The article focuses on how to maintain and replace pipe joints using the right pipe joining method. It says that designers and maintenance personnel should plan early on the easy access of the pipe joining system over their lifetime. It mentions that Victaulic mechanical pipe joints can be used because it allows more time-efficient maintenance procedures due to its two-bolt coupling.
