Plumbing Systems Explained

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 116

Plumbing is an area best left to the professionals. The skill and knowledge required to repair or maintain any plumbing system is at a level beyond that of the everyday person. Around the home there are four main plumbing systems and each may require a specific type of plumber. Be sure to understand the systems around your home to assist in deciding what plumber is right for you.

1) Portable cold and hot tap water supply This is the most basic plumbing system. This system allows the use of both hot and cold water through all faucets in the house. Hot water is supplied through the same plumbing system but heated on the way to the taps. Almost all housing and commercial units in urban cities have this plumbing system. It is generally located in your backyard or the side of your property, normally close to the exterior of the bathroom.

2) Plumbing drainage venting The second most basic plumbing system in a residential, commercial or industrial unit is that of drainage venting. The objective of this system is to eject all sewage and gray water from the building through designated pipes. Also, a vital function of the plumbing drainage venting is the exit of air trapped between dirty water. Often, the failure of this function leads to bad odor in sanitation facilities. Fortunately, the maintenance of the system by professionals takes care of any such problems that may occur. All the pipes of this system eventually connect with the main drainage pipeline of the city and travel to a designated treatment plant.

3) Septic systems Some housing or commercial units exist in places where there are no sewage systems to connect to. In such cases, people resort to septic systems. As the name suggests, septic systems are small independent sewage systems. Mostly people living or working in country areas use septic plumbing systems. Components that make up a septic system include sand filters, alarms, pumps, septic tanks and areas for drainage such as ponds, peat moss beds or natural stone fiber filter plants. Be sure to have your tanks emptied regularly and treated for odour.

4) Fuel gas piping After the portable water system and drainage venting system, the third most common plumbing system is fuel gas piping. Gas is used not only for stoves in houses but also for different processes in industries. Hence, the proper construction, maintenance, repair and renovation of fuel gas piping systems is imperative. There are specialized plumbers to handle this system.
