UPVC Pipes: Lead – Free Plumbing Solution

UPVC Pipes

One of the most naturally occurring elements on our planet, lead, causes immeasurable damage and even severe health complications if consumed.
Due to a number of benefits such as corrosion resistance, malleability and reasonable pricing, lead was commonly used as a raw material in manufacturing plumbing pipes for many years. However, with the rising concern of healthcare experts regarding severe health complications shifted the focus to alternate plumbing solutions. Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has permitted 0.01 mg/l(max) of lead in drinking water which boosted the growth of lead-free PVC pipe manufacturers all over India. There are endless benefits of using PVC over other materials. PVC pipes are of premium quality, cost-effective, lightweight and ideal for better water quality.

PVC Pipes – Best Solution for Safer Water

Lead-free piping is the only way through which potable water can be supplied and that’s where Skipper comes into the picture. Our lead-free piping solutions have surpassed all quality standards making Skipper pipes one of the best PVC pipe manufacturers in India.
It is important to know the differences between piping systems in order to find the right piping solution based on your application. Lead, which can easily be dissolved into water from transportation pipes can cause fatal health risks, for instance, higher lead levels in children may leave them with learning disabilities, mental unstability and behavioural complications.
