What is a PVC Pipe?
A Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipe is a versatile plastic tube widely used for drainage, water supply and irrigation. Its properties include high durability, flexibility, ductility, malleability and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions.
PVC pipes offer superior stiffness and durability compared to other plastic piping and eliminates the need for transition fittings. On top of that, PVC pipes limit long-term deformation under soil load. If you're looking for fusible PVC pipe installation for your project in BC, please contact Ironman Directional Drilling.
Applications and Uses of PVC Pipes in BC
Due to their durability and lightweight nature, PVC pipes are versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, including:
Distribution of drinking water
Collection and disposal of wastewater

Protection of electrical cables
How Does Fusible PVC Installation Work?
PVC fusion work is done on-site by our technicians with industry-standard fusion equipment. We have the equipment to work on several different diameters of piping, and each fusion joint takes approximately 1.5 to 2 minutes per diameter inch to be completed. By fusing PVC directly together, it can be used in both pressure and non-pressure situations in the water, sewer, electrical, industrial and telecommunications industries.
Fusible PVC in Kamloops, Kelowna, Salmon Arm, and surrounding areas is a cost-saving trenchless method that has a variety of applications. It eliminates virtually all gasket joints and provides for a larger flow area. By using our directional drilling methods, we also do not have to use traditional trench methods for installation. This limits the amount of disruption on-site during installation. Fusible PVC also comes in various sizes, from 3 inches through 36 inches.
Benefits of Installing Fusible PVC
Fusible PVC pipes are one of the most popular options for trenchless installation. They are widely used for wastewater treatment, electrical and telecommunication purposes. Fusible PVC pipes are leak-free and less prone to sag as they have stronger walls. Also, their pull force capacity is better than high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes.Here are a few reasons why PVC pipes are popular among our clients in BC:
PVC pipes are scratch and corrosion-resistant.
They have high strength and durability.
PVC pipes have a low installation cost.
The disinfectants in water don’t harm PVC pipes.
PVC pipes are very lightweight and flexible.
Their properties do not wither over time.
PVC pipes are eco-friendly and can be recycled.

PVC Pipe Installation in BC | FAQ
How Long Do PVC Pipes Last?
If installed properly, most PVC pipes can last up from 50 to 100 years. Even in high-pressure scenarios, PVC pipes can last more than 70 years.
Can UV Light Affect PVC Pipes?
Apart from faded appearance, UV light doesn’t have any significant side effects on PVC pipes.
What’s the Maximum Recommended Depth for Underground PVC Pipe Installation?
The maximum burial depth is the depth to which a pipe can be buried without deflecting more than 7.5% in gravity sewers. Some localities require a maximum pipe deflection of 5%, regardless of pipe type. The maximum burial depth is determined by several factors, including pipe stiffness, bedding material and compaction, along with the presence of any additional materials or load above ground.
