HDPE Pipe technical guidance (High quality Polyethylene Pipes)

Is it necessary to inspect periodically the PE pipe?

Quick access

Periodic inspection of PE pipe is not normally required, but reference should be made to national or local codes of practice and preventative maintenance programmes. In critical locations, e.g. above ground installations, it may be necessary to implement a periodic inspection programme to determine the condition of the pipe, pipe supports and other associated structures. The frequency of the inspection should be set by a risk-based approach.
