Stoneware pipes are made of clay.

Stone ware pipes are corrosion resistance.

The Stoneware pipes are manufactured by a process by firing & baking at 11000c and later on proceed for salt treatment and finally left in space for curing.

Sewage (not fresh) is acidic in nature and is composed of nearly 99% water.

Therefore, Stoneware is best suitable to avoid the acid attack and water percolation.
