Tools and equipment
Plumbing equipment includes devices often hidden behind walls or in utility spaces which are not seen by the general public. It includes water meters, pumps, expansion tanks, backflow preventers, water filters, UV sterilization lights, water softeners, water heaters, heat exchangers, gauges, and control systems.
Specialized plumbing tools include pipe wrenches, flaring pliers, pipe vise, pipe bending machine, pipe cutter, dies and joining tools such as soldering torches and crimp tools. New tools have been developed to help plumbers fix problems more efficiently. For example, plumbers use video cameras for inspections of hidden leaks or problems, they use hydro jets, and high pressure hydraulic pumps connected to steel cables for trench-less sewer line replacement.
Flooding from excessive rain or clogged sewers may require specialized equipment, such as a heavy duty pumper truck designed to vacuum raw sewage.
The scope of work includes running small hydraulic repair and counteract the negative effects of large hydraulic failure including, for example, one part of the city. Then in his work co-operate with the fire department, which deals with pumping water from flooded premises or the flooded area of the city. In such a situation, plumbers, first assess the damage done plumbing, and then deal with their valuation and inform the owners of the premises or the city authorities of its findings. Only on this basis can take care of carrying out the necessary repairs. Normally plumbers work from Monday to Friday or Saturday, but in emergency situations may proceed to carry out their work even on Sundays.
