There are always new ways to save money if you know where to look. Believe it or not, your plumbing is one of these areas. It is generally an afterthought, but this is exactly why there is a lot of saving potential. For example, learning how to maintain your own plumbing setup and fixtures can save you a lot of money that would be spent on hiring a plumbing service. Routine maintenance will also keep your fixtures in good shape which will reduce repair costs over time.
However, this is not as easy as it seems. There are many pitfalls that excitable new plumbers find themselves in. In this video, you will learn how to avoid these pitfalls.
A common mistake is not knowing which type of copper piping to use. There are four main types of copper piping. They are M, L, K, and DWN. M piping is what you will want to use in your home. It is the cheapest and thinnest piping. It is often indicated by red lettering on the sides. If you are replacing the plumbing in your business, consider using L piping. It is more expensive, but is thicker and will do the job. K piping is saved for underground and HVAC needs. Finally, DWN piping is used for drains, waste, and vents.
