I don't know if any of you have drilled through metal pipe before buy it is difficult and takes time and a lot of drill bits to do this much damage. It makes you wonder at the veracity of the facts. Try it for yourself and see how long it takes.

Ductile iron water mains are going the way of the dinosaurs with plastic pipe and HDPE pipe relpacing it on new mains and branches.

OK. Thanks for setting me straight. I guess I am showing my age. Now the article makes sense.

When they drilled holes in the pipeline I was working on, we all thought the same thing. It would take a long time to drill a hole through a metal pipe that was .388 thick. We got a drill with a 3/8 bit and gave it a try. It didn't take long at all.

Wilson Construction has been installing miles and miles of " dinosaur" pipe at Treasure Lake for Aqua. Plastic pipe is not as stable as ductile iron and when installed with anti corrision sleeve ductile iron will last generations.

Many municipalities still require ductile iron as the only choice for their water projects

I wonder if Aqua does this for all the systems they own?
