The complete potable water supply solution

The GPS PE Blue range is the most complete solution for potable water supply, comprising a range of high performance polyethylene (PE) pipes, complete with a wide variety of fully matched fittings options and boundary boxes.

GPS PE Blue pipes are flexible, lightweight and corrosion-free, and can be used to create a robust, fully-welded system with butt-fusion or electrofusion jointing for maximum joint integrity and an extensive service life. GPS PE Blue system offers excellent lifetime cost savings compared to traditional materials, and with BS EN 12201 approval across the range, it provides a solution you can rely on for water mains, communication and service pipes for the reliable transportation of drinking water. 

Along with Philmac compression fittings, Frialen electrofusion fittings, a wide variety of spigot fittings and the Adjusta boundary box range, we provide a unique and comprehensive system solution for potable water.  Along with the Protecta-Line barrier system for complete protection in contaminated land, and 3C (Clean, Capped, Coiled) pipe to save both time and waste at installation by removing the need for pre-chlorination, it is easy to see why GPS PE Blue is trusted by the leading water utilities, engineering and construction companies as the ideal solution for new installations, pipeline replacement and rehabilitation.

GPS PE Blue pipe

GPS PE Blue pipe is a flexible and lightweight solution for the transportation of drinking water, and can be installed using traditional open-cut techniques and trenchless methods such as directional drilling. The high quality polymer allows for a fully pressurised pipeline system with a wide range of sizes and pressure ratings available as standard and other bespoke diameters, lengths and pressure ratings available to order.

  • Flexible and lightweight for ease of installation
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Minimum maintenance requirements
  • Suitable for trenchless installation methods
  • Available in straight lengths and coils
  • Up to 16 bar pressure rating
  • BS EN 12201, WRAS and DWI approved
  • Sizes 20mm to 1200mm

3C - clean, capped, coiled

GPS PE Blue 3C is a unique factory-sealed clean PE pipe coil which is approved by the Secretary of State for installation without pre-chlorination. It allows installers to proceed to immediate commissioning, significantly reducing the overall installation time and costs. 3C pipe can be supplied with a factory-fitted integral towing head, ready to attach a towing shackle on site. The 3C with towing head ensures the pipe bore remains clean throughout the whole installation process and the risk of a towing head failure is minimised. 3C is kinder to the environment, as it cuts down on the number of chlorination treatments required, reducing chemical usage and waste disposal of large volumes of disinfected water.

  • Saves time in installation and commissioning
  • Significantly reduces the use of water and chlorine
  • Significantly reduces waste
  • Available with factory-fitted towing head
  • Up to 16 bar pressure rating
  • BS EN 12201, WRAS and DWI approvals
  • Sizes 63mm to 180mm
