In Western Europe, the use of plastic pipe in new construction and major repairs have already transferred 60% of the total line of pipes. In Russia, the 1996 Decree 18-46 Ministry of Construction Russian Federation was introduced by ch and P 2.04.01-85 (the change of number 2). Internal water supply and sanitation of buildings, where in paragraph 10.1, we can say, mandate the use of plastic pipes. In the same period was adopted "Code of Practice on Design and installation of pipelines made of polypropylene "SP 40-101. Since polymeric pipes took a strong position in Russia's construction of (C H and N 40-102-2000, ch and P 01/21/1997, po 1940 107-2003, etc.), and not just in it. Demand for plastics pipes significantly has grown and continues to grow rapidly. Until recently, the demand for these products was met mainly by imports, but domestic producers, purchased and installed the most modern equipment quickly began to produce quality products having high demand and began to displace imported products from the Russian market.
Pipes made of polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (RVC) became an absolute leader in the general volume manufacturing of plastic pipes. Once again, remember the advantages of plastic pipes: Polyethylene pipes have a longer life than metal pipes (warranty period – 50 years); Lack of corrosion and other products oxidation extend the range of their application. No effect on smell and taste allows their use in the food industry; Resistant to aggressive media allows their use for transportation of chemical liquids; When using plastic pipes for water supply, they retain the ecological purity of water and its hygienic safety; In the absence of roughness on the inside surface of the plastic pipe does not happen of its overgrowth, less loss on the resistance and hence energy loss in transportation; When transporting pprc can be used light trucks are facilitated loading and unloading operations; High elasticity to withstand the expansion of water in pipes at low temperatures; High insulation properties ensure minimize heat loss in hot water and the lack of a condensate at the cold; Ease of plastic pipes and fittings significantly reduce transportation and storage costs and complexity of installation, which respectively reduces time and cost of installation. Polypropylene tubes are available bays in length and 400 m, which simplifies the installation of long lines; Polymer pipes and fittings do not require spraying, because look quite aesthetically pleasing;
