The average householder regards the provision of hot and cold water on tap as one of the blessings of modern life, and also as one of its mysteries. Changes and repairs to the plumbing system are left to the repiping service Rancho Cordova, CA professional, despite the introduction of push-fit plastic pipes and scores of well-illustrated DIY manuals.

For most people this is a wise decision, fixing new pipes and changing a cistern (a container that holds water, such as a water tank) or water heater needs the right tools and experience.

Make sure that you choose a competent plumber, but you can’t leave everything to the plumber. Frozen pipes or a burst main call for immediate action by you, so you should get to know how your system works, where the various valves are, what to do in case of an emergency, and how to carry out a few simple repairs.

Many homes have a direct plumbing system or indirect plumbing system. An indirect plumbing system is found in most homes where the rising main feeds the cold water cistern and the kitchen tap. The cistern is located in the roof or loft, and all other fittings obtain their water from it.

In an indirect system, the system is used where the boiler is required to eat both the domestic water supply and the central heating system. The primary circuit from the water heater heats the coiled pipe in the cylinder and also the radiators which make up the central heating system.

This primary circuit has a feed and expansion cistern. The secondary circuit, fed by the cold water cistern, supplies the hot water taps around the house.

Houses can also have a direct plumbing system in which all of the cold taps are fed from the rising main. It is a cheaper and simpler system than the indirect one, but there are drawbacks.

High pressure in all the pipes can cause excessive noise and there is the danger of contamination. Some local authorities do not permit a direct plumbing system. The direct system is less expensive and easier to install than the indirect system, but not suitable for hard water areas or for linking with a central heating system.

Drainage System

There are three distinct types of drainage water that have to be carried away from the house. There is soapy wastewater from sinks, basins, and baths plus the foul soil water from the toilet. In addition, there is rainwater collected by the gutters on the roof.

Not too long ago it was thought that it was essential to keep wastewater and soil water apart, which meant that different pipes were installed within the house, called the standard two-pipe system.

Now, in the more modern house, there is a single main stack into which the water from the upstairs toilet, bath, and basins flows, called the one-pipe system.

Before making any changes to your drainage system you will need to obtain permission from your local authority. And for professional services, contact a reliable repiping service Rancho Cordova, CA company for this task.
