21:44Sewage in an apartment
At the present time is difficult to imagine an apartment or cottage without the appropriate utilities. One of the major engineering systems, without which a normal human activity in a residential area, a sewage system. It should be noted that we are talking primarily about the rules of hygiene, and only then - about comfort. |
Sewer system can be divided into two parts: internal and external. Internal sewage collects sewage in the room and their withdrawal from the premises. Outside the output to drain waste water outside the building objects and their collection in the central reservoirs. Outside sewer is laid mainly underground with the help of special equipment, and domestic sewage can try to lay their own. Practice shows that the sewage in an apartment with his own hands - it is quite feasible task.
The most common material used to produce sewer pipe is plastic. Plastic pipes are strong, durable and resistant to external influences. One of the most practical options for sewer pipes - a PVC-pipe.
Before installing a sewerage system in a residential area, it is necessary to design a scheme of internal drainage and to calculate how much material you might need. Calculate the approximate rate of pipes and the required number of fasteners (tees, couplings, transitions, end caps, corners, crosses, etc.).
The installation of the sewerage system should begin with the end - in other words, with the last point of the circuit. This will provide the necessary bias (at least 2 cm per 2 m pipe). Due to the slight slope of the wastewater will be displayed fully and without delay, despite the presence of a certain amount of solids.
Some difficulties may arise when interfacing with pipe fittings and fittings. The difficulties usually arise because of the O-rings. For easy fixing the O-rings (rubber bands) should be lubricated with silicone or soap.
When you build it should be remembered that the sockets should be directed to the top of sewage, ie upstream of the working environment.
Plastic drainage pipes are fastened by means of fixed or movable metal clamp with plastic or rubber gasket.
Follow these simple guidelines, and sewage in an apartment with his hands cease to be an impossible task.
