It is not a secret that a plumbing issue can severely shut down your commercial or residential building. Thus, it is very crucial to have your hands on a strong pipe, very selective, and suitable for your building. Pipes play a major role in the construction of your building. It is not enough to simply approach a plumber now and then as soon as the plumbing needs arise. Investing in the right type of pipes and having regular upkeep on it will catch the issue before it arises. A right investment ensures plumbing issues don’t arise anytime soon.  In any building construction that takes place in Auckland, there is piping systems considered and fitted, to serve several purposes. Let’s have a look at the different reasons why a pipe is needed in the construction of the building.    

  •   To supply and circulate the water throughout the building         
  • To dispose of rainwater above the building ground
  •    To drain dirt and wastewater to sewer and septic tank         
  • To dispose of the water from washbasins

The Different Types of Pipes:

Cast Iron Pipes    

They are designed especially for rain and soil water disposing system. These pipes are strong, durable, made up of sand cast process. Because they are the heaviest of all pipes in the plumbing system, the usage is pretty selective. They are designed to meet the needs of heavy pressure where the liquid flow is in a large amount. According to an article in  https://www.forbes.com, the major problem every homeowner faces is the water leak damage issue. Thus, choosing a suitable pipe is important for ensuring no leakage.

Galvanized Pipes  

  Galvanized iron pipes are quite economical as compared to that of copper ones, but the biggest disadvantage is they easily corrode in acidic water. In places where the corrosion issues won't seem to be common, these pipes are used extensively and they work wonderfully. Also, for the usage of this pipe, hammering is required to remove the scales formed by the hard water.

Stoneware pipes 

  These pipes work majorly for the use of underground sewage and drainage system. To be precise they are especially used in low-cost construction buildings. Installation of these pipes requires an experienced   plumber  Auckland   who can place it and provide good supervision. Also, they are relatively cheaper!

Polythene Pipes  

  They are also named plastic pipes, majorly used for cold water services. These plastic pipes have indeed, dominated the plumbing industry over other pipes because of their key specifications. They tend to not corrode, being light in weight and comparatively cheaper they tend to be an ideal option for building constructions works. Also, there is no requirement for threading plus the pipes are easy to install. One thing they are not good with is high temperature!


  Looking for a complete plumbing setup that works for a lifetime without giving you any pain in the future? Brass is the most popular and smartest choice! To attain maximum durability, you must ensure that the alloy has at least 85% copper in it. Plus, these pipes can keep you away from rust and friction loss too. In addition to it, the easy to thread capacity will steal your attention. In commercial building construction and especially in the area set up for water tanks, hot water flowing, wells etc. brass pipes are used. 


   So, based on all of these points, selecting the right pipe for building construction seems easier! All of the pipes are different with respect to usage, material and benefits; this overall helps to have a perfect construction of building if used wisely. With the help of a plumber, getting appropriate solution and recommendation is possible. They save your time, energy, money and provide you a good option that works for a long time.
