Impending Thaw May Cause Pipe Breaks, Leaks

Deck: 

Expert recommends proactive strategies to monitor water usage data

While most of the country braces for more snow and ice, adding onto an already recordbreaking season, the water infrastructure is cracking below. As a result, when the thaw does come, pipe may break above and below ground, causing massive water loss and high utility costs.

Costs can be substantially higher for commercial, multifamily and institutional properties if proactive steps are not being taken.

Picking Plastic for Pipe

When choosing pipe or fittings for any water application, the material options can be overwhelming. This was not always the case, though: For centuries, most pipe was made of lead or wood. In fact, the word plumbing is derived from the Latin word for lead, plumbum.  Although the mechanical properties of lead are advantageous for making pipe, its toxicity is an issue. Wood pipe, on the other hand, is nontoxic, but susceptible to leaks. And because wood is soft, people could easily drill into the pipe and steal water.
