Water and Wastewater 

Polyethylene pressure pipe is used worldwide for water distribution and transmission systems. DriscoPlex® piping components are made from pressure-rated PE4710 (PE3408), high-density polyethylene material to meet the stringent demands of today's municipal water distribution and transmission systems. Polyethylene pipe offers:

  • Lowest failure rates for water mains of all pipe material.  
  • Longest life cycle and lowest maintenance costs.
  • Resistance to galvanic corrosion.
  • Heat fusion joints that provide continuous pipe. No gaskets to leak.
  • Lightweight and flexible. 
  • Toughness and impact resistance, including high resistance to RCP.
  • Excellent flow characteristics.
  • Easy repairs with mechanical or fused joints.
