What do you think about when you hear the word plumber? If you’re anything like us, the first thing that might spring to mind is a man dressed in overalls, with a hammer in his belt and a few pipes to hand. There are some tasks that these experts are well-known for dealing with, including the installation of water systems and repairing boilers, but what you might not know is that these services are just the tip of the iceberg.
There are plenty of other, lesser known options available to those in need and as most plumbers will have specialised in the majority of them – you can rest assured that your task will be in the best of hands. What are these services, you ask? Well, here’s a closer look at three of them that you’d simply have to see to believe!
Underground water flow installation
When it rains the majority of water will be absorbed by soil, or it will evaporate back into the atmosphere. But what about times where rainfall is especially heavy? Where does the water go then? Well, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the horror stories relating to water damage underground and if you happen to have foundations, whether concrete or wood – they might suffer as a result.
A good plumber will be able to install water flow features, runners and underground pipelines to all but eliminate the concern of liquid build-ups.
Irrigation system installation
There are plenty of home owners out there that enjoy growing plants and crops, in fact anyone with a little bit of garden space could take part. Irrigation systems are a great way to provide a consistent level of water to flowers, herbs and any other type of plant – and as plumbers have an uncanny amount of expertise in the field of water-management, they could help to install features of all sizes.
Even if irrigation isn’t up your alley; you could opt for a similarly suited water-supply feature to add a little something to your outdoor space.
Now we know what you’re thinking… household tasks are some of the most common that plumbers offer, but did you know that rather than chucking out an old, worn, or rusted pipe – you could hire a plumbing company to come out and take care of almost anything water-related. They could reline an existing pipe to keep it functioning, even if the outside one is damaged; or they could even repair a faulty cistern and switch out its internal components.
When it comes to the day to day running of your home, your options will be almost endless – and considering that all plumbing agents are well versed at regular tasks, you’ll undoubtedly find a reason to get in touch with one of them.
