Plumbing and Piping Plans

Being a system that conveys fluids in order to apply them for different reasons, plumbing is the process that uses valves, pipes, tanks, different plumbing fixtures and other apparatuses, mainly for conveying the fluids. HVAC, potable water delivery and waste removal are one of the most common uses for plumbing. At the same time, the mentioned list of plumbing purposes is not limited.

Plumbing infrastructure is known to be critical to both sanitation and public health. Pipefitters and boilermakers may be mistaken for the plumbers, but they only work with piping as part of their trade. Although, their work may include some plumbing as well.

There are main categories of plumbing subsystems or systems, such as an arrangement of the potable hot and cold tap water supply, plumbing drainage venting, fuel gas piping, septic systems and sewage systems either with or without the hot water heat recycling as well as the treatment systems and grey water recovery, surface, rainwater and subsurface water drainage, hydronics, such as both cooling and heating systems that utilize water in order to transport thermal energy (e.g., in some of the district heating systems).

Plumbing and Piping Plans solution can be used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software having the pre-made piping and plumbing plans examples, templates as well as stencil libraries full of the representations of the plumbing, the valves design elements and the pipes to develop both water and plumbing systems. Using the Plumbing and Piping Plans solution it becomes easier to draw any needed Plumbing plan, Piping plan, PVC pipe plans, PVC pipe furniture plans, Plumbing floor plan, Half pipe plans, Pipe bender plan or Plumbing layout plan.

And no less important question — how to read plumbing plans? Adding the legend will make your plan easily understandable for anyone. The cold and hot water supply systems, different plumbing systems, waste water engineering systems and water lines may be illustrated with the help of the mentioned solution while constructing the buildings and learning the way to read all these plans in a correct way.

Many interior designers, architects, builders, plumbers and other technicians can use the Plumbing and Piping Plans solution as the useful tool for developing any needed plumbing plan as well as for creating the annotated schematics or diagrams of waste water disposal systems.

Example 7: House Water Heating

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Plumbing and Piping Plans Solution. An experienced user spent 25 minutes creating this sample.

This plumbing and piping plan sample illustrates the water heating system, which is a thermodynamic process with a goal of heating water above its initial temperature for further application, by means of using the energy source. Hot water has an extensive range of uses, these are the cleaning in domestic conditions and on the enterprises, space heating, bathing and cooking, as well as drying when used in towel rails and batteries. In systems of the water heating are applied the appliances that provide a continual supply of hot water, these are the hot water heaters, hot water tanks, boilers, heat exchangers, geysers, calorifiers. The represented water heating system is realized in a large house with several bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, utility room, and lounge.

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Plumbing and Piping Plans Solution. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.

This plumbing and piping plan sample depicts a detailed scheme of delivering tap water in the cafe on its floor plan. City or municipal cold water enters the building through the main pipe of large diameter, within a building are used the 1/2" copper pipes. It is also represented the distribution of cold and hot water in a cafe. When water enters the building, it is heated with the gas water heater. Tap water is distributed through the indoor plumbing and is used for the technical needs, cleaning, laundry, washing hands, etc. For cooking in cafes and restaurants is applied potable water that is obtained by passing tap water through special filters. It is recommended to thought-out beforehand the places of installation the water purification devices and mark these places on the diagram.
