PVC Pipe

PVC pipe is plastic pipe made from the thermoplastic material polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC pipe is commonly used across applications and industries and comes in different types. PVC piping is often used in drainage, water supply, irrigation, chemical handling, vent tubing, duct work and waste management plumbing supply applications. Available PVC plumbing supply products are schedule 40 PVC, schedule 80 PVC, furniture grade PVC pipe, CPVC pipe, drain waste vent (DWV) pipe, flex pipe, clear PVC pipe and double containment pipe.

Schedule 40 and schedule 80 pipe are versatile piping certified and registered per industry codes and standards for today's many uses. Furniture grade PVC pipe is available in different colors without markings or labels and features a clean, glossy finish. DWV piping is used for structural handling of waste materials. Flex pipe is flexible PVC pipe for applications where rigid pipe is not suitable or useful. Clear piping allows visual monitoring of fluid flow and pipe quality. Double containment pipe is designed to meet industry regulations to capture system leaks or failures for improving safety or when it is required.

PVC pipe is available in sizes that range from 1/8 inch up to 24 inches in diameter. Some of the most common sizes are ½ inch, 1 ½ inch, 3 inch, 4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch and 10 inch PVC pipe. PVC piping is shipped in standard 10 foot or 20 foot length sections. This saves on overall handling costs and allows offering lower priced products. We have 5 foot sections of SCH 40 PVC, SCH 80 PVC and furniture PVC exclusively available for shipping ground.

Often, when PVC pipe is used to refer to plastic pipe, it is understood to be uPVC (unplasticized PVC). uPVC is rigid plastic pipe. uPVC is the most commonly used form of PVC piping. uPVC pipe is free of plasticizing agents that would make the PVC material more flexible. Flex pipe is an example of plasticized PVC due to its hose-like style.
