What are the key considerations when managing expansion in above-ground HDPE pipe installations?
- Ensure there is enough space for your pipe to both expand and contract
- When ordering pipe, order additional pipe to manage the expansion.
- Clear the space for the pipe to move of rocks and objects which could potentially damage the pipe
- Use high quality brackets and restrictors
- Meet with Advanced Pipe Systems early in your planning process to ensure a smooth outcome
- Ensure your installation is done right in the first instance, or risk issues down the track
