What are the things you should know about plumbing?
Even if you are a novice or too busy to take care of it yourself, plumbing is one of those aspects of the house that deserves attention.
First, what is meant by plumbing ? This denomination includes zinc work (which captures water and evacuates it such as gutters, gutters, etc.), central heating and sanitary plumbing (mainly water supply and evacuation of waste water, but also hot water and installation of toilets).
The word plumbing obviously comes from the word “lead”, a material which is now prohibited for multiple reasons. Now we use copper or PVC instead.

Then, having said that, it is important to know some basic things about its installation:
the toilet is not a trash can where you can throw whatever you want.
If you have low water pressure, removing and replacing the aerator is often the best way to fix the problem. It gets clogged over time due to minerals.
If you have a leak, you can take a look at the valve, turn off the water supply, keep the nut on or replace the valve gasket. Each situation is unique, but sometimes the solution is simple and does not require a plumber to come.
An important point to mention is that it is often better to hire a plumbing professional rather than trying to do everything yourself.
This area often takes on a dimension of urgency because the problems encountered are often very annoying and must be dealt with immediately.
