The transport of drinking water usually takes place over long distances and imposes high demands on the distribution pipes. Hygiene, health and safety are top priorities.
Special requirements apply to the quality of pipes used to transport drinking water. The health and safety of users is paramount. The main challenge for man-made water systems, especially hot water supply networks, is the growth of bacteria such as legionella. If the quality of the pipe material is insufficient, there is a risk of contamination by or via the material of the pipe itself.
The pipes must also meet strict technical requirements:
- Suitable for cold and hot water if local drinking water quality requirements are met
- Does not affect the taste of the water
- Resistant to water hammer
- Functions under high pressure
- Long service life
