DIY Plumbing Working With Plastic Pipe - Home improvement is still possible under a tight budget when plastic pipes are used for plumbing needs. Whether old pipes need to be replaced or extended, its not a problem because plastic pipe can be connected easily even to a metal pipe system. They cost less, weigh less, and join effortlessly through the use of cement solvents. A hacksaw is all you need, some compression fittings and cement to create lasting waterproof joints.
Flexible plastic pipe use is limited only to supply systems. Compression fittings are used to connect them instead of solvent cements. Generally, they are used for interior systems for hot and cold water. Plastic pipe can also be used for exterior water supply systems. Polybutylene can withstand high temperatures, is sturdy and slightly more expensive than the rigid pipe. In remodeling jobs, flexible pipe is preferred for passing through lawn irrigation system, floor, walls, and ceilings. These pipes are strong theres a chance they might be damaged so dont bend on sharp curves. Extra support ensures more stability in long runs.
Using A Portable Flow Meter - The technology for flow measuring has changed radically in the last ten years. Before then it was necessary to actually open a pipe and put in a tool in order to measure the flow. Now you can attach a couple of transducers and get an accurate measurement of the gas or liquid flowing inside. A portable flow meter will allow you to measure different areas in a pipe as well as only have one unit to measure multiple locations. The technology that makes this possible is called transit time.
