the system, reducing the need for continuing
Leak-free system: The heat fusion joining
method ensures no weak points or leaks. This reduces the need
for constant maintenance and repairs
Easy repairs: If a PPR pipe is damaged, it
can often be repaired by cutting out the damaged section and
using heat fusion to join a new piece of pipe. This process is
straightforward and does not require extensive excavation or
the replacement of the entire system.
Long lifespan: PPR pipes have an expected
lifespan of around 50 years, which means they require fewer
replacements than other materials like metal.
Replacing old plumbing pipes with RAKtherm PPR piping systems
can also save energy. The latest PPR pipes also feature enhanced
insulation properties that prevent heat loss and maintain water
temperature. That translates into reduced energy bills and lower
carbon footprints, making them an eco-friendly option.
In conclusion, replacing old plumbing pipes is a wise decision
to avoid costly repairs and ensure the safety and efficiency of
your plumbing system. RAKtherm PPR piping systems are an ideal
replacement choice as they are safe, durable, and eco-friendly.
They offer numerous benefits, including health benefits, energy
savings, and easy installation and maintenance. So, if you're
considering replacing your old plumbing pipes, RAKtherm PPR
piping systems are a wise choice for a long-lasting and
efficient plumbing system.
