Tools and terms commonly used in Plumbing:
Hydro Jetting: Is normally used to clear lines 1 1/2 inch or larger of blockages. Hydro jetting is an often inexpensive, efficient and timesaving means to remedy a blocked drain. Every Quik Rooter plumber is equipped with a variety of hydro jetting tips and heads to deliver the appropriate high-pressure stream of water and clear your drain of any material that is causing a blockage.

Video Inspection: A service used to locate the source of a blockage or to find a hidden leak by having a plumber feed a camera attached to a line of cable down a drain or pipe. The camera allows you to see inside the pipe by sending a video to a television screen. Video inspection technology is especially useful if you are experiencing repeated blockages in your home. Repeated blockages are a sign that there may be a bad section in your pipe caused by a breakage or invasion of tree roots. Video inspection can be used to find the precise area in your line where there is a blockage, breakage or invasion of tree roots.

Trench-less sewer line replacement: Is a new technology in the world of plumbing that helps to eliminate the need to dig trenches in order to replace sewer lines. In trench-less sewer line replacement steel cables and high-pressured hydraulic pumps are used to remove dirt and clear a path underground to insert new pipe. Trench-less sewer line replacements are advantageous in that customers are able to get around expensive replacements of new landscaping, cement or asphalt.

Valves and fittings: Fittings are used by plumbers to join two pieces of straight pipe or tubing in the required angle or to connect two different sizes of pipe in order to maneuver the stream of liquid in a desired manner. Elbows, barbs, nipples, plugs, tees, crosses and caps are all types of common fittings. Valves control the stream of water or gas flow by opening or blocking a certain pathway. A hot or cold water tap, valves connected to hot water heater systems, dishwashers or those fitted to washing machines or controlling gas flow are all forms of valves. Rest assured knowing every Quik Rooter plumber is an expert in every aspect of plumbing.

Plumbing fixtures: An end device designed to deliver or drain water for a particular use. Examples of plumbing fixtures include toilets, urinals, kitchen and bathroom sinks, bathtubs, showers, bidets, drinking fountains, connections for water hoses (hose bibs), and terminal valves for humidifiers, icemakers or dishwashers.

Faucet: A regulator used to control the flow of liquid. In layman's terms a faucet is often attached to a bathroom or kitchen sink and is the portion that delivers the water.

Washer: Are made of rubber or plastic and help to create a watertight seal often around valves. An example of a washer is an O-ring, which is used to seal around valve stems.

Thermocouple: Small electric generator, most commonly used on hot water heaters in the home. Electron flow between the hot junction of 1200 degrees F and cold junction of 600 degrees F creates millivoltage.

Pipe fitting: Is the occupation of repairing or installing tubing or piping systems. This work includes the selection and preparation of pipe or tubing, the process of joining it together with various techniques, and the location and repair of leaks.

Piping and tubing: Hollow cylinder or a tube used in plumbing to transports sewer, gas, waste and water. There are three main types of pipe used in plumbing: copper, galvanized steel or plastic. It's important to use the same type of pipe when making repairs or modifying existing systems.

Galvanized pipe: Commonly found in the supply lines of homes that are older than 20 years and is rarely used in new construction.

Plastic pipe: Are becoming more commonly used due to their durability, lightweight and ease of use. There are five main types of plastic pipe including: PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) -usually made in white and approved only for cold water use, PVC-DWV (Polyvinyl Chloride drain/ waste/vent)- also made in white and used in vent or drain waste systems , CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride)-made in beige and are used in hot or cold water service lines Polybutylene- made usually in beige or gray flexible coils and is the only flexible pipe used on hot and cold service lines and Polyethylene-usually made in black and approved for cold water use. (ABS) or Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene is another form of rigid black plastic pipe used to repair and replace waste, drain or vent lines.

Copper pipe: Are made in four types, Type M- is the thinnest of the copper pipe and used for interior cold and hot water supply lines, Type L-used on interior hot and cold water supply lines, Type K-has the thickest walls and is used in underground lines in the supply system and Type DWV (drain/waste/vent) used for the vent and drain waste system.
