9 Topics You Should Know Regarding Plumbing

Similar to backing-up plumbing, clogged drain may be another larger cause than just debris in the drain. This goes along the lines of tree roots getting into sewer lines, causing clogs and then eventually full blockages. If you suspect that there is a problem with your sewer system, give a trusted plumbing company a call. They will come out and initially use an auger to try to break up what ever is causing the blockage. However, in some causes the problem won’t be fixed by this method. So, they can use a camera inspection that shows exactly what and where the problem is.

The angle of the slope is important and there is a limit to the length that the trap arm can be before it reaches a vent. The length of the trap arm can be no less than two pipe diameters before venting or it will create a crown vent (which will cause the water to be siphoned from the trap and thus allow sewer gases to enter the premises) but the developed length can not drop more than one pipe diameter prior to meeting the vent. The reason for this is that the water will block off the flow in the pipe and prevent air from passing through. Thus, a 1-1/2″ trap arm (which must have a 1/4″ per ft slope) may be no less than 3″ in length, but no more than 5′. The blocked airway is what brings me to the purpose of a P-trap. No, its not to catch pee, its just that it is shaped roughly like a horizontal P. When you run the shower or sink, the water goes down the drain and in to the trap and then pushes around the bend and up to the trap weir and then to through the trap arm (the horizontal run of pipe exiting the P-trap up until it reaches the vent). This is sometimes called the fixture arm. The fixture arm serves as both a waste line and a vent line. A certain amount of water remains inside the trap, which prevents sewer gases from coming back up and entering the house.

The strange but true story happened just over a month ago, as a Norwegian flight from Oslo to Munich carrying a platoon of plumbers to a business function was forced to reroute due to toilet trouble. The inherent funniness of the situation was not lost on Frank Olsen, managing director of Rørkjøp, the plumbing company hosting the event. “We did not take the risk to send a plumber outside at 10,000 meters high [approximately 6 miles or 30,000 feet],” said Olsen. “There was a good atmosphere in the plane with the irony about the broken toilets.” Olsen is correct: the plumbing problem could not have been corrected from inside the plane. And with no plumber expected to pull off a Mission: Impossible-style mid-air repair, it was time to ground the flight. Despite the potty-humor appeal of this story, we know you’re probably not working on airplane plumbing (but if you’ve ever wondered how they achieve that super-suction, or just where the waste goes, check this out ). So without further ado, here are the top three challenges facing us land-based DIY plumbers. It’s the flush of fear: you pull the handle and the water rises… and keeps rising. If you’re lucky, it stops before it spills over the bowl. If you’re not, it’s time to break out the mop.
