The “50th” anniversary issue of the EADIPS®/ FGR® annual journal has been an occasion to look back over the history of 500 years of drinking water transport and distribution. This area of life is inseparably linked to the traditional material of “cast iron”: it has put its stamp on the development of drinking water supply for half a millennium but, with a constant influx of improvements, optimisations and innovations over this timespan, it has nevertheless remained ever young. The cast iron pipe industry, in collaboration with its users, has always managed to keep abreast of the latest state of the art with a modern and sustainable piping system comprising pipes, fittings and valves.
