Foamcore Piping System – A perfect product for Underground Drainage System
We all dream of a home where we have the comforts and facilities leading to a happy and healthy life. For that an efficient drainage system is what you need, which ensures that the waste water is smoothly flown out to keep your surroundings clean. In our previous blog, we spoke about what are Foamcore piping systems and the types of thickness the pipes are available in. Today, we shall tell you about the types of joints that are available along with its range.
When you are building an underground drainage network, it is essential to understand the dynamics of the area where the pipes are going to be laid. As these pipes are available in 2 types namely, rubber ring (RR) and solvent cement joints (SJ). Both joints have their own advantages. Rubber Ring is fast and demountable, whereas as Solvent Joint is permanent. Solvent Joint pipes should be used in areas where there is possibility of continuous heavy loads on the pipes.
Trubore Foamcore pipes are available from 110 mm to 315 mm sizes. They are also provided in 2 types of lengths – 3 metre and 6 metre. An underground drainage system should be built in such a way that it remains out of sight and does not emit a foul odor. Foamcore Pipes are installed in residential and commercial spaces where sewage control is vital.
Let’s have a look at the advantages of an Underground Drainage System:
- Lighter in weight and easy to install
Unlike cement or cast-iron or clay drainage pipes that are too heavy to carry, Foamcore Pipes are light in weight and does not require heavy machines for installation or transportation. It takes less effort to install and at the same ensures quicker installation.
As these pipes are made from PVC material, they are long lasting and are rust-proof. Its smooth bore allows free flow of waste water and avoids choke ups.
- Minimizes leakage due to lesser joints
The length of Foamcore Pipes plays an important role in its efficiency. As we have already informed you about the length they are provided in, these pipes require lesser joints in comparison to other material drainage pipes. Fewer the number of joints, reduces the chance of leakage.
As by now you know that the outer and inner layer of the pipe provide load bearing capacity while the middle foam layer gives firmness to the overall pipe structure. These pipes have an inbuilt ibeam structure which comes into play when the pipe comes under heavy load stress, Foamcore pipes due to the foam layer gains the structural load shape and regains its normal shape once the load is off it.
So, the next time you’re planning to build an efficient drainage network, choose Trubore Foamcore Piping Systems for all the above right reasons.
Better the underground drainage pipe, Healthier the surroundings
In today’s day and age, sanitation has taken utmost priority for people around. As Indians, it is important for each of us to understand the importance of cleanliness and its good effects on our society. With this in mind, Government had launched Swachh Bharat Mission in 2014 on the birth anniversary of our father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi. India still has a long way to go in this mission however India is inching closer to being called a clean country day by day.
One important factor that helps in keeping any area clean is the underground drainage network. Poor the network, poorer the sanitation around which leads to poorest health conditions. Hence it is mandatory for any municipal corporation, builder, contractors etc., to ensure that the right quality pipes are installed at the right areas so that drainage is efficient.
Lets deep dive and talk about one such products which indeed helps in building an efficient underground drainage system which is Trubore Foamcore Piping System. Foamcore pipes are triple layer pipes wherein the outer and inner layer are made of PVC material, whereas the middle layer is made of specially formulated foamed PVC. The outer and inner layer provide load bearing capacity while the middle foam layer gives firmness to the overall pipe structure.
Yes, I know, the above information was a bit technical. However, it is essential for us to understand what the pipes are made of to understand its benefits. We all know as a matter of fact that underground piping systems face a lot of pressure from various things like soil pressure, roots of trees and loads from vehicles on road etc., or other heavier objects which leads to bursting of pipes. Foamcore Pipes because of the PVC material can easily manage this kind of pressure moreover the foam layer in the middle helps in smoothly absorbing the pressure.
Now lets talk about the wall thickness that these pipes come with. As all PVC underground drainage pipes, Foamcore Pipes come in 3 types of wall thickness which are SN2, SN4 and SN8 classes. A user must understand the usage of this thickness as per the area where he is going to install the pipes. Generally thicker pipes are utilised where soil exerts a lot of pressure on the pipe surfaces.
There is a lot more to talk on this and shall cover it in depth in my upcoming blogs, however for now, when you think about building an underground drainage, Think about Trubore Foamcore Piping Systems.
The use of pipes is very important in fields and thus, for agriculture. Pipes ensure the optimal use of water. Most agricultural activities require safe and effective water systems like agricultural irrigation pipes to maximize the crop yield. One other parameter that declares and validates the vital role of pipes in fields is their ability to resist drastic pressure changes.
Let us discuss some pipes manufactured in genius ways that can be used effectively in/for agriculture.

As a result, right from irrigation to the final stages of harvesting, pipes act as a catalyst in not just one, but various agricultural processes. Turns out, pipes need to be chosen wisely and a piping system should be established smartly to ensure quality.
There are various types of pipes available in the market for plumbing at residential or commercial buildings. The availability of different pipes confuses the consumer at times, and they end up choosing the wrong pipes for plumbing. The most commonly used pipes in Indian homes are CPVC Pipes and GI Pipes.
Galvanised Iron (GI) Pipes
Galvanised Iron (GI) Pipes are made using mild steel strips of Low Carbon Steel Coils. The steel is processed to be formed into circular shape. The ends of the pipes are welded and made into the size and dimension required. The pipes go through the pressure and leakage test before it reaches the market to be installed in our homes.
GI Pipes are used for plumbing as well as sewage. As the pipes are made up of Iron, they are used structural, engineering and automotive purposes.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) Pipes
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) Pipes as the name suggests is produced from chlorination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin which makes it flexible and resistant to temperate from 0℃ to 93℃. Trubore piping systems are one of the major producers of CPVC pipes in India. Their products are manufactured using the world’s best Japanese material and technology.
CPVC Pipes are used in residential & commercial buildings. Due to its proven hot & cold-water performance, CPVC Pipes are also used for public utilities, swimming pools & industrial applications.
CPVC Pipes vs GI Pipes
While both CPVC Pipes and GI Pipes has its own benefits, it is really important to know which pipes are best when it comes to plumbing. GI pipes were traditionally used by builders and architects due to its durable nature. When CPVC pipes were introduced in the market, consumers identified major advantages of the pipes and started using it extensively for Indoor and Outdoor purposes.
There are some major advantages of using CPVC pipes. As compared to GI pipes, CPVC Pipes for homes are durable and are low on maintenance. Another drawback with GI Pipe is that it is not corrosion-resistant. As the pipes are made of iron, a constant flow of water tends to rust GI pipes which can even cause bacterial growth. CPVC Pipes are corrosion resistant and there are very low chances of bacterial growth. Also, the formation builds up inside the GI pipes due to corrosion causes loss of water pressure. That is not the case in CPVC Pipes the pressure of water remains uniform throughout.
CPVC Pipes are flexible and can be easily installed through cold welding whereas GI requires manpower as well as long hours for installation. One needs to take a lot of care while the installation of GI pipes as incorrect installation can cause breakage and leakage problem. Cutting and joining CPVC Pipes is easy as it comes with easily available joints that can be installed easily.
The prices of both the pipes vary. GI Pipes are expensive while the CPVC plumbing system is cost-effective. CPVC pipes can be easily transportable which makes you save on your transportation cost. These pipes are said to last for 50 years. Therefore, it can be safely said that CPVC pipes are the best pipes for Indian homes.
