Expert Industrial Plumbing in Melbourne
Hiring an industrial plumber requires more work in comparison to hiring a residential plumber, for numerous reasons. Industrial plumbing projects are larger in scope and will often involve specialized plumbing services for completion. There are fewer plumbing companies around that have such a successful track record.
But you have stumbled across one that does – Reed Plumbing & Drainage. We have a team of over 20 qualified plumbing specialists with decades of experience working on industrial projects. This type of plumbing will have special standards and regulations that a general plumbing contractor will not be familiar with. Even if a typical plumbing contractor says they can handle the project, they are simply not going to be familiar with the tools and the layout – costing you more money in the long run.
Save yourself some money right now.
What is industrial plumbing?
This type of plumbing bears many resemblances to commercial plumbing, and the terms are often used interchangeably. The difference is often in the scale of the project, as well as the complexity. Commercial plumbing can refer to plumbing done in small shops in a commercial setting. Industrial plumbers deal with larger projects such as manufacturing plants, government buildings, and corporate office blocks. However, there is certainly a lot of crossover.
What is the difference between industrial and residential plumbing?
Unlike commercial plumbing, there are many differences between industrial and residential plumbing. For one thing, the pipes are of a higher-quality grade in comparison to residential dwellings. The piping materials are stronger. Second, the building is going to be bigger and more complex. Industrial project might involve a 12 story office block, which needs a lot more attention than a single story house. Finally, the fixtures and installation methods will be different, as there are different compliance standards when working with commercial premises in comparison to residential dwellings.
Reed Plumbing & Drainage is familiar with all of the codes and practices of all types of plumbing, so you are in safe hands regardless of what plumbing specialization you are in the market for.
What piping materials are used to transport water in Melbourne?
The rules and regulations surrounding the water supply are governed by Melbourne Water in conjunction with national and international regulations. According to Melbourne Water:
‘Pipes and fittings must be supplied, stored, and installed in accordance with the following relevant Australian Standards or in compliance with the manufacturer’s recommendations:
AS/NZS 2032-2006 Code of Practice for installation of UPVC pipe systems
AS/NZS 2033-2008 Installation of polyethylene pipe systems
AS 2566.2-2002 Buried flexible pipelines – Installation
AS 3690-2009 Installation of ABS pipe systems
AS 3725-2007 Design for installation of buried concrete pipes
AS 4058-2007 Precast concrete pipes (pressure and non-pressure)’
You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing industrial piping. But the installation and storage of these industrial pipes are tightly regulated, and you need to hire a plumbing company that is familiar with these standards.
