In order to keep your water quality high, you must prioritize pipe maintenance. Corroded pipes seep copper and lead into your water supply, causing serious health hazards if not properly filtered out. A smoothly operating, efficient plumbing system enables you to have clean, freshwater as close as your faucet and warm water to keep your home and your family clean.
Plumbing is one of the most frequently damaged areas of a house. Poor plumbing can cause overflowing of pipes and leakages that allow humidity to get locked in walls, ceilings, under sinks, and floors and can make your walls look bad. It can also have a dangerous effect on the insides as water can be extremely damaging to any structure.
The most useful method of joining different copper tubes or pipes is with the use of a socket-type, copper or copper alloy fitting into which the tube sections are inserted and fastened by means of filler metal, using either a soldering or brazing process. This type of joint is known as a capillary or lap joint because the socket of the fitting overlaps the tube end and space is formed between the tube and the fitting.
