A home’s plumbing system is a multifaceted set-up of water supply pipelines, vent pipes, drainpipes and many more. Because plumbing is complex and one of the priciest systems to fix or install in a home, it pays to understand how the system runs. Understanding the basics of a plumbing system permits you to better understand the categories of glitches that happen or, if you’re planning to remodeling or a new home, it helps you create a system that will work correctly. You can always rely on our plumbers in London for both complex plumbing projects and plumbing emergencies.


Water supply system in London

A home’s water supply system directs municipal water from the street to your home, where it splits out to distribute the water to faucets, toilets, showers, bathtubs and appliances like a water heater, a washing machine or a dishwasher.

The equipment for this distribution and circulation is basically a system of water pipes, fittings, faucets and service valves. These pipelines and other fixtures are usually made of galvanized iron, cooper or plastic.

Kitchen plumbing system in London

Most kitchens in London have an equally simple plumbing system that contains hot and cold water supply lines directly to the faucets; a waste line for the sink and for cookers a gas supply pipeline. Many kitchens also have connections with a dishwasher, a disposer, an ice maker, and/or instant hot water, but these are usually tied into the sink’s plumbing. If you need help in installing different kitchen fixtures, our plumbers in London are at your disposal.

Bathroom plumbing system in London

Showers, bathtubs, sink and toilets, you name it; they are all bathroom fixtures, important parts of the home plumbing system. The bathroom plumbing deals with water delivery to and waste removal from all of these fittings in a controlled, effective, leak-free method. Two plumbing systems are needed to handle a bathroom’s plumbing essentials: drain waste vent and water supply.

Drain waste vent system in London

Although it isn’t one of the most desirable elements of a home, the drain waste vent (DWV) system is one of the most important. The function of the drain waste vent is to transport waste water and sewage from sinks, showers, toilets, bathtubs and water-using appliances like dishwashers and washing machines and to carry those wastes to the public sewer or septic tank of the city.

As a reminder, our plumber in London will properly guide you if you want details about pipes and plumbing structures for your house. If you need extra information about the home plumbing system, please feel free to contact our team of plumbers in London.
