Water is a fundamental human need - And water leakage is a global problem which is quickly escalating to a crisis in many parts of the world.
Service pipe made of Type 316 stainless steel provides a hygienic, corrosion resistant and long-lasting solution of 100 years or more.
Nickel-containing Type 316 stainless steel is used to manufacture partially corrugated piping. It is flexible, resistant to seismic shocks and eliminates the need for most fittings and elbows, making it easy to install.
The corrugated system minimizes potential leakage, substantially reducing repair cases and the resources needed for their detection.
Pipe replacement has been shown to offer the most significant benefit in overcoming water loss, as part of an overall water loss strategy
This publication, Stainless Steel Service Pipes: A proven solution to water loss and water quality everywhere, published by the Nickel Institute and the International Molybdenum Association, shows how nickel-containing stainless steel service pipes are part of the solution to adress a global issue.
