English term or phrase: Food-Grade Ductile Water Pipe
So what we did is basically we replaced this ageing pipe and established a food-grade ductile water pipe and we reduced the water losses to zero point.

food-grade ductile water pipe
cijevi za vodu od kovine neškodljive za zdravlje


Explanation:
"A food-grade container is one that will not transfer non-food chemicals into the food and contains no chemicals which would be hazardous to human health."

agree  bonafide1313: ne znam jedino moraju li baš biti kovine ili mogu i drugi nekontaminirajući materijali, npr. PE i slično?

  -> ili ostaviti duktilne cijevi za vodu neškodljive za zdravlje jer se i kod nas koristi pridjev duktilan u smislu žilav, tj. ne lomi se pri manjim naprezanjima

neutral  PeregrineFalcon: ductile i jest gibljiv, dakle vjerojatno se radi o gibljivoj (savitljivoj) cijevi od neke vrste plastične mase, jer današnje vodovodne cijevi koje se ukapaju ispod tla po gradovima jesu takve

Water pipes are pipes or tubes, frequently made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC/uPVC), ductile iron, polyethylene, or copper, that carry pressurized and treated fresh water to buildings (as part of a municipal water system), as well as inside the building.

...
Ductile iron, also called ductile cast iron, spheroidal graphite iron, or nodular cast iron, is a type of cast iron invented in 1943 by Keith Millis.[1] While most varieties of cast iron are brittle, ductile iron is much more flexible and elastic, due to its nodular graphite inclusions.
Applications
Much of the annual production of ductile iron is in the form of ductile cast iron pipe, used for water and sewer lines. Ductile iron pipe is stronger and easier to tap, requires less support and provides greater flow area compared with pipe made from other materials. In difficult terrain it can be a better choice than PVC, concrete, polyethylene, or steel pipe.

agree  bonafide1313: čitajući malo nakon vaših pojašnjenja vidim da ima i dosta izvora koji govore i o ekološkoj prednosti tih cijevi nad "plastikom"
