What Are the Different Kinds of Plumbing & Drainage Service Repairs?
There are 3 major kinds of plumbing & drain service repairs that will address problems which can happen with plumbing systems. These are leaks, mechanical parts in a plumbing fixture such as a faucet or valve that need repairing, and clearing clogs in a drainage system. Leaks can happen anywhere within a system for various reasons.
Mechanical issues happen mainly when valves don’t work correctly, and the flow of water is not regulated properly, and is often shown by water leaks. Clogs usually happen in the drainage side and become visible when water is not draining properly from a sink or toilet. Any kind of plumbing issue poses a risk to a person’s health or property, and must be fixed immediately.
Many plumbing systems have a supply side, which brings in water from a central source and a drainage side, this drains the water once is has been used, along with any waste. The supply side brings in water under pressure via a system of tubes, these are able to withstand enormous water pressure. When the tubes are connected, the joints are then secured by one of several ways, ranging from soldering, solvent welding or compression joints. The drainage has wider pipes which take used water and waste to a sewer system.
Leaks in the supply part of a system usually happen when a pipe is frozen and then burst, a joint has broken down and failed, or when tubing has deteriorated prematurely. When leaks happen within the supply side, water escapes under pressure and can cause damage to the surrounding areas, and cause a flood. When a leak happens within the supply side, it has to be stopped and fixed immediately.
