How often do you think about all of the pipes that come out from your home or that divert water daily away from the building? Probably never.
Pipework is essential to many functions in our homes whether it is to feed a gas supply into our boilerts, take waste water away from the house or to carry water away from the gutterting that is located around the edge of our roof. Although essential to many of our household needs this is one area that people tend to neglect.
When damage occurs to any of these pipes it can cause wider issues. For example if your rainwater downpipe suffers a crack you can find that water starts to spill down the edge of your house or collects in a pool at the bottom. This can cause further problems such as mould and damp to occur as well as potentially causing a slip hazard. There are ways in which you can protect pipes from cracks, knocks and splits. Pipe protectors like the ones you can find at https://www.meterbox.co.uk/pipe-protectors are made from galvanised metal and encase the pipework to help protect it from damage, both accidental and deliberate vandalism. They can be found in a variety of lengths and colours so that you can protect differing lengths of pipe and also make it aesthetically pleasing.
