The plumbing system in your house or office serves two functions. The first is to provide you with clean, potable water which you can drink, and the second is to get rid of waste water and sewerage. They are two distinct systems; after all you do want sewerage to come down your taps or invade your basins.
Your plumbing system contains pipes, valves, vents, fixtures, tanks and more.
Water comes from wells or the main water supply, pipes carry it to your sinks, bathtubs, showers and toilets. Then the water drainage system takes over and pipes the waste to your septic tank or the sewers.
Most people can handle minor problems, like a basin which drains slowly, or perhaps changing a washer on a tap which is dripping. But most plumbing problems require a professional. And this is where Plumbing Systems Cheshunt come in. DIY can lead to worse problems in times to come.
People who organise regular and thorough check ups by a plumber can save themselves expensive damage later on. A plumber can detect and repair faults while they are still minor faults. These minor faults grow into major problems later on if no one attends to them in the infant stages.
You may not notice a minor leak – but the constant damp can permeate plaster leading to mould and consequent ill health. A hidden leak can cause structural damage, wooden floors can warp and porous tiles may stain.
Many routine maintenance tasks are simple do-it-yourself jobs. An inspection is the foundation of any maintenance schedule. You may use your sinks and tubs daily, but you might not notice minor concerns unless you set aside time for an inspection. Go through your home and take a look at your plumbing. Examine all exposed pipes, including under sinks and behind toilet tanks, for any signs of moisture. On a humid day, some condensation on a cold metal pipe is normal, so note any dampness and check the pipes again when the home is cooler. Check for signs of corrosion on brass or copper fittings; corrosion occurs more rapidly on damp metal, so corroded connections could reveal a slow leak.
Turn on water faucets in sinks, showers and tubs to monitor water pressure. Some variation between different faucet styles and purposes is normal, but all of them should have a steady flow. Note how quickly the water drains after you test the faucet, too; slow drains could mean a clog waiting to happen. While you’re making your rounds, flush toilets to ensure they don’t run or leak at the base, a sign of a faulty wax seal.
