There are three essential parts of a residential plumbing system:

Residential plumbing systemPart 1: Water supply system-

There are 2 types of water supply system-

    • Direct water supply system: All water outlets present in the house get the water supply directly from the mains. Portable water is available at all taps (faucets). This is only possible where the water supply is available 24×7 with required water pressure which is sufficent enough to deliever water at the deisred pressure at all the taps (faucets).
    • Indirect Water supply system: Water is supplied to the storage water tank via mains pipe. Further, the water is supplied from the water storage tank to the house outlets. Indirect Water supply system is useful where supply of water from mains is not available. This water supply system is also at those places where water supply from mains does not have enough pressure to supply water at all taps with desired pressure.
