Authored by John C. McGann, PE | GLHN Architects & Engineers, Inc.
In the first part of this series on thermoplastic piping, a discussion was presented focused on the use thermoplastic piping systems in buildings. In the following discussion we review the use of thermoplastic piping in site distribution system, with specific emphasis on HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) and PE-RT (Polypropylene of Raised Temperature resistance) piping systems. We will share our opinions, key takeaways, and lessons learned from recent projects.
