Whether you own a house or rent an apartment, you should be familiar with your home plumbing system. Basic knowledge of your system is essential in minimizing potential damage during a plumbing emergency.
If you have a basic grasp of the system, you will be able to clearly explain the situation to your Plumber Chicago.
What do you know about your residential plumbing system? There are two distinct plumbing systems in your home. One plumbing system brings fresh water into your house. Because it is pressurized, the clean water is capable of reaching every fixture in your house or apartment. At the same time, the drainage system in your house is used to remove your wastewater. There are three elements to the drainage system, namely drain, waste, and vent; which is why it is also known as the DWV system. Collecting sewage from homes, buildings and industries through the DWV system, sanitary sewer systems, also known as foul sewers, carry wastewater and waste product to municipal treatment facilities.
Apart from the downward tilting pipes which transport wastewater away from your house, proper flow of wastewater is ensured by air admitted into the drainpipes from vents protruding through the roof. A trap, the curved section of the drainpipe attached to every fixture, keeps unpleasant odors and sewer gases from entering your house. Working together, these features make up a fully-functioning and efficient plumbing system.
Plumbing Expert Tip
Always ask your plumber to insulate your pipes before winter hits. Those cold Chicago winters can cause your pipes to freeze and even break.
Tubs, faucets, toilets, showers and sinks are all commonly recognized home fixtures. Pipes send water to all fixtures, and drain pipes remove wastewater from them. Each plumbing fixture presents its own unique problems, but if a fixture has a leak or a broken pipe the first course of action is the same for all fixtures: look for the shutoff valve near the fixture and turn it off. Regular maintenance will help you prevent fixture-related problems, so ask your professional Chicago IL plumber to check those fixtures and home appliances which require constant water supply.
Plumbing work is an inseparable part of kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects. Rerouting pipes and drainage systems, installing new plumbing fixtures, sealing leak sources and repairing toilets, sinks, showers and bathtubs – are all plumbing remodeling tasks that Plumber Chicago conducts at competitive costs.
