Fixtures and fittings

We need plumbers in almost every household trouble. We often don’t understand the work they do that gets our house running properly. For a layman to understand, a plumber is persistent on two basic jobs of the house. The first one is the fittings. In order to let the water flow throughout the household and pour down from the water taps, the pipes need fittings. These fittings can be described as connection points for two or more pipes. There are different kinds of fittings for different pipes. The two basic pipes include the plastic and aluminum pipes. Therefore, there are fittings such as welding, solvent welding, scale joint and more for these two different types. Plumber Hackney advises solvent welding for the plastic pipes as the solvent binds the plastic together firmly. Welding in the most conventional method used to bind aluminum or metallic pipes together.
When we talk about fixtures, they are somewhat similar to fittings. While the fittings serve as connection points for the pipes, the fixtures are the supportive nuts and bolts for the process. However, fixtures cannot be confined to pipes only. Fixtures are applied in the water taps to make sure there are no leaks. The fixtures are also used in fixing the appliances of the house tightly so they do not come out of grasp. Fixtures include connection joints, bolts, nuts and some screws. Fixtures can help a lot in making sure the appliances as well as the household items are not leaking or damaged. In case there are some leaks in the piping, the plumbers always add more fixtures so they stop leaking. In case your pipe ever starts leaking or bursts without notice, give Plumber Hackney a call and he will resolve the issue right there and then. He is also specialized in advising the right kind of fittings for the pipes according to their types.
