Here are some Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I leave polyethylene pipe exposed outside?

Oil Creek Plastics does not recommend leaving polyethylene exposed to sunlight. All of our pipe and tubing will come with UV inhibitors that will protect the properties of the material for a short time but it is recommended that the pipe be buried as soon as possible.

Q: Can all polyethylene pipes be fused together?

Polyethylene material is fuseable but the sizing dimension may prohibit using fusion fittings. Most fusion fittings are made for OD controlled pipe. ID controlled pipe is designed to be used with barbed insert fittings and clamps. If you want to fuse ID controlled pipe you will have to get special tools made to fit the dimensions of the pipe.
