Your home or business pipeline system has two types of pipes: pressurized and non-pressurized. Knowing the difference between pressurized and non-pressurized pipe can make help you identify any problems and evaluate what kinds of repairs might be needed. These terms refer to the presence of steady pressure within the pipe, which aid in moving waste or water. Each system has its own operations, which gives you the ability choose an option that best fits your needs.
Pressurized pipes create a static pressure when an external stimulus, like flushing, has been generated. Non-pressurized pipe relies on pressure that comes from gravity and the weight of the existing amount of water.
Pressurized Pipes Overview
Pressurized pipes are generally less invasive to install in your Ohio home and they can also come with a lower cost. However, they do require additional electricity to power its pumps, which help move the liquid through it. These pipes typically do not require deep trenches. They can be buried at 7.5 feet, just enough so that there is no frost impact. Pressurized pipes generally have an unlimited fluid input and output, and can also transport more than one type of liquid. They can also be installed vertically or horizontally, and come with a host of application options.
Non-pressurized pipes do not require extra electricity, as they use the current amount of water as well as gravity to move the pipe’s contents. When installed, they generally need to be about ten to twelve feet underground. Because of the simplicity of the system, the homeowner may be able to perform maintenance on the pipes and its system. This also allows for the owner or technician to directly measure information such as fluid amount and flow rate.
Both systems have their own functions and virtues. Pressurized pipes need little to no monitoring, but they do require a specialist in the case of a malfunction. Non-pressurized pipes won’t add to your electricity bill because they rely on gravity and water weight to provide pressure.
