Here's a time and money saver...
A 132 foot bridge in the Region of Peel, Ontario was spanned this weekend using a single piece of insulated,
fusible PVC pipe. This "all-at-once" installation saves tens of thousands versus traditional, old-fashioned installations.
Traditional construction techniques often require that the pipe be hoisted up in sections, welded in place over several weeks, and then wrapped in insulation. PVC is much lighter and both faster and easier to install.
The Mayor of the municipality, Marilyn Morrison, says the Bolton Feedermain project on Highway 50 is as important to her community of Caledon 'as the Olympics were to London.' Reports from the field say the pipe passed pressure testing immediately after installation.
