Domestic plumbing refers to the plumbing system in a home or residential property. It includes the pipes, fixtures, and appliances that supply water to the property, such as sinks, showers, and toilets, as well as the pipes and fittings that remove waste and sewage from the property. Domestic plumbing also encompasses the hot water system, which is responsible for heating the water used in the property. Regular maintenance and repairs of domestic plumbing are important for the health and safety of the occupants and the efficient functioning of the property. If you need assistance with domestic plumbing, contact a licensed plumber.
Domestic plumbing works by using a network of pipes and fittings to supply clean water to a property and remove stormwater and sewerage from it. Water is supplied to the property through a main water supply line, which is then distributed through a system of pipes to various fixtures and appliances in the property. The wastewater is removed through a system of drainpipes and fittings, which are connected to a sewer or septic system. The hot water system works by heating water and distributing it through a separate system of pipes to the various fixtures and appliances that require hot water. The stormwater/rainwater is removed through a network of pipes, pits and fittings. This can be connected to the roof and disperse to the council drainage system.
Domestic plumbing systems require regular maintenance and repairs to ensure efficient functioning and prevent damage or health hazards.
Commercial plumbing is designed to meet the needs of large commercial or industrial properties, whereas domestic plumbing is designed for residential properties. Commercial plumbing systems are typically larger, more complex and require more specialized equipment and knowledge to install and maintain. Commercial plumbing systems may also need to adhere to stricter regulations and requirements, such as fire codes and disability access. Additionally, commercial plumbing systems may need to accommodate higher volumes of water and waste, and be able to withstand heavier usage. Domestic plumbing systems, on the other hand, are smaller in scale and are generally easier to install and maintain.
