Monitoring Pipe, Environmental Pipe and Slotted Pipe

Monitoring Pipe is a high-quality Schedule 40 PVC product for use in ground water monitoring. The Environmental Pipe equivalent is a flush-threaded pipe that assembles without the need for solvent cements. When used for ground water monitoring, solvent cements can interfere with measurements. Our Environmental Pipe is designed to eliminate potential issues that can occur with chemicals.

IPEX Slotted Pipe has been developed for use in residential and commercial water wells applications, and a variety of slotting options are available based on location, soil conditions and flow rate requirements. Products are available in numerous sizes and manufactured using the highest quality materials.
