Plumbing

The importance of good plumbing cannot be overstated. The homeowner’s domain of attractive tapware and bathroom fittings is important, but it’s just the cosmetic ‘tip of the iceberg’, beneath which a sound home depends on efficient and professionally installed plumbing to avoid weak flows, blockages, burst pipes, etc. Often in the process of a building project, be it a new home or a renovation, the plumber is brought in too late in the day and has to design a solution to fit an agreed layout. If instead you employ a plumber at the design stage, they can offer you advice on options that could save you thousands and will almost certainly ensure a better solution. There are a number of plumbing issues to consider when employing a plumber.
  • Check there is enough mains water pressure to supply all your requirements.
  • Check the pipe size is adequate for the number of appliances you are currently running and are likely to add in the future.
  • Do you want water filters, and, if so, how will they affect the water pressure?
  • Are you adding fire sprinklers?
  • Does your landscaping include water features and where do you need taps for garden needs? Is there backflow protection on the water features?
  • How can you conserve the amount of water you use and the energy used to heat the water?
  • Is there adequate insulation on the pipes so they can’t be heard?
  • Are the water pipes close enough to the hot water source or do you need multiple water heaters? plumbing
