Are you confused whether to choose reinforced concrete pipes over plastic?

The decision whether you choose reinforced concrete pipes over plastic pipes can be a tricky one. Each material has advantages and disadvantages. When reinforced concrete pipe arrives on site, its structural strength is known and installation is relatively easy. Plastic pipe must be assembled on site and the structural integrity must be tested. The performance of reinforced concrete pipe is known, whereas plastic pipe is a new material and its long-term performance is unknown.

Although the raw costs of plastic pipes are cheaper than concrete pipes, plastic pipes incur other costs including engineered backfill; on-site inspection and post-installation laser testing. While reinforced concrete pipes are currently more popular than plastic piping, the final decision must take into account the application alongside a host of other factors. Before making the final decision, consider the following:

Purpose of application
Expected longevit
Long-term performance
Geographic location and logistics
Environmental considerations

Cost of raw materials
Maintenance and repair costs 
Cost of installation
Ease of installation
