Philmac poly liner

Hi @vantage ,
Doing a large water project soon so looking at prices of pipes and fittings and looked at Totalpipes on your suggestion having never heard of them . Not sure how , but they are quite a lot cheaper than anyone else to the point you think it must be sub standard or something !!?
Just wondered if you could confirm the stuff is good ?
Eg 25mm mdpe water pipe , 100m £79 25mm tap £24.56
McveighParker £100.70 £61.36
BP plastics £94.02 £36.95
MVFarmers £96 £38.25
I got 32 mm for the same as those outrageous prices
Depends who last had the box! 🤬

Yeah you really don’t want to go there, I don’t rate their management much either


These are the guys to use. I’ve never found anyone cheaper for the 32mm range, ever, in about 8 years.
What price did you pay , those prices seem way more than I paid unless it's including vat
Don't make sense , I had 4 quotes all under £1 meter for 32 mm they are £1.29 meter

How recently? It seems expensive to what I was paying last year but I know it was going up a lot all the time. The bloke I bought ours from said he was getting embarrassed telling customers of the constant price rises.

Prices have shot up.

I tend to type in to google what I want, pick the top 5 searches and Chuck a few items in the basket on each site then compare. Takes 5 minutes, can save £100’s.

From memory total pipes were about 2.5% cheaper than most, about 20% on JDP and the like

I use both philmac and sometimes plasson depending where I’m working and what local supplier has in stock.
Plasson stop taps are better quality in my opinion though.
(Just sorting a pissy plasson this morning on a trough 🧐)

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
