Our view :
This pipe is a little tighter than other LDPE but thicker, stronger and more kink resistant. Best used in conjunction with Antelco Single and Double barb 13mm fittings. Please note, this pipe is much harder to work with in cold temperatures and will crack more easily when cool. For easier insertion of fittings, we recommend using a heat gun/paint stripper or hot water to gently warm the ends and ease insertion of barbed fittings. Please be aware this is a semi flexible pipe not a hose, it is designed for punching and fitting connectors into and is usually installed with saddle clamps, hold down stakes or at shallow depth. 13mm is the inner dimension and accepts all our 13mm fittings including Hozelock, Antelco and DN16 generic fittings. This LDPE pipe is not suitable for deep installation and should NOT be used to carry human drinking water. LDPE 13mm PVC Irrigation Pipe 4 Bar Rated Made In The EU This Low-Density-Poly-Ethylene pipe is a thin wall pipe that is great for domestic and commercial irrigation systems. The pipe is flexible, UV stabilised and will resist damage from frost during the winter months, but you should be sure to drain the pipe as expanding water will cause damage. The LDPE 13mm PVC Irrigation Pipe can be punctured with a hole punch for off taking to irrigation. Pipe and length is accurate to within 5%. Whilst we usually charge 99p for a sample of this pipe, just ask for an ‘Antelco pipe sample’ when ordering any of our other products and we will happily include a piece, free of charge.
