As we all know,the fiberglass pipe is a cost performance choice compare to other tube like pvc or iron pipe.
But why the fiberglass pipe are better than the other.Let’s find out.
1.Fiberglass pipe VS PVC pipe
①The service life under the sunlight of fiberglass pipe is around 15 years,in the other hand,the PVC pipe is around 5years.
②For example,normal size of pipe is Φ20mm.And the fiberglass pipe is 2.31 USD per meter,the PVC pipe is 0.8 USD per meter.
From the above points, the price is basically the same, but why is FRP high cost performance? You need to know that you only need to install it once in 15 years, and the installation fee will save twice.
2.Fiberglass pipe VS Iron pipe
In fact, iron pipes are more expensive than PVC pipes. Although their lifespan is higher than that of FRP pipes, But they are not as cost-effective as FRP pipes.Because their lifespan is basically about 8 years, and they are prone to pipe blockage due to rust. This is why more people are willing to use FRP pipes and PVC pipes.
3.Fiberglass pipe VS ACRYLIC pipe
Needless to say, the acrylic tube actually has advantage. It is indeed better to use the acrylic tube indoors, but if it is in the sun, the acrylic tube can only be used for half a year. Yes, HALF a year. Moreover, the price of acrylic tube is high,so it’s less cost-effective than fiberglass tube.
