Are you facing leakage problems in the house every often? Have you tried to repair it but it helps nothing? Maybe the problem is with the plumbing of your house. Plumbing is designed very carefully keeping the usage of water in every part of the house. Some parts need more water such as your bathroom and kitchen compared to the other parts like the outlet in your garden or garage. If the pipes are not selected carefully as per the water requirement of the household, it might cause undue pressure on the pipes leading to leakage. You can surely avoid all these issues with these simple pointers:

Choose design as per outlet: Make sure that the plumbing design allows smooth inlet and outlet of water from every place. You need to focus on avoiding undue pressure on the pipes, especially during peak hours.

Right size pipes: Never ever use pipes which are small for bathrooms or places with high water usage. This might cause pipe bursting or leakage in the joints. You need to use the right size pipe as per the usage. This goes for PVC as well as PPR pipes for varied usage.

Sealant for joints: To make sure all your joints in the plumbing design are secured, use a good sealant for the joints. This will prevent any leakage around the joints which might occur during high usage.

Regular repairs: Repair the pipes regularly to avoid any major damage. If you see a pipe dripping or any tap leaking, it is advisable to repair it as soon as possible.

Good pipes: Always go with good quality pipes from a certified company. Certified companies abide by all the standards given by the government for making and choosing material for the plumbing pipes.

You need to discuss all the issues with your plumber for understanding all these aspects. It is better to be well aware of all the problems which might occur as well as how to deal with it when it occurs.
