3 Benefits of Using Wirsbo Pipe for Water Main Line Replacement
The fully-licensed plumbers at 3 Mountains Plumbing are experts at water main line replacements. Serving the greater Portland area’s plumbing needs for over a decade, 3 Mountains Plumbing has determined that the best piping option for water service replacements is Polyethylene Wirsbo pipe.
Here are a few reasons why:
1. One Long Roll of Pipe. No Sloppy Joint Threads.
Unlike galvanized, copper, or PVC pipe, Wirsbo is more easily installed in one long roll. This is convenient especially for Portland homeowners whose main line connects from sidewalk to house. Inefficient glue joints and threads only provide more opportunities for leaks, rust, and corrosion. Wirsbo pipe provides a direct connection from your house to the water meter without increased potential for future joint-related problems.
2. Improved Crosslinking Technology.
As an alternative to sloppy joint or glue threads, Wirsbo employs an improved cross linking joint technology. Wirsbo doesn’t rely upon the instability of solvents or glues, but was created to expand and shrink for durability.
3. Wirsbo Pipe is Under Warranty!
3 Mountains Plumbing is so confident in the longevity of Wirsbo pipe we offer a 10-year warranty on labor and materials. Moreover, because 3 Mountains Plumbing is a certified installer of Wirsbo pipe,Uponor, the German developer of Wirsbo, provides a 25-year warranty on all delivered pipe and fittings.
Yes, there are other, perhaps less expensive, piping options for water main line replacements, but only Wirsbo:
- Eliminates water hammer and “singing pipe sounds”
- Dampens noise from rushing water
- Resists corrosion and mineral backup
- Retains additional heat in hot water lines
- Prevents condensation on cold water lines
