How to Install PPR Pipes Correctly: A Comprehensive Guide

Tools and Materials Required

Pre-Installation Preparations

  • Determine the pipe length and diameter required for the installation.
  • Clean the pipes and fittings using a dry cloth or rag.
  • Use the chamfering tool to bevel the pipe ends to prevent damage during installation and to provide a smooth surface for welding.
  • Cut the pipes to the required length using the pipe cutter. Ensure that the edges are straight and clean.
  • Install the pre-insulated foam sheets over the pipes to prevent heat loss during welding.

Welding the Pipes and Fittings

  • Connect the welding machine to a power source and set the appropriate temperature.
  • Insert the pipe ends into the welding machine and wait for the welding process to complete.
  • Join the pipes and fittings together and hold them in place until they cool and solidify.
  • Use a pressure test to check for leaks before continuing with the installation process.

Installing the Pipes

Testing the System

  • Open the main valve to allow water to flow through the system.
  • Check for leaks and fix any problems that may occur.
  • Once you are satisfied that there are no leaks, close the main valve and proceed with the installation process.
