    Are plastic pipes suitable to use with radiators?

    Plumbers

    Hi all,
    We’ve had some pipes replaced recently by a professional plumber to resolve some problems. Although, the issues have been resolved, I’ve since noticed the pipes themselves are plastic – I have some concern about this as these are pipes connected directly and indirectly to the radiators and the boiler.
    Given the heat that could be involved, this is a concern to me – is this normal to have plastic piping used like this nowadays?

    "Yes, this is normal practice although I would recommend having any visible pipes in copper."

    "Hi There Plastic pipes to radiators are perfectly OK. However, plastic should not be connected directly to boiler. These should be in copper for distance-check with manufacturer- before changing to plastic.

    "Yes, plastic pipes are used, but most plumbers use copper if the pipes can be seen as looks tidier."
