Pipes and Tubes

The plumbing system is a very complicated network that is assembled from small "building blocks", components that enable the transportation of substances. The general idea behind having small segments rather than a complex consistent system is twofold. First of all, building tubes of great length would be economically inefficient and technologically challenging. Second, a minor malfunction would stop the whole system, causing a lot of problems. Having small segments as components is far more practical and convenient. These elements are presented as pipes, tubes, and hoses. These are the basic parts of any plumbing system. Mega Depot offers a great range of tubes and pipes at the best prices.

Pipes and tubes define objects that are fairly similar, however, they can be used in different situations. Pipes are usually rigid hollow cylindrical constructions made of metal, concrete, plastic, or other materials. They are used to transport large amounts of liquids/gases over a great distance. Pipes (especially public service ones) often run underground, therefore, they are manufactured from materials that are very resistant to any type of damage. However, pipes are not limited to public services and may be used in other applications as well.

The word "tubes" can sometimes be used as a synonym for "pipes", but there is a minor, yet important disparity. Pipes have different engineering requirements, they are produced from lighter and more flexible materials. There are bendable and non-bendable tubes, and they are often used as supplementary elements in various devices and systems.
