There two major types of plastic pipe: the rigid and flexible forms. Depending on the type of plastic it is made of, rigid or firm pipes are used for hot and cold water systems. In order to cut rigid pipes, a hack saw can be used. Solvent cement can easily glue pieces together. A tube cutter that is used for flexible copper pipe is convenient for cutting rigid style plastic pipes. However a specialized blade is demanded - one that is meant for chopping plastic not cast iron or bronze metal.
Plastic pipes do not react to chemicals and electricity. It is also smooth inside ensuring that no corrosion or rusting occurs. Plastic pipes do not rust or corrode, they are \"self cleaning\", lightweight, usually do not sweat or freeze ( even in the cold January Winnipeg Canada wintertime temps), and lastly offer overall excellent water flow rates. Both the plastic and metal pipes have the same diameter. It possible to connect a plastic pipe to an already existing metal pipe system using special fittings and adaptors.
