Semi-rigid water pipes
« on: April 27, 2019, 01:38:29 PM »
I saw semi rigid bright colour water pipes at a couple of the camping show
Are they any good and where can you buy them?

Hi,
   They are brilliant, easy to use, and algae does not seem to grow in them.
I have pressure tested them to 1000kPa, way over their rating and no problems. (Just in case a wrong position of taps put mains pressure on my system.)
Cheers

When you use them, make sure you have a proper plastic pipe cutter. You can also get little exterior clips if you are worried about vibration.

We use it all the time at work running 120psi air, hot water up to 90 degrees and cold water, plenty of constant movement, never have trouble with it, used it in my last two camper builds without trouble. As Keith said use either a sharp box cutter or get a proper cutter for it, you can get cheap ones that are about the size of a matchbox, which is what I use because you can get them into tight places
