PVC Pipe Is Sized According to Its Inside Diameter

Polyvinyl chloride, better known as “PVC”, is a very strong and light weight material, which is used to make many common items ranging from small, daily-use items to electrical insulation to giant tanks and, of course, PVC piping. Pipes are available in various different types of pvc including suction pipes, duct pipes, raiser/drop pipes and many kinds of tubing. Underground PVC pipe, or subsurface PVC pipe, is utilized in various forms of buried conduit including running electrical wire, drainage and supply piping. They’re manufactured in varying qualities and for various purposes; they’re also heat-resistant, weather-proof, very durable and rust-free. PVC pipes are required for permanent applications such as water supply. Regardless of quality, a good PVC pipe detector (like the AML PVC Pipe Detector from SSI Locators) will be able to locate all different types of buried PVC pipe. Using a revolutionary, patented scientific process, the AML is changing the way people locate underground PVC pipe. Conveniently, it can also locate nearly any subsurface material with an edge including concrete, metal, plastic, cable and wood. Therefore it also makes a good wire locator and buried cable locator. The AML can find virtually any buried material through almost any surface.

PVC riser pipes are generally used for running electrical, water supply, drainage and in sewer lines. Those of us in the sewer detection and water main detection industries are around buried PVC pipe on a regular basis. Using a PVC pipe locator for pipe detection, like the aforementioned AML unit, makes locating subsurface PVC pipe easier than using ground penetrating radar because it is a small, hand-held unit with simple indicators. Its exclusive ultra-high radio frequency technology is revolutionizing the process of locating buried PVC pipes. It is currently the best PVC pipe detector on the market.

PVC column pipes are made from the best materials, combining plastic with PVC. The resulting pipe surface is very smooth on both the inner and outer sides, making them resistant to contamination from bacteria. They’re the best option for submersible pumps and for forming the borehole for tube well purposes. That’s why the majority of column pipe is being used for water lifting pumps. People in the water main detection and sewer detection industries recognize that the quality material and smooth surface ensure no galvanizing or electrolytic effects. Again, the AML can be implemented as a gas pipe locator or PVC pipe locator, and can detect almost any other subsurface material as well.

Regardless of quality of materials, a decent pipe detector or pipe locator will be able to map out the location of underground pipes. The highest quality PVC pipes are column pipes. They use the best type of threads, like square threads, to provide a leak-proof seal. One end has a built-in socket with threads, the other end has open threads. This means you won’t need to purchase sockets separately. An inner rubber ring ensures there isn’t a drop of leakage after they’re tightened. Column pipes are used for permanent purposes, like water drawing pumps, permanent water supply and irrigation.

If you need to locate underground PVC pipes on a regular basis, then the All Materials Locator is a must-own PVC pipe detector.
