What you Should Know About Good Plumbing

What you Should Know About Good Plumbing

Plumbing was invented for a number of reasons, convenience and disease control being two of the major ones. 

No longer did you have to walk to get your water, you just turned on a tap and hot and cold water flowed freely. 

Plumbing also reduced the incidence of pools of filthy water lying around, which caused disease.  

Modern plumbing now brings clean water in where we want it, and takes the used water away, and we’re all much healthier for it.

Plumbing 101

All good plumbing is regulated and must conform to building codes, otherwise anyone could run pipes anywhere and chaos would ensue, not to mention some very unsanitary conditions. 

Before any plumbing commences a detailed plan and layout must be created that includes where to put the pipes for your kitchen, bathroom and laundry, and indeed, where to put the rooms themselves if you’re building a new house. 

Use Quality Materials

Your plumbing does an important job so keep it working properly by using long lasting, top quality pipes and fittings. 

It might be tempting to try and save money by using less expensive options but you’ll end up paying more in repairs, lost time and frustration. 

Good Planning

Planning your network of pipes will ensure you use the least possible amount of connections. 

Where the pipes are connected are the weakest places, and where you’re most likely to spring a leak. Be careful, planning to have more pipes than connections for more durable and robust plumbing. 

Mark the pipes so you know which pipe goes wheremaking it easier to identify problem areas. For example, if one pipe develops a leak but you don’t know whether it’s the bathroom or kitchen pipe. Marking pipes cleanrly allows you to immediately identify the concerning pipe.  

Call the Professionals

If all of this sounds like too much work, don’t panic, just call out a professional plumber to take care of it all for you. 

DIY plumbing sounds easy in theory, but it only takes one little mistake to stop the whole system from working, and often with very messy consequences. 

Your local plumber will also advise on the best materials to use, and create your detailed plumbing design and plan for optimum results.
