PVC-U Pipe Competitiveness: A Total Cost of Ownership Approach

The Milan-based consultancy Althesys has conducted a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis comparing unplasticised PVC (PVC-U) to other non-plastic materials for water and sewer pipelines lines. The analysis considered the costs to purchase pipes, install, operate and maintain and dismantle the pipeline. PVC-U pipes show significant economic advantages over ductile iron and glass fibre polyester (GRP) in water lines and concrete or clay in the sewer lines.
