Plumbing is the system and infrastructure used to transport media such as water, oil, and gas. The most common applications for plumbing include water supply, waste removal and HVAC (heating and cooling).Pipes, hoses, and tubesPipes, hoses, and tubes are fundamental to plumbing. They are the hollow cylinders used to transport fluids and gases. Pipes, hoses and tubes are available in a range of materials to suit every application. These materials include PVC, PEX, copper, galvanised steel, and cast iron.Pipe fittingsPipe fittings are used to connect pipes together and can change the direction of flow. They are manufactured from a variety of materials including copper, bronze, and brass. With a choice of push-fit, threaded fittings, sockets, elbows and tees you will be able to find the perfect fitting for your application.HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) Plumbing products are commonly used for heating, ventilation and air conditioning applications. Products include radiators, water heaters, central heating pumps, process pumps, and solar-powered heating systems.MaintenanceMaintaining a plumbing system is essential. Not only can it extend the lifespan of the system, but it can also help avoid costly repairs and prevent accidents. Filters, cleaning brushes and descaling kits can help to prolong pipes and equipment.SealantsSealants create a watertight or airtight seal. Sealants can be used to prevent pipes from leaking where they are joined.AccessoriesA number of accessories can be integrated into your plumbing system. Sealing kits and tape can reinforce the seals within your plumbing while preventing threads from shearing. Pipe marking tape is ideal to identify different types of pipe.
