We all know water is as important as breathing is to our life. It is very scary to know how water is depleting at alarming rates. Lack of adequate raining, diminution of fresh water resources like lakes and water bodies and the speedy fall in groundwater levels are not the only causes responsible for the decrease in global water content. Water quality degradation and careless use of the available amount of water by humans are the two biggest reasons that are responsible for this raging exhaustion of the resource. And the scenario further worsens when we take a look at the condition in rural areas. With the absence of proper pipes and fitting infrastructure, those people usually get access to water from wells that are placed far off.
It is high time we must realize the gravity of the situation and start contributing on an individual level. Talking realistically, it is not easy to bring out the changes in the situation overnight but we can adapt to certain habits in self and changes in technology for the betterment. Transporting water from the source to varying destinations, pipes are fitted and used to ease the process. Well schemed implementation of pipelines is very crucial to make sure water reaches to every place where there is a demand. But is these pipes are made up of iron or concrete that is easy prey to rusting and damage, then more prudent alternatives must be chosen.
One such substitute is PVC pipes. They are the safest, cost-efficient and above all, recyclable pipes that make the best water fitting pipes. They are the type of pipes that have incurred the least water breaks over a period of usage. Miraj Group is the most prominent and trusted pipe manufacturer across India. Their plastic PVC pipes have become the first choice of every household, because of their longevity and easy installation property. Moreover, they are rust-free and can be easily set up anywhere at very low cost, thus these can be used in solving irrigation problems in rural areas.
There are two types of PVC pipes: UPVC plumbing pipes and CPVC plumbing pipes. UPVC Pipes or Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride pipes have become the talk of the town because of their hygienic, maintenance-free, cold water supply characteristics. Available at cost effective prices, these pipes and fittings are UV protected and allow no sediment deposition, making the water flow smooth and lossless. The inner surface of the pipes is made from lead-free material, which is why these pipes neither corrode nor affect the water quality.
Like wisely, CPVC pipes or Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipes are more flexible and withstand extreme heat. The best attribute of CPVC pipes is that they are readily workable, i.e., they can be easily formed, welded and installed. Because of the increased insulation, they condense less and maintain both the hot and cold temperature of water for long. Since these pipes are firm and leakage resistant, therefore they can help in avoiding the wastage of water due to unnecessary leakage.
Another suitable option is HDPE pipes or High-Density Polyethylene Pipes that are made with a superior quality thermoplastic material that makes them highly rigid as well as flexible. They do not require too many rubber fabrication or chemicals for joining, which makes them the best pipes and fitting material even in the earthquake-prone areas. They even reduce the need for creating insulation inside the pipes, because of their low thermal conductivity. Their extreme durability has helped us find its application in the Ocean Clean Up project, thus helping in preserving the water quality.
This is how the PVC pipes have secured an irreplaceable position in providing unobstructed irrigation supply to the fields and in fighting the water scarcity in rural areas. Using only high-quality pipes and fittings can avoid the unwanted waste of water along with preserving water quality. This is just a step that can be taken as a responsible citizen, to combat the situation of water shortage. We can also resort to many other changes in our daily habits to preserve water as much as we can.
