Installation materials

Drilling Supplies UK stocks and supplies high-quality installation pipework that is manufactured in PVC and HDPE materials and flush jointed to aid easy installation. The pipework comes in standard 1-mm slots and slotted variations with 1- or 2-mm slots. We supply 1- or 3-metre lengths as standard. We stock all ancillary products to suit all sizes of pipe, including bungs, screw caps, push caps, gas valves and couplings.

HDPE and PVC pipework

Our installation pipework is manufactured in PVC and HDPE materials and all is flush jointed, making it easy to install. The pipework, which can be manufactured to various lengths, comes in plain (well casing) and slotted (well screen) of standard 1-mm slots. HDPE is used widely for groundwater monitoring and contaminated soil remediation and is highly resistant to chemicals in landfills and on contaminated land. We stock all ancillary products to suit all sizes of pipe, including bungs, screw caps, push caps, gas valves, couplings and Bourdon pressure gauges.

HDPE and PVC pipe accessories
We have a wide range of accessories to fit various HDPE and PVC pipe sizes, including

  • gas bungs (with or without valve)
  • double gas bungs (with two valves)
  • end push caps
  • end push gas taps (with valve)
  • end push double gas taps (with two valves)
  • screw in caps
  • screw cap with Bourdon pressure gauge
  • push couplings.

Bourdon pressure gauges and couplings
Bourdon pressure gauges are used for monitoring gas pressure build-up during gas installations. These are fitted to screw-on caps of any size, which are then attached to the end of a pipe to take a pressure reading. The gauges are available to measure up to 30 psi or 60 psi.

Our two types of couplings are custom made. For example, for a crossover, if you were changing the size of a pipe from 19 mm to 33 mm, we provide either a male or female coupling/crossover. We also have a coupling for damaged or cut pipes. We have these for various sizes of pipe.
