||Due to high pressure from underground water and chemicals, a concretemanhole gets thinner with time and cracksresulting to leakages.
||A Thermoplastic manhole has high resistance to water and chemicals. Thermoplastic manholes does not crack and leak, hence, protecting the environment.
|Compatibility with pipes
||A connection between a concrete manhole and a pipe cannot be water tight.
||A plastic pipe and a plastic manhole form a water tight connection.
||Due to its heavy weight, the manhole may crack or break while handling during transportation and assembly.
||The weight of a thermoplastic manhole is about 5% of a concrete manhole, therefore, it’s easy to handle.
||It takes a long time assembling a concrete manhole.
||A thermoplastic manhole gets assembled in a shorter span of time.
||Short life, Requires maintenance.
||Life expectancy is 50 years. It does not require any maintenance during this period.
|Environment and Global Warming
||A concrete manhole emits 33kgs of greenhouse gases per year. This amount is increased to 423 kg per year, if the manhole leaks.
||A plastic manhole emits about 2 kg greenhouse gases per year.
||Seems cheaper in price at the time of purchase. But the ultimate cost rises due to assembly, maintenance expenses.
||Seems expensive at the time of purchase, but is cheaper in the long run with its superior attributes.
