PEX pipes

Commercial buildings are built a lot different than traditional homes. A commercial building may need more piping, different types of pipes, or pipes that go deeper underground to connect to local water systems. If you own a commercial building or property, then you should know the different types of pipes you deal with to help you plan should you ever need a pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA.

Galvanized Steel Pipes

If your building was built some time before the 1960s, then it was likely built with galvanized steel pipes. These steel pipes hold up to temperatures, but wear and tear over time can cause leaks and other issues. Instead of digging up the foundation of a building, a trenchless pipe lining company can install a liner inside the pipe so you do not need to replace the entire system.

The steel pipes will often lead to storm drains outside your business and you can pair pipe lining services with storm drain rehabilitation to prevent any major problems.

PVC & CPVC Pipes

Many of the water pipes in your building will transport the water through either PVC or CPVC pipes. The thick plastic pipes offer a lot of durability, but leaks and wear can occur through the years. Like steel pipes, you can add an extra layer of protection to old PVC pipes with the use of CIPP pipe lining.

PEX Pipes

One of the newest water transportation pipes found in buildings is a PEX pipe. PEX pipes have the strength and durability to withstand excess pressure from water. The flexible plastic in the pipes is also resistant to corrosion. When you hire an underground utility construction company, consider the installation of PEX pipes as a modern alternative for certain water uses in a commercial building.
