Pipe Distribution

Plastic pipe. Steel pipe. Concrete pipe. Cast iron pipe. The industry has strong opinions on which type of pipe rules the lot; and, while we here at W&WD are not partial to any one pipe, we do cover them all. Seventy-three percent of W&WD subscribers have the authority to specify, approve or buy pipe and fittings; so read on for the latest news and features on pipe and distribution systems.
