The Types of Pipes that You Need 

We individuals who are not experts in the plumbing world, we might think that these people are only using a general tool or equipment for the job but what we have to understand is that there are many different kinds of plumbing pipes that the experts use especially in their construction works specifically when they are working on the drainage, water disposal and the supply of the water of the building that they are making.

Types of Pipes

As we all know that a building should really have a great supply of water so that people won’t lack one of their basic needs which is water. Water, just like any materials that are going to be used on the construction, it should also be computed very well before even starting the construction of the whole building. This is done in order for us to determine what kinds of pipes we are going to use when we are going to build the building. This is to ensure that these pipes are suitable for the task because some pipes are only made for a single purpose and we should honor that we should not use it for other purposes because just because it is affordable we must make sure that it can really hold the pressure of water in that said place or purpose.

The plumbing system of a building includes all of the pipe fitting and the appliances that is used for the supply and the draining of water in a building. As what we have stressed above, these pipes that comprise the whole plumbing system are very much different to each other and they differ in their functions in the entire system. The pipes that carry water into the building is not the same with the pipes that washes away the water waste of the building.

Those pipes that carry the water supply from the main area inside the system in the building or in your respective house is called the Service Pipes which are made with galvanized iron pipes, lead pipes, copper pipes and polythene pipes.

If the water on the ground is very acidic and is not meant for metals, contractors use the copper pipes because it has a high capability of avoiding acidic water therefore it cannot be easily destroyed by an acidic water because it is strong and they can handle great pressure so that means that this kind of pipe can also be used when the building that you are in produces heavy flows especially the industrial buildings.  If you do not know, heavy gauge and light gauge pipes are the kinds of copper pipes. If it is not too obvious already given its names, the heavy gauge is used when the pressure is higher than normal and the light gauge are only used when the pressure of the water is slow to normal pacing.

If you want something friendlier for the economy then you should choose a galvanized iron pipe but the thing that you should think twice about is its low ability to resist acid especially in water where there are high acid levels. This is actually harder than the copper pipe but you can only use this when there are less possibilities of coming in contact with acid.

Polythene pipes are also one of the many kinds of pipes that they can use in extremely cold water. This kind of pipe is the best because it resists the acidity levels, cheap and affordable in price, light weight, there is no need for threading and it is very easy to store and install which means that you will not be having a great deal of stress upon the given work.

Although lead pipes are almost the exact opposite of the polythene pipes because this one is very flexible and it does not corrode but the bad thing for you guys is that the lead in this product is not recommended by doctors because when someone eats or drink from a glass full of lead they can die due to poisoning and we are very sure that none of you wants that to happen. Therefore we recommend you to find another kind of pipes that will not put your health in danger because that is very important if you want to live your life to the fullest.

If you are planning to work on anything related with pipes, you must be well equipped with knowledge and skills that you can apply when you want to succeed in this career.
