The Main Installations To Entrust To A Professional Plumber
The plumber is a craftsman of the building trade who carries out work of second work. He can intervene in new construction as well as in renovation and he deals with the installation, the repair and the maintenance of sanitary equipment and pipes. He has various technical skills, including measuring, tracing, gluing, welding and bending. He also has a good knowledge of materials such as copper, plastic, stainless steel, iron, zinc and steel. He is the one to call if you want to benefit from a job well done or if you want to guarantee/improve your comfort and safety. Here are the main installations that you should entrust to a professional plumber.
The installation of a water meter
The very first installation of the plumber Brussels is the installation of the water meter.
This is usually done by your water company or a technician from the water distributor who works with the local council.
But in any case, be aware that this service provider can be a plumber.
He studies the viability of the connection to the drinking water network.
Then he will connect the water from your new house to the public network.
He will then connect a secondary pipe to the main pipe that runs in the street at your house.
This will allow you to benefit from drinking water that arrives at your home via your taps.
Thanks to this water meter, it is possible to estimate your water consumption during a given period and to identify you from the serial number.
And normally you can choose between a single jet speed water meter, a multiple jet speed water meter and a volumetric meter.
Installation of the fittings
The second plumbing installation in Brussels to be listed is the installation of the taps.
This does not only concern the taps. It also includes the installation of valves, flaps, safety valve and pressure reducer.
The plumber can actually help you choose your taps to ensure that they are comfortable to use and that you save water.
Then, he can also determine the type of valves that are right for you: a globe valve, a gate valve, a butterfly valve, a ball valve or a single flap valve.
Speaking of flap valves, you should know that this is the component of the valve that allows you to choose the direction in which the water flows.
It also comes in different models to meet your needs: swing check valve, guided check valve, ball check valve and concentric disc check valve.
Finally, the plumbing installation in Brussels also includes the installation of the safety valve and the pressure reducing valve, because the safety valve is the element that evacuates the excess of water in order to regulate the pressure inside the pipes and the pressure reducing valve is the part that limits the pressure in the pipes.
Installation of the traffic controller
The installation of a flow monitor is also a plumber's job in Brussels.
This device makes it possible to visualize and control the flow of water in the pipes.
It is generally equipped with a window and a small propeller that informs on the flow or not of water.
Installation of the piping
After installing the circulation controller, the plumber will take care of the plumbing.
This kind of plumbing installation Brussels requires both skill, experience, taste and precision.
As you know, plumbing is mainly used to supply your house with drinking water. But it is also used to evacuate waste water.
So you need to choose the right pipes.
A plumber can advise you on the type of pipe to choose. He knows the advantages and disadvantages of each pipe.
So, he can determine which model is best for you.
Among other things, you should know that a PVC pipe is perfect for draining liquids, since it is light and practical.
And a copper pipe is ideal for the distribution of cold and hot water, as it is particularly resistant.
PER pipe, on the other hand, is excellent for supplying water to sanitary equipment and heating systems.
And finally, a solid cast iron pipe is a silent pipe that allows water to flow quietly.
The installation of sanitary equipment
The last plumbing installation Brussels to the list is the installation of sanitary equipment.
This is usually preceded by the connection to the water supply network and the connection to the sewage system.
This is followed by the installation of toilets, washbasins, bidets, showers, baths, sinks, water heaters and boilers.
Locating the location of the sanitary facilities
To do this, the plumber will draw a plan of the room.
Then, he will locate the water inlets and outlets in order to define the position of the sanitary facilities.
After that, he will trace the route of the networks to calculate the length of the pipes necessary for the Brussels plumbing installation and he will quantify the number of fittings, stop valves and clamps to be implemented.
To continue, the plumber will temporarily fix the appliance in the location indicated on the plan and will mark the marks on the wall and on the floor.
He will also mark the location of the fixing clamps before drilling, dowelling and installing them.
The installation of the water inlets
The next step is to set up the water inlets.
To do this, you need to put a stopcock at the start of the Brussels plumbing system or upstream of the plumbing fixture.
Then, all the pipes must be placed to precisely locate the position of the connecting pieces.
The final assembly of the hot and cold water supply pipes must then be carried out, and the pipes must be inserted and permanently fixed in the clamps.
The installation and connection of sanitary appliances.
The last step is to set up and connect the sanitary equipment.
Here, the plumber will fit the appliance with its accessories and he will adjust the bungs, siphons, overflow, ...
following the manufacturer's instructions.
He will then fix the appliances to the walls with joints and nuts and fit them with their taps.
He will also connect the fittings to the pipes with flexible hoses and he will finish by connecting the water supply and drainage.
