In our often-frantic daily routines, we rarely stop to think about something as simple as the water we consume daily. How does water get to our home? How do we know the water is clean and safe? Who’s responsible for providing this critical need? With May 7th through the 13th, 2023, being Drinking Water Week, this #IronStrong Blog highlights the importance of water workers and simply sends a much-deserved thank you!
It’s National Engineers Week (EWeek).

As the observance comes to an end, this #IronStrong Blog spotlights the importance of engineers and how they impact the waterworks industry.
As a manufacturer of Ductile iron pipe (DI pipe), we often field questions from water professionals regarding DI pipe, its uses, and how to install it properly. We even receive numerous questions about alternate materials, their differences, their uses, and the best choice for the application. And of course, when you ask, we answer…honestly, even when the answer doesn’t include Ductile iron. In this Iron Strong Blog, we’ll cover a few of our frequently asked questions (FAQ) and provide some solutions. We will continue with this FAQ series in the upcoming months.
