Irrigation Show 2017: Joining Pipe in a “Growing” Industry

Posted on October 25, 2017

The health of our farms, landscaping, and even our golf courses is dependent on irrigation systems.  Irrigation systems involve supplying, or transporting, water to areas where it’s needed to foster plant growth.

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is durable, light-weight, corrosion-resistant, flexible, long-lasting, and economical, making it an ideal material for irrigation lines.  The most efficient way to join HDPE?  Dave from Stone Hill Contracting, who has been working with HDPE for ten years, breaks it down:

Register for this year’s Irrigation Show and be sure to stop by booth #1063 to check out how Victaulic® solutions can simplify your irrigation needs.
