The argument for plastics

Plastic is employed within sustainable water solutions as its benefits far outweigh those of concrete or clay. It is less likely to leak, shrink, crack or deposit residue into the water stream.

Reduced fixing or changing makes it more sustainable - from a cost and environmental viewpoint. Additionally, plastic is lighter and easier to transport, offers more scope for cost-effective building design, and is more resilient to chemicals and corrosion.

  • Less leakage
