HEP2O PROVIDES SAFE, SECURE PLUMBING SOLUTION AT NEW CAPITAL RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

HEP2O PROVIDES SAFE, SECURE PLUMBING SOLUTION AT NEW CAPITAL RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

For the fast track fit out of 255 apartments at a stunning new multi-million pound residential development in London’s King’s Cross, a plumbing system that could be installed quickly, had a proven track record and came with a comprehensive guarantee was required. Contractors SES specified the market leading Hep2O Push-Fit plumbing system, a solution that has a 50-year guarantee and enabled the contractor to fit up to nine apartments per week.

Building P1 is part of a 67-acre King’s Cross mixed-use development featuring offices, homes, shops, hotels, leisure and community facilities. With such a huge project to fulfil, clients Argent and Network Rail needed to ensure the homes were habitable as quickly as possible. In order to facilitate their requirement, contractor SES selected Hep2O Push-Fit pipework to link Heating Interface Units to kitchen and bathrooms throughout the building.

The Push-Fit Hep2O includes unique features that enable quick and easy installation with a secure fitting. When pipework or fitting is securely in place it emits a ‘rumble’ signal to denote a perfect fit. In another innovative security feature, the Push-Fit’s fittings are easily adjusted with a HepKey demounting system to prevent tampering or accidental demounting to ensure the installation is totally secure. The system also works superbly well with copper and plastic, making it ideal for a variety of applications across both new build and refurbishment projects

Chris Rose, SES Senior Project Engineer, commented: “With traditional copper pipework, even with a near perfect installation, you’re going to get leaks. We’ve not had a single leak with Hep2O. It was very quick and easy to install and because it is plastic it gave us a lot more flexibility. It meant we were able to meet the strict deadline and complete up to nine apartments per week.”

Hep2O pipework ensured a straightforward installation due to being lightweight, easy to cut and handle. The pipework can withstand point loadings and if necessary, be installed by just one person. As a result, SES comfortably completed the Building P1 project to their 12-month deadline.

Chris Rose added: “It’s the first time we’ve used Hep2O on a major project, but we’ll be drawing on our experience at King’s Cross to use it again on similar projects. It was fantastic, and so much quicker to install than copper pipework.”
Hep2O should still be insulated, but once in place keeps its flexibility in temperatures as low as –15°C, which significantly reduces the risk of burst pipes, making it ideal for new build and renovation projects.

Beat the freeze this winter with Hep2O

December 2015

Beat the freeze this winter with Hep2O

In recent years, the UK has experienced far greater weather extremes than we’ve been used to, which has resulted in record-breaking flooding and incomparable nationwide freezes.

Weather experts warn us there will be 36 days of snow or ice across the winter months, as well as harsh temperature lows of -16°C, which could see the inevitable return of plumbing problems and potentially serious damage.

During these prolonged spells of extremely cold weather, boiler manufacturers will receive thousands of calls every day with customers reporting boiler breakdowns – with a frozen condensate line the main culprit. It’s a familiar problem for householders, plumbers and the industry, but this familiarity doesn’t make the inconvenience, and inevitable cost, any less difficult.

Recent research shows that it typically costs £344 to repair a broken down boiler, but one in ten homes with boiler problems will actually pay more than £1,000. So with future freezing temperatures unavoidable and only 34% of those homeowners surveyed saying they had the money to pay for such an emergency, how can you help minimise that nightmare situation?
Responding to extreme temperatures to reduce risk of plumbing problems

With high-efficiency condensing boilers that are routed externally, there will always be a vulnerability to extreme temperatures. Of course, a simple answer is to avoid taking the condensate line outside –connecting it to an internal waste run or soil stack – but this isn’t always possible.

So if there’s really no alternative to the external placement of a condensate pipe, what precautions can you take to save everyone a lot of hassle?

The BS 6798, Specification for installation and maintenance of gas-fired boilers, recommends that externally-run condensate drainage pipe should:

Keep the length of condensate drainage pipe outside the home as short as possible and not more than 3m, unless it is insulated

Increase any external condensate drainage pipe to a minimum of 32cm, nominal diameter, to reduce the risk of freezing. This applies if the boiler does not include a siphon.

This is all good practice, but our additional recommendations for any externally routed condensate pipework are:

A minimum pipe size 32mm: this is regardless of pipe length or whether the boiler includes a siphon or not.
Replace any external 21.5mm pipework with 32mm and insulate the pipework: this will further reduce the risk with minimal difference to cost
Be especially careful to insulate vulnerable points;
Where water may slow down. For example, at 90° (replace with degree symbol) knuckle bends positioned where the pipe exits the wall cavity and drops to an external drainage point
At termination points. For example, at a condensate connection point to an external stack

And, of course, wherever you’re installing new condensate pipework:

Keep any changes of direction to an absolute minimum
Avoid horizontal runs wherever possible.

Choose our Hep2O plumbing system this winter

Leaving the best tip for last, many notable industry experts recommend using our very own Hep2O plastic push-fit system to better resist the effects of the cold.

As the only plastic system accepted by British Gas for use by their engineers, Hep2O demonstrates the quality and reliability necessary for extreme cold. Hep2O should still be insulated, but once in place keeps its flexibility in temperatures as low as –15°C, which significantly reduces the risk of burst pipes.
How does our Hep2O plumbing system cope in sub-zero temperatures?

Gareth Samuel, Product Manager and Hep2O expert, says: ‘We can’t change the weather, but we can change how we react to it. Hep2O is designed, manufactured and tested to the highest standards with all products fully certified and guaranteed for 50 years. It’s great even in sub-zero temperatures as, unlike rigid systems, Hep2O pipe can accept a level of expansion without fracturing and will resume its original size after a thaw.

Furthermore, as Hep2O’s Polybutylene (PB) ‘Straight Coil Pipe’ can be easily threaded through joists and around bends, the number of joints – compared to a copper system – is vastly reduced so removing another potential point of vulnerability during the winter. The system’s inherent durability and resistance to corrosion and cold weather make it ideal for beating the freeze this winter and for many more in the future.”
