Water is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms. It is vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients.
Water and Basement Conversions
Groundwater Drainage & Waterproofing Most basements use a cavity membrane which traps damp and channels it down the side of the basement walls and into a sump where it is pumped away. Alternatively, tanking is applied as a render or series of waterproof membranes to create a watertight structure.
Water vs Damp Proofing
There is a distinct difference between dampproofing and waterproofing. Dampproofing is intended to keep out soil moisture while waterproofing keeps out both moisture and liquid water. Dampproofing is a coating, usually asphalt-based, that is either sprayed on or hand applied to the outside of the wall.
Plumbing and Heating
Plumbing is any system that conveys fluids for a wide range of applications. Plumbing uses pipes, valves, plumbing fixtures, tanks, and other apparatuses to convey fluids. Heating and cooling (HVAC), waste removal, and potable water delivery are among the most common uses for plumbing, but it is not limited to these applications. The word derives from the Latin for lead, plumbum, as the first effective pipes used in the Roman era were lead pipes. In the developed world, plumbing infrastructure is critical to public health and sanitation. Boilermakers and pipefitters are not plumbers although they work with piping as part of their trade and their work can include some plumbing.
