At Graham and Sons we’ve been providing low-cost plumbing and emergency plumber Sydney services for the greater Sydney area for over 10 years. During that time we’ve come across all types of plumbing issues and we’ve learned to expect the unexpected. In homes or buildings that are over 10 years old, it’s not uncommon to find outdated or corroded wiring, sometimes dangerous.
Cable & Wiring Facts
Though many plumbing contractors these days use copper wiring, we often find that older buildings have other types of materials. Over the years, a number of rules and regulations have been formed to control plumbing work, and today’s plumbers must comply with certain standards. In the past, these regulations were not as stringent though. Some plumbing contractors used cheap components and sub-standard wire and cable products.
Many older buildings have knob and tube wiring, which is not safe and is no longer used. In fact, if you have knob and tube, it should be upgraded as soon as possible. Cabling and wiring can be affected by temperature and environmental conditions. If your fuse box or switchboard is located in an area where it is exposed to sunlight, chemicals, or moisture, the components can wear out quickly and become unstable.
Just one short-circuit can cause an plumbing fire. Even a small plumbing fire can cause hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage. Poor or sub-standard wiring can also cost you more on your plumbing bill. Most of today’s homes and businesses must be equipped with the latest wiring and cabling products and technology in order to run the myriad of high-tech gadgets. If you are like most people, you have several computers, expensive TVs and a number of appliances that could be damaged by power surges from faulty wiring.
