What do MDPE Pipes Do?
MDPE pipes are often used as cold water mains pipes for homes and commercial properties. They are a safer alternative to traditional lead piping and can withstand high-pressure water from the mains supply. MDPE pipes should be installed underground, as exposure to sunlight can cause the pipes to degrade.
