Plumbing Components

Plumbing components are any fixtures that supply water from the mains to the home as well as those which take away waste water. They also ensure that domestic appliances can operate correctly. They vary in size from bulky items such as baths to small pipe fittings. Depending on their function, plumbing components are made of a variety of materials: metals, acrylic, fibreglass, concrete, plastic and enamel-coated metal. The term plumbing components encompasses a wide range of fixtures, fittings and products. They include the larger fixtures in bathrooms and kitchens such as sinks and showers as well as taps and valves. The pipes and pipe fittings (for example, gaskets and flanges) are also part of this category. For drainage, there are a range of specialised pipes and fittings including traps. Flexible hoses, pipe covers, clips and toilet spares are all plumbing components. Macerators or any water treatment system such as filters are included in this category. Finally, plumbing consumables are considered to be plumbing components. Plumbing components in any building, residential, commercial or industrial, ensure the smooth flow of water in and out of the structure. They also enable the connection and functioning of appliances that need water such as washing machines.
