MDPE pipe is an ideal solution for water conveyance due to its high tolerance to falls and to shock, and high resistance to environmental stress cracking.
In the case of older properties, MDPE is an ideal alternative to replace lead water pipes as, unlike lead, it doesn't pose a toxicity risk. On top of this, in normal operating conditions, it doesn't support the microbiological growth of algae, bacteria or fungi.
Blue MDPE pipe is approved for use below ground for potable mains water conveyance.
Black MDPE pipe is virtually the same, but has additional UV protection for use above ground in general water applications.
