Many homeowners & commercial business are not prepared for the unexpected, and sometimes experience issues such as leaking pipes and dripping taps that create unwanted stress.

Are you ready for the unexpected..... Taking a little bit of time out of your busy day to understand important aspects of your home & work place will make a huge difference. With this in mind, Metro Rod Coventry & Leicester are going to explain the difference between plumbing & drainage so you can be better prepared for the unexpected.

What is Plumbing? 

Plumbing is essential to any commercial business or residential property. The pipes, fittings, heating require a water supply. Plumbers cover water coming into the property, this is why it is important to make sure all your plumbing is correct.

Many of us attempt to fix issues around our homes to save money, this could be very costly, if you are unsure of what works need to be done. Calling a plumber could save you time & money and most importantly stress.

Why a professional Plumber is important: 

  • If your plumbing is incorrect, the structure of your home could be damaged due to a leaking pipe.
  • Incorrect plumbing could also lead to low water pressure. Having low water pressure is common, this could be due to air being caught in your pipes, or if you have a faulty stop tap or a leak on the pipework.
  • Are you noticing mould around certain areas inside your building, and are unsure as to where it has came from, call a plumber, there could be many reasons behind the mould but this could indicate a leak on your pipework that has been ongoing for a while. I would not advise to attempt to repair a leaking pipe as this could make the issue worse and cause structural damage.
  • If you are noticing that the flush control system is not working correctly in the gents urinals, then call a plumber as you could be wasting lots of money & water.


What is Drainage?

Drainage is waste water that is carried away from your home and business. Drainage covers water going out of your property and building, if all sewer pipes are clear and free flowing this will allow your waste to travel to the nearest sewerage treatment works or septic tank.

Why professional drainage care is important:

  • A poor drainage system could lead to subsidence and structural damage to your property due to a build up of unwanted waste water. You could start seeing cracks in your walls.
  • Instead of pouring fats down the drain, wait until fats have dried then dispose into a plastic container. This will prevent blockages and defects with the underground pipework.
  • A musty smell can also be a symptom of a poor drainage system.
  • If you notice bad smells that keep on reoccurring coming into your property/business there could be a possible defect with your drainage system, the best thing to do is call a professional drainage engineer to assist. Dont try to resolve the issue by yourself as this could make the issue worse, however if this is not reported and left unattended this could lead to unwanted rodents coming into your property/business.
