    Connection of HDPE PIpe 

    Explanation
    Electro fusion welding is a method used to join HDPE pipes. It involves the use of specialized fittings that have built-in heating elements. The ends of the pipes are inserted into the fittings, and an electric current is applied to heat the heating elements. This causes the pipe material to melt and fuse together, creating a strong and leak-proof joint. Electro fusion welding is commonly used in applications where the pipes need to withstand high pressure or when a secure and reliable connection is required.

    Connection of cast iron pipe.

    Explanation
    The three options listed, compressed gasket, hubless joint, and caulked joints, are all different methods of connecting cast iron pipes. A compressed gasket is a type of rubber gasket that is compressed between two pipe ends to create a watertight seal. A hubless joint, on the other hand, uses a rubber sleeve and stainless steel clamps to connect the pipes. Caulked joints involve packing oakum (a fibrous material) into the joint and then sealing it with lead or a similar material. These three methods are commonly used in plumbing to ensure secure connections between cast iron pipes.

    Connection of PVC Pipe.

    Explanation
    Solvent cement is used for the connection of PVC pipes. It is a type of adhesive that is specifically designed for joining PVC pipes together. Solvent cement works by chemically bonding the PVC pipe and fittings, creating a strong and durable connection. It is applied to the outside of the pipe and the inside of the fitting, and when the two are pressed together, the solvent cement melts the surfaces, fusing them together. This creates a watertight and leak-free connection, making solvent cement an essential component in the installation of PVC pipes.
