Cold Weather Pipe

dzzmillerJuly 28, 2014

What's considered the highest quality buried irrigation piping for cold winter areas? In my area installers use poly, but I've seen some people suggest that this material is the easiest for them to machine install.

What's the least likely material to leak in cold weather areas where the system is "blown out" each fall? Thanks.

Both Poly and PVC have their pros and cons. Sch80 PVC is stronger than Sch40 PVC and would do better in freezing climates. I believe the key is the depth of installation and metal everything through the soil freezing depth and above ground. JMHO Aloha
