For the most part, the plumbing system in your home is based around the same designs that have been in place for over a century. Water pressure is what allows water to get up to the faucets in your home, so a pressurized water system guides the indoor plumbing supply. Gravity is what helps move wastewater along, so the sewer pipes in your home are quite simple indeed.
However, beyond the basic concept of sewer lines and water supply pipes, plumbing has advanced a great deal over just the last couple of decades. There are new technologies in plumbing we think any homeowner should know about. That way, when the time does come to call in a plumber, you’ll know that you have someone on the job with the right tools and equipment to make your home run smoothly.
