Apa Perbedaan Pipa Besi dan Pipa PVC?

downloadPipa menjadi salah satu alternatif yang digunakan oleh banyak orang untuk menyalurkan air, entah itu air bersih ataupun air limbah. Dalam hal ini, pipa yang digunakan dua di antaranya pipa besi dan pipa PVC. Kedua pipa ini masing-masing memiliki kelebihan dan kekurangan, baik itu pada harga, ketahanan maupun pemasangannya. Apakah Anda ingin menggunakan pipa tersebut? Jika iya, alangkah baiknya jika mengetahui lebih jelas perbedaan antara kedua pipa ini agar Anda bisa memilihnya dengan tepat. Yuk, simak uraiannya berikut ini:

Harga

Pipa besi memiliki harga yang relatif tinggi ketimbang pipa PVC. Mengapa demikian? Pipa besi bahannya dihasilkan dari baja sehingga tahan terhadap api, sedangkan pipa PVC bahannya dari plastik dan dapat menuai bila terkena panas. Hal ini lah yang umumnya dapat mempengaruhi harga pipa besi relatif lebih tinggi dibandingkan pipa PVC.

Ketahanan

Perbedaan pipa besi dan pipa PVC juga terletak pada ketahanannya. Pipa besi lebih kokoh, tidak mudah patah, pecah dan bocor. Sementara itu, pipa PVC cenderung mudah pecah, bocor dan tidak tahan lama. Namun, pipa besi cenderung mudah berkarat sedang PVC tidak. Bila pipanya berkarat padahal digunakan untuk penyaluran air bersih bukan tidak mungkin bisa membahayakan kesehatan.

Pemasangan

Pemasangan kedua pipa ini juga cukup berbeda. Pipa besi pemasangannya lebih ribet ketimbang pipa PVC karena harus dilas terlebih dahulu apabila ada pipa yang akan disambungkan. Sementara itu untuk pipa PVC cukup memasang dengan menggunakan alat-alat penyambung, seperti socket, knee, tee, sock drat luar & dalam, dan lain-lain. Tinggal dibersihkan tempat penyambungannya maka pipa PVC dapat dipasangkan.

Pipa besi dan PVC umumnya memiliki masing-masing kelebihan dan kekurangan. Agar Anda bisa memilih pipa yang tepat, sesuaikan dengan kebutuhan Anda, apakah untuk penyaluran air besih, pembuangan air, atau untuk perlindungan kabel listrik.

Apa Keuntungan Menggunakan Pipa Besi?

pipa-stainless-steelPipa besi yang digunakan untuk penyaluran air kini kian diminati oleh banyak orang untuk menggunakannya. Meskipun pipa ini harganya relatif mahal dibandingkan pipa PVC bukan menjadi hambatan untuk dimiliki karena pada dasarnya pipa besi memiliki banyak kelebihan. Tak heran bila dari zaman dahulu hingga saat ini orang-orang banyak menggunakan pipa ini. Adapun beberapa kelebihan yang didapat, yakni:

Tidak mudah bocor

Pipa besi memiliki ketahanan yang kuat sehingga tidak mudah bocor, patah, ataupun pecah. Bayangkan bila pipa tidak tahan lama, misalnya pecah karena kejatuhan benda keras tentunya harus diganti dengan pipa yang baru lagi. Bukan tidak mungkin modal yang dikeluarkan menjadi dua kali lipat.

Tidak memuai kena panas

Pipa besi juga tidak menuai bila terkena panas, berbeda halnya dengan pipa PVC yang tidak tahan terhadap api. Dalam hal ini, penggunaan pipa besi tentunya akan lebih tahan lama. Ingat, bila pipa menuai bila terkena panas, besar kemungkinan dapat mengurangi fungsi dari pipa itu sendiri.

Tidak mudah bengkok

Pipa besi juga tidak mudah bengkok sehingga tidak menghambat saluran air. Bayangkan bila saluran air mampet, tentunya bisa berakibat fatal. Bukan tidak mungkin harus dilakukan pengecekan dan perbaruan ulang agar pipa dapat digunakan kembali.

Dari uraian di atas, menggunakan pipa besi memiliki banyak kelebihan karena bisa menghemat waktu, tenaga dan uang. Memang, dilihat dalam pemasangannya pipa ini cukup ribet karena harus dilas bila ada pipa yang harus disambung. Namun, setelah pipa dipasang, pipa sudah dapat digunakan dengan baik.
