How is PVC Pipe Used in Aquaculture?by Brook J. i love to write
PVC pipe has been used for many years in a whole host of industries. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a synthetic resin which is strong, durable and long lasting. It is also the synthetic plastic polymer that is most widely manufactured around the world and you can find it being used extensively in numerous aquaculture applications.
PVC Pipe for Home Aquariums
PVC pipe is used extensively for home aquariums as it can be used with fresh water, marine and tropical fish. It is most commonly used in larger home aquariums where the pump or sump is hidden in the cabinet below the fish tank. The piping is used to transport clean water into the tank and dirty water out of the tank to ensure the health of the fish at all times.
Again, PVC pipe and fittings is durable and strong and can withstand the outdoors, making it ideal for ponds. The piping here is used to transport the filtered water from the pond pump into the pond with ease and without risk of leaks or damage.
Have you ever wondered how these large public aquariums manage to maintain their huge fish tanks, housing everything from sharks to clown fish? They have huge filtering systems hidden out of sight which rely on PVC pipes to transport the water. This protects and maintains the health of these fish on a daily basis.
PVC pipe has also become a leading choice for those who are trying their hand at aquaponics, which relies on the fish to feed the plants to promote organic growth of more plants. Clever hey?
