Common Pipe Failures
Below are the most common pipe failures and the causes of those failures. CPVC failures are not limited to these particular problems.
A larger issue with CPVC is that it is not chemically resistant to all chemicals; this leads to drain and drainage system failures.
Fire Sprinkler Piping
Fire sprinklers with plastic pipe systems typically fail due to internal and external exposure to incompatible chemicals.
CPVC typically works well for hydronic applications however, leakes in a local heat exchanger can destroy entire systems.
Potable water systems and fittings utilizing CPVC tend to degradate and often fail after only a few years of service.
