Life processes are guided by foreground and background channels. Those obvious to people and can be seen with and represent the former whereas the latter are either partly or totally hidden. Residential plumbing systems are an example of such background channels that are hidden from view but are important for the well-being of people.
Waste in whatever is, poses a danger especially when exposed to the environment. It is necessary to install systems to keep waterborne waste out of sight and reach. On one hand while supplying people with drinking water these should be secure and clean and thus able to ensure the mind is at peace.
Generally clean water is needed at such points as sinks, tubs, showers, and lavatories. Once the water has been used and contains waterborne waste it must be carried away from the site to septic tanks. This can be later treated and deposed or recycled to be used for non-consumption activities.
So often the working of the arrangement is concealed because the piping is hidden in the building walls and floors. Establishing the network includes a number of specially designed tubes and pipes that can be fitted together to build the network. This piping structure must be held by pipe hangers in positions that rely on the force of gravity to maintain flow.
To reduce water or waste spillage when it flows through these pipes special sealant material is applied to the network structure joints. Pipe dope and plumber putty are examples of the sealants used. This ensures that the piping is clean and secure.
Setting up the network of pipes is a complex activity that includes using many unique equipment and tools. The activity can only be professionally performed by trained and certified personnel.
