We Recommend the Green Plumbing

In this article discussing the benefits of green plumbing we strongly recommend it. Our home or otherwise plumbing is the source of water supply from the main line or tanker to the bathrooms, kitchen and points where we want the supply of the water. Up till now the pipes of different metals have been introduced in the market. The pipes of copper and iron etc. remained in use for a so long time. A change in this field also occurred with the passage of time and plastic pipes were introduced in the market. The reason for manufacturing the plastic pipes was to enable the people having not or having small budget for construction of building and plumbing installation.

PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) is a so hard type of the plastic that it can be used without any hesitation to make the pipes to be used for plumbing. It is an unbreakable kind of the plastic. When the manufacturer was successful to convert this plastic to the pipes, he consulted the forum which had the power to decide that whether or not the PEX pipes are hygienically fit for water supply. It was certified that the PEX pipes are suitable for the supply of the water to be used for drinking, washing and bathing purposes.

Firstly the green plumbing material is as hard as required. The pipes and supporting equipments are unbreakable despite of hitting anything which can be expected in a home or other building. We have seen that at some places the green plumbing installation exists from many years. It is rightly said that during the time period (in which the green plumbing did not require any repairing or replacement), the plumbing of other material must need something (repairing of any pipe or supporting device or internal cleaning).

Secondly being an underground piping, it is a hidden installation. Thus its bad look or cheapness is not considerable, which is main reason of its less usage. If the plumbing is an exposed one, no problem, the green pipe plumbing can be made beautiful and strong due to easily cut able pipes. If the small lengths are used, the line remains straight despite of severe cold and hot.

Thirdly the green plumbing material is easily available. Services for the installation of this material are also available. Repairing and replacements are easy and low priced. Fourthly the internal surface of the green pipes is more slippery than the surface of other metal pipes, thus the flow of water is fast and regular. Moreover if any time there is the situation of standing water in the green pipes, unlike other pipes the chances of rust accumulation and corrosion are not there.

Upshot is that we have no reason to present if we refuse the green plumbing installation. Rather we have many reasons to choose the green plumbing installation e.g. sufficiently available in the market, low prices of the material, repairs and replacements, installation etc. So the green plumbing installation is recommended to the viewers and other.

Green Plumbing – It’s Great!

People are becoming more and more conscious about being and living a more green life. Because of this there has been an increasing interest in having green plumbing installed over the past few years. Why wouldn’t people become interested in it? Green plumbing doesn’t only contribute to the slowing down of the constant depletion of resources for fresh water but will lower your water bill as well! We want there to be fresh clean water for our children right? So, we all have to do our part.

If you are living in Santa Monica, it’s pretty easy to find green plumbers, if you are looking for them. They can quickly install a green plumbing system in your home which will immediately lower your water consumption. The main areas that green plumbing can make the most impact are in the bathrooms and the kitchen. Although, if you are having green plumbing installed within your house, it would be even better to alter the plumbing in the garden, garage and other parts of the house too.

In the bathroom, your toilet, shower and tub faucets can be altered so that you won’t waste so much water when they are in use. You can opt for the low pressure shower head which will still provide you with the same function but with less water consumption. You can also have the faucet for your tubs replaced with low pressure one. For the toilet, you can also opt for the dual flush feature which will lower the required water for every flush.

When it comes to the kitchen, you can ask your green plumber to install a low pressure kitchen faucet. This is even more important because the kitchen faucet usually consumes a lot of water because of constant washing of dishes, foods, and counters. Replacing this faucet can be the single most important investment in your green plumbing system. You can also install a water regulator in your dishwasher to lessen the water needed to run the machine and clean the dishes. If you have a regulator for the dishwasher, you no longer need to hand wash the dishes just to save water. Actually, if you have installed the regulator, you will use more water to hand wash the dishes than to use the dishwasher.

Do yourself and the environment a favor and look into green plumbing. Your children and children’s children will thank you.

Plumbing Emergencies – Life Snake in Bathrooms – Causes and Solutions

There have been several serious reports of life snakes bites in the bathrooms. The causes of this plumbing emergency case may be: (A) Bad building plan (B) Bad Plumbing installation. Builders should make sure that block walls are properly plastered with well mixed cement up to the ceiling level.

An outer ceiling must be made of strong lasting materials that will not rotten with time to create chance for reptiles to climb into the roof. On the other hand careless plumbing installations in the house, has created loopholes for rats, lizards, frogs, toads, and even snakes to gain entrance into living apartments through the bathroom waste pipelines.

My concern of such happenings adds more, but most often when people are bitten by snakes right in their rooms, and at times such bites results to serious illness and even death.

As a professional plumber, I have gone to many homes for emergencies but many a times I come across plumbing waste pipe laid into big street drainage without any wire mesh or drain trap to cover them at all.

Recently, a house wife called me for repairs which involved big rats getting into her bathroom through waste water pipeline.

Also, another white housewife, a Russian told me how a rat ran into a toilet seat and got away through the retained water in the WC trap. Some reptiles in the search of water or cool places during hot climate, always trace water from big gutters and drain pipes into bathroom especially where we  have bushes, forest and swarms.

Solution:

I recommend that only qualified plumbers with years of experience should handle plumbing installations located at places mention above, materials for such jobs must be of good standard with good water seals, example are, water closets, floor drains.

All vents must be covered with stainless or plastic vent cover with tiny holes to let out air. All the baths, sinks, wash hand basin should be fixed with good resealing traps.

Never enter any dark toilet without light. Use torches where there is no electricity, where there is electricity; switch for bathroom light must be fixed before the bathroom door to enable users to light the room before entry. The above suggestions will help to prevent unnecessary plumbing emergencies in bathrooms.
