PLUMBING SUPPLIES DUBLIN
When you install a plumbing fixture, whether it be an entire bathroom system or just a single pipe, you want to know that it will be a long time before you have to perform any maintenance on it again. Because the wear and tear that the plumbing supplies are put under happens day in and day out, year after year, it’s vital that they’re built to last long and survive any number of environmental changes. When its winter it has to work in the cold. When its summer, it has to adjust to the heat.
Whatever plumbing fittings you buy from Thermoparts Plumbing Supplies Dublin, brackets, chrome, copper, instantor fitting, microbore, PVC waste, or qualpex solder, we’re confident it will survive the stress its put under for years to come.
Tips for Using Plumbing Supplies
Obviously you want to catch a plumbing problem early on. If you get to it when its small, then you’re potentially saving yourself a huge amount of money when it comes to fixing the fallout. Easier said than done. The idea of going around and checking every pipe in your house for small leaks sounds like an uphill struggle. But there are one or two tricks to help you along the way. For example, if you want to check that your toilet is in working order, put a few drops of food colouring in the tank, don’t flush the toilet for an hour, then check the water in the bowl. If the food colouring has spread, then you know there’s a leak to be fixed.
You might think that putting that extra bit of elbow grease into tightening valves will help the plumbing supplies last longer. After all, the tighter a fitting, the less likely there’ll be a leak, right? Wrong. Fittings like valves have been refined so that when they’re closed, they do their job just as they should. By closing them too tight you might actually be creating damage that will cause you trouble down the road. Ideally, all a valve will require is a turn and a half of a wrench. If you’re going too far over that then you might want to hold back.
If you ever have a major problem with your plumbing supplies, the first thing you’ll want to do is shut off water in the house. You might not know how big an issue is until you explore it further, so it’s important that you get to this straight away. Be aware of how to do this. The valve to shut your water off is probably under your kitchen sink, but check that it is right now. That way, if there ever is a problem, you won’t have to waste time searching around and can cut the water supply off immediately.
