Technology throughout the plumbing industry of Adelaide is forever changing with new products and tools continually being introduced to the plumbing and gas fields.
These products and tools are designed to maximise efficiency and improve how we perform our day to day tasks as plumbers and gas fitters in Adelaide.
By improving efficiency inevitably allows me to pass this benefit onto my clients by saving them money on labour when performing there various plumbing tasks. No matter how small or large the project is with the new technology on today’s market there are plenty of ways to offer cost saving measures.
I personally operate some of the latest tools on the market to maximise my efficiency and allow me to have an advantage over my competitors who have not invested their money into the future of plumbing in Adelaide. Along with these various tools I always try to offer the latest products to my customers allowing them cost saving options also in various different ways.
A few of the most common items which I find myself using as a plumber and gasfitter in Adelaide are:
Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning Machinery: A lot of people think when they have a blocked drain the plumber will just come out and put his electric metal snake machine down there drain and the drain is cleared. Yes this may be the case, BUT this is not the way of the future. Plumbers like me who have invested in the future of clearing blocked drains in Adelaide have invested substantial funds into their business by purchasing a Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning Machine. These hydro jet drain cleaning machines inject 5000psi of high pressure water into the blocked drain with 31 litres coming through the various nozzles available depending on the type of blockage being attended to at the time. By using technology such as the hydro jet drain cleaning machine it allows me to offer my customers a 100% guaranteed drain cleaning service each and every time anywhere in Adelaide I attend a blocked drain pipe. There is nothing that stands in the way of this machine when it comes to blocked drains, blocked storm water drains, blocked grease lines or blocked shower drains the hydro jet drain clearing machine will get through any type of blocked pipe line.
Fernco Non Return Grate Valve: This is a relatively new product to the Adelaide Plumbing market. Previously before the chrome floor grate became popular in bathrooms everyone had a plastic diamond shaped floor grate in there shower, laundry or bathroom. If there was ever an issue with soap suds coming up through the floor they would exchange this for a floor grate which had a ping pong ball inside of it. When the soap suds would rise up the ping pong ball would also rise and eliminate excessive amounts of suds rising through the floor. But now that we have an increase of chrome floor grates on the market a new device has been introduced to us plumbers, the fernco non return floor grate valve. To see what this product looks like and how it works please take a moment to view my video I created whilst installing one of these for my customer in Adelaide.
Viega, B-press and Pro Press Copper Fittings: When you think copper pipes or brass fittings you think oxy and acetylene welding of these pipes. Yes this still exists, BUT there is an alternative to this, it’s called copper crimping, various different manufacturers have their own product with different names such as Viega, Pro Press or B-Press this is an amazing advance in the installation of copper pipes and repairing of burst/broken copper pipes. These products are available to suit both water and gas and range from really small sizes such as ¼” and go all the way up to 4” diameter. Yes these fittings are a lot more expensive than the traditional welded fittings but the installation times and applications these fittings can be used in far out way any cost difference. These fittings can be used whilst water is still flowing and the joint can be crimped in a matter of seconds, the chance of a leak is almost next to none (providing joint preparation is done to the manufacturer’s recommendations). This has been a great addition to the plumbing market; once again the initial out lay is quite a sum of money but in the long run the savings in customer satisfaction and minimal down time in emergency plumbing situations far out way this in my opinion.
What I have talked about this week in my blog about plumbing and gas in Adelaide is what I find to be the most beneficial plumbing tools and products to my business. As previously stated there are new items coming into light every day, but the items such as hydro jet drain cleaning and Viega propress technology are what I have invested my money in to date and have had huge success with this new line of technologies.
