Vartek flexible pvc pipe

VARTEK FLEXIBLE PVC PIPE:

Vartek’s Flexible PVC Pipe is designed for use with risers or swing risers. The construction of VarTek’s Flexible PVC Pipe is comprised of a flexible PVC component and a rigid PVC component which makes handing eas-ier in warm or cold climates. The rigid reinforcement allows the pipe to make tight bends without kinking or breaking. When properly installed, the product is nearly indestructible. Vartek’s Flexible PVC Pipe can be readily assembled with standard schedule 40 PVC fittings using flexible PVC glues.

VarTek’s I.P.S. Vinyl PVC Flex Pipe offers the irrigation system much more flexibil-ity, durability, shock resistance, and ultra-violet resistance than stan-dard rigid PVC pipe can provide.

Note:
Flexible PVC Pipe should be used only on irrigation water systems and downstream of irrigation control valves. Flexible PVC Pipe is not recommended for use in applications involving high heat, high pressure, or constant pressure situations.

Application

  •          To make the most durable flexible risers
  •          To make flexible swing joints
  •          To easily and inexpensively repair breaks in rigid PVC pipe
  •         To easily route under or over obstacles that would usually require multiple cuts of rigid PVC pipe (use fewer fittings, less gluing, less hassle)
  •         Where design considerations might require low flow, low pressure laterals to be snaked or looped
  •          To carry irrigation water to interior and exterior planters, arbors, waterfalls, etc.
