Coils of water duct protect MDPE mains water runs as they're buried underground. They come complete with a drawcord and coupler/joiner and has a ribbed outer surface and a smooth inner surface.
A mains water supply "pulses" underground as different volumes pass through it. This increases the risk of wear and tear on the materials, and can sometimes cause breakage or leaking. This is why it must be protected within a suitable system.
Water ducting is coloured blue warn anyone who may be digging up the ground that a mains water supply is installed inside. A warning tape should also be used as further protection.
It is available as twinwall coils in lengths of 50m. They are generally available in sizes from 63mm to a larger diameter of 110mm. These products require very little set up time, are impact resistant, and are very flexible - so minimal jointing is required. Twinwall products provide the benefits of a single-walled product together with vastly improved toughness and durability. The coil meets its specified strength ratings by retaining the correct thicknesses throughout.
All blue water ducting coils are coloured to match NJUG recommendations. We supply it in 6 metre lengths and 50-metre coils. The inside is smooth to prevent catching when pulling through the duct. If required, installing two seals ensures a watertight joint.
Features and Advantages of HDPE Water Pipe Ducting
⦁ Internal smooth bore stops snagging
⦁ Flexible and lightweight
⦁ Impact resistance at low temperatures
⦁ Durable and strong as a result of its corrugated profile
Complies with BS EN 61386-24. BBA approved.
HDPE is inert, which means it does not chemically react to substances around it. While this has obvious advantages for avoiding direct reactions should anything be spilled on the product - there's also the advantage of knowing that there isn't going to be any reaction when the product is underground. Surrounding soil or substances that can permeate the soil can cause some lesser products to deteriorate and weaked - but HDPE will remain strong, no matter what it's exposed to.
Although HDPE isn't ideal for tight angles, it's perfectly suited to making longer, larger radius bends - which reduces the need for joints.
Of course, being lightweight, HDPE is also much easier to work with compared to traditional materials - and its reduced weight massively reduces transportation costs; which in turn has a big impact on the environment - and your delivery charges!
