You might have had an idea that every plumbing system is same. Well, that is wrong as there are both subtle and not-so-subtle differences between those systems. Now, part of our company deals with installation, repair, and maintenance of the plumbing networks in buildings. This is loosely connected to our primary work about which you can read on https://www.centralgassafety.co.uk.
In this post, we won’t discuss gas boilers. Instead of that, we will talk about plumbing and what makes one system different, or better than another. Differences might be subtle, but one or two of those changes you can do to your plumbing system can cost over a couple of thousand dollars (if you are a landlord).
Breakdown of the plumbing system
The fundamental element of every plumbing system is an underground tank that contains water that has to be supplied to apartments. The first choice a landlord has it the way that water is delivered to flats. The first option is to install pipes that will distribute the water and the second option is to use pumps for the same work. This choice might force you to fit additional elements to provide an uninterrupted supply of water to all apartments.
Overhead tank is also an essential piece of this plumbing puzzle, but you can avoid it through the usage of the special pumps. They are called hydro-pneumatic pumps, and they will keep the pressure in the pipe system up. This will allow a decent pressure whenever an individual opens a tap. Pumps that belong to this group have a small tank that is divided into two parts, one that holds the water and the other that contains air. The rubber membrane that separates those two will expand as the compressed air pushes it to the part with the water. This will create additional water pressure that will force water into the system and to the tap.
Drainage systems and how they differ
A normal drainage system isn’t suited for grease, and thus there are ways to remove it. The whole drainage system divides the waste into water and other elements, and therefore it prevents clogging. A grease trap is an excellent piece of the entire system that prevents grease from entering the said piping. You have to remove it on a daily basis, and this can be only done manually.
Municipal government drainage collects all the waste that is created in your building. But this isn’t always the case as some areas of the city aren’t connected to the same. This is where private septic tanks come into the play. Every building that isn’t related to government drainage has to have a closed basin.
Where does the waste go?
Up until several years ago, all waste was dumped on either planned or unplanned waste disposal locations. This endangered the nature and thus the change came in the form of sewage treatment facilities. These facilities accept wastewater and purify it. The said water is returned to the system as it is 100% free from all waste factors.
