Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Low Density Tubing is the most popular tubing choice for use in shallow monitoring wells. LDPE tubing is more flexible than HDPE and is less likely to develop a kink. The difference in rigidity between LDPE and HDPE does not have a significant impact on the performance of the inertial pump in shallow wells.

  • produced from virgin polyethylene resins
  • does not contain any UV stabilizers*
  • coils of tubing are individually poly bagged and are stored in sealed boxes, protected from UV light sources
  • Foot Valves are guaranteed to properly fit onto and into tubing.

*Leaving non UV protected polyethylene tubing exposed to sunlight or a UV light source will result in the material becoming brittle. The material will then fracture very easily. Keep you tubing protected from these light sources until you’re ready to install it in your well and it will last for many years.
