Tracer Wire

Tracer wire was designed to aid in finding pipe. This wire is generally laid within the plumbing system while the pipe is being laid. It can be laid right next to the pipe or within the pipe itself. It allows the wire to be found from above ground with the use of a special machine, outlining the plumbing system below the ground. This is helpful in that it allows the pipes to be found without having to dig into the ground wasting time and money to do so. Tracer wire also has a color coding system to show what pipes are being used for what application. The tracer wire color coding system consists of 5 different colors. The colors are red, yellow, orange, blue, and green. Red indicates electrical use, yellow indicates gas, orange is for communication, blue indicates potable water and green is used in association with sewage systems.

Water Meters

Water meters are used to measure the amount of water that is used by a single residential unit or an entire commercial building. When it comes to water meters; Displacement Meters, Velocity Meters and Water Meter Registers are most commonly used. Each of these meters uses a different method to measure the amount of water moving through them. Each meter has a face that looks much like a clock, called Registers. Water meter registers are the face of the meter that often displays the information that it is gathering during water usage. The information that is gathered by the water meter register is often read manually to determine the amount of water used. These registers can also be transmitted digitally.

Fire Hydrants

Within public water works systems, there are always fire hydrants installed on every city block to maintain the safety of the area and provide access for the local fire department to use. Fire hydrants are designed to disperse a large amount of water in the event of an emergency. PlumbersStock offers fire hydrants at reasonable prices. Most hydrants come with a one-year warranty.
