Plumbing glossary: Q
To be completely frank, there are not too many plumbing terms that begin with a Q, so this week’s plumbing glossary is going to be quickie.
These are the Q words you need to know.
Quench – accelerated cooling, frequently in water (oil, water)
Quick closing valve – a valve or faucet that closes automatically when released manually or that is controlled by mechanical means for fast action closing
Yes, that’s all folks, but we’re going to throw in one more whilst we’re here… If you have a plumbing emergency, always call out a qualified plumber who has the experience and paperwork to prove it.
