Special Notes:

  • This is an estimate only and should be treated as such.
  • All pipe sizes are IPS.
  • SDR 11 is used for illustration purposes only; fusion times can vary with changes in wall thickness.
  • Fusions made per hour/day is estimate only. Temperature, weather, equipment & personnel can affect fusion performance.
  • Fusion unit cost per day is the rate charged by Ferguson for a machine capable of fusing corresponding pipe size. Please contact us for current rates.
  • Rental fusion machines are available from the Ferguson on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
  • Crewmen cost per hour is purely estimate. Prices reflect crew of either 2 or 3 people. Please verify labor rates in your specific area.
  • Ferguson offers fusion services at a daily rate per technician. 
  • Installation cost per foot excludes cost of pipe, trenching and purchase & installation of fittings that may be required on pipeline.
