At the time of water lines being changed or set up anew, there are several factors to consider. The major consideration is to ensure that water pressure is adequate when the water line connection is being made from the street supply to your home. In many cases it is found that the water pressure is too low, even with the new pipes and connections made. When you call in A Better Plumber to do the job, they will provide a choice of pipes as per material and fittings or connections that are ideal and long lasting; the quality of job needs to be right, so that water supply fittings and connections stay sound and without fault. Finally, if problems like water pressure being too low are faced, a plumber should be able to provide a booster system to take care of the problem.
Installing water supply lines
This is a primary and important task when water lines are being installed. In order to ensure quality connections, usually a supply line should have a metal nut or a plastic nut that is reinforced to last longer. Often homeowners or plumbers might cut costs by having cheap plastic nuts used on supply lines. This is a strict no no as hand tightening or tightening by pliers can lead to compression and nuts to crack easily, especially when they are made of plastic.
Material choices in pipe connections
When it comes to replacement or setup of water lines, the kind of pipe fittings used can make all the difference. Pipelines can be built of different materials, of plastic like Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), copper, steel or chlorinated poly vinyl chloride (PVC). These are usually provided as components that can be assembled easily. Hence, lines can be setup in different ways as per your home requirement, around corners, over ceilings, under a house and so forth. An experienced plumber will choose the material of pipe fitting as per the job or the substance to be transferred. For instance the pipes could be carrying water or pressurized gas as well as water that is potable or non-potable. Usually PVC is a common choice in case of drainage systems being created above the ground or for supplying water to sprinklers. In case of hot or cold potable water being supplied CPVC is the material commonly used. For underground drainage systems the ABS pipes are used.
Seals and bonds
Not only is the right choice of pipe material importance, the way the connections are done and sealed also indicates long lasting and hassle free connections of water lines. A Better Plumber uses different sealers in order to ensure that the pipe fittings provide a tight and leak proof fit. Threaded pipes are often sealed with sealing tapes while quick drying solvent cement is also used on plastic fittings. Quality work from A Better Plumber is showcased through right fittings and lasting bonds created in the different pipe line connections made to ensure lasting functionality and less hassles for the home owners.
