Plumbing Terms

Anyone interested in pursuing a career as a plumber ought to become an expert in his or her field and, in order to do so, it's important to memorize the various terms relevant to wholesale plumbing supplies:

  • Wholesale Fixtures - Wholesale fixtures are often sold at heavy duty factories and warehouses in bulk and because these supplies and fittings are sold in bulk, they are often far less expensive than traditional pipes and tubing.
  • Commercial - Some plumbing supplies are designed to be used in a commercial, or workplace, environment.
  • Residential - Some products, like shower drains and faucets, are usually designed to be used in a residential or home environment.
  • Hot Water - It is important that every pipe, fitting, or piece of tubing produces hot water and cold water easily.
  • Steel - Steel is the most popular type of metal used in wholesale plumbing fixtures.
  • Tools - Every professional plumber needs plenty of tools to fix leaky sinks, broken toilets, and other pieces of plumbing equipment.
  • Gas - Gas energy is particularly popular these days and, as such, most plumbers are called upon to fix gas heaters regularly.
  • Fittings - Fittings are needed to ensure that every piece of plumbing equipment works the way it is supposed to. Improperly installed fittings can cause clogs and leaks.
  • Tubing - Tubing is similar to fittings in that they ensure that every piece of plumbing works properly.
  • Fixture - A plumbing fixture may refer to a faucet, drain, sink, toilet, or any other manufactured product that may typically be installed or repaired by a plumber.

    Our lives would be incredibly different without plumbing fixtures. There would be no need for pipes or sinks, and thus no running water. When clogged or leaking, folks call plumbers to fix them using heavy duty specialized tools. Plumbing didn't become a common part of life, until the growth of modern cities in the 19th century. PLumbing existed previously, but was mainly used for public bathing areas in many cultures. Lead was originally used to carry water to and from treatment plants, but copper piping was introduced as a safer tubing option. Modern tubing and fittings, which regulate water flow, are still sometimes made of copper, but can also be made from brass, plastic and other non-toxic materials. Drain system supplies can still contain lead, though the majority are made from steel or plastic. Fixtures are a part of every commercial and residential building. Plumbing fixtures, like showers, drinking fountains and toilets are used by many daily. Fittings connect the pipes from the hot water heater, which may be heated by gas, or a main water supply to the various drains and faucets around the building. If you are looking to purchase new supplies for a plumbing venture, always check wholesale distributors first, especially if you're looking to purchase bulk quantities of plumbing fixtures. You may sacrifice a little quality, especially if you look at a wholesale liquidator, but you'll make it up in price savings. Look for a wholesale or retail dealer that can provide you with the specific plumbing products that you need.
