Plumbing is a system of pipes and fixtures installed in a building for the distribution of potable water and the removal of waterborne wastes. Plumbing is usually distinguished from water and sewage systems, in that a plumbing system serves one building, while water and sewage systems serve a group of buildings or a city. GSP Restoration provides complete plumbing services for your construction, remodeling, or repair project.

Home plumbing is largely a network of pipes and the fittings that connect them, carrying water in and out of the house by two basic forces of nature: pressure and gravity. Water fixtures--sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets--and water-using appliances like dishwashers and washing machines tap into this system, receiving fresh water from one set of pipes and discharging used water through another.

Your home’s plumbing consists of two basic systems: a water-supply system and a drain/waste-vent (DWV) system. In the water-supply system, the water usually enters the house through a main service pipe and meter, unless you have a private well. Pressure, supplied by gravity from a local water tower or from a well pump, pushes the water through the system. Parallel supply lines carry hot and cold water to fixtures and appliances.

Pipe normally has thicker walls and may be threaded or welded, where tubing is thinner-walled and requires special joining techniques such as soldering, compression fitting, crimping, or for plastics, solvent welding. In addition to the straight pipe or tubing, many fittings are required in plumbing systems, such as valves, elbows, tees, and unions.

Plumbing supply stores can provide a wide variety of fixtures that can be installed for the home owners. Some examples of fixtures include water closets (toilets), urinals, bidets, showers, bathtubs, lavatories, utility and kitchen sinks, drinking fountains, ice makers, humidifiers, air washers, fountains, floor drains, and garbage disposers.

Plumbing contractors and trades people often specialize, but most are 'general' -- they install new systems and repair existing ones. However, two common specializations are 1) drain cleaning and repair, and 2) non-potable applications like for HVAC systems. Almost all plumbing work is regulated by government or quasi-government agencies due to the direct impact on the public's health, safety, and welfare.

Plumbing installation and repair work on residences and other buildings generally must be done according to plumbing and building codes to protect the inhabitants of the buildings and to ensure safe, quality construction to future buyers. If permits are required for work, plumbing contractors typically secure them from the authorities on behalf of home or building owners.

GSP Restoration provides a total solution for every project.  Whether you have a pipe break or a new installation for a home addition, we can serve all of your needs.  Our experienced licensed plumbing contractors provide cost effective solutions and value to our customers while meeting all of your local and state government codes for the plumbing work we do.
