Site installation of thermoplastic pipework is straightforward and can usually be completed in a fraction of the time taken to install metallic systems.

PVC-U, PVC-C and ABS pipe systems can all be joined together using a cold solvent welded method which requires no specialised equipment. Polypropylene, Polyethylene and PVDF pipes are resistant to most organic solvents, however, and require heat to weld the materials.

Regardless of the choice of material, installation time and efficiency is greatly improved by using the correct tool for the job. In this section we include tools for cutting, chamfering and joining plastic pipes from the extensive Reed Tools range.
