Hydraulics are at the heart of our everyday lives and yet many Australians do not appreciate how they help us to do our jobs and to do our normal everyday things. People normally associate hydraulics with large pieces of machinery that are used in industrial settings and in the building sector as well. There are many hydraulic tools that allow us to complete work more easily and in a faster time and we have a firm appreciation for these when trying to do our jobs every single day. If you were to ask any Australian however where they think that hydraulics are used in other aspects of our lives, it’s likely that you would get a confused look.
The reality of it all, however, is that hydraulics are used in very complex and simple applications every single day of the week all across this great country of ours and over time many will need some kind of hydraulic repair in Sydney. We are quite fortunate in that we have many skilled service providers that can fix and address the vast majority of hydraulic issues for us. If you are somewhat confused as to how we use hydraulics in our lives, then maybe the following can help to answer your questions.
- Every time you get your car serviced – If you are taking proper care of your vehicle then you will get it serviced on a regular basis and at the bare minimum, you will make sure that the oil and filter gets changed every 10,000 km. When you go into your local garage, you will see your car up on a lift off the ground and the reason why it can be lifted up is because of hydraulics.
- Every time you go to the theatre – If you are a theatre buff and you enjoy going to the Sydney Opera House to enjoy a play or a concert or two then you should be aware that in order for the stage to be raised up so that you can properly see the performance, hydraulics are used for this function.
- Every time that you go to the bakery – We all love the smell of fresh bread or cookies and so many of us make a regular appointment to the local bakery to stock up on the things that we like. What many people don’t realise is that in the background hydraulics are used to produce these same breads and pastries for us.
Then there is the office chair that you sit in every single day and you have to adjust because someone else has sat in it before you. Hydraulics allows you to raise the chair up and down and to tilt it forwards and backwards. The same rule applies when you go to get your hair cut and your barber will use hydraulics to adjust the chair’s height as well. It is clear to see then that we rely heavily on hydraulics every single day of our lives no matter what we are doing.
