A plumbing system is the combination of pipes and fittings installed in a building or premises. There are two types of plumbing systems in all facilities: One is in charge of the provision of drinking water, while the other is in charge of disposing of waste water.
Water service plumbing work includes the installation, alteration, repair, or replacement of water pipes, tanks, taps, and fittings in the drinking water supply system for the conveyance of PUB-supplied water.
Sanitary work involves the installation, replacement, or relocation of sanitary discharge pipes and sanitary appliances (water closet or WC, urinal, sink, and so on), as well as the installation, replacement, or relocation of toilet bowls and sanitary piping systems for transporting used water from the premises/building to the used water system.
PIPES-Tubular pieces or tubular cylinders, which are typically but not necessarily circular in cross-section, are used to transport fluids, slurries, granules, and small solid masses. Since hollow pipe is significantly stiffer per unit weight than solid sections, it can be used for structural purpose SEE TYPES OF PIPES.
PIPES FITTING– Installing a device that connects one or more pipes and/or changes the direction of a straight pipe line. Most changes in the direction of pipe in a drainage system must have a radius of curvature big enough to prevent particles from collecting and offer appropriate hydraulic flow characteristics, according to codes. These fittings are referred to as fittings or sanitary-type fittings, and they must be used in drainage systems according to the code. Drainage-pattern fittings aren’t required for vent pipework.SEE TYPES OF FITTING
PLUMBING VENTS– Plumbing vents are pipes that connect the waste pipes to the exterior of the structure, commonly via the roof. The vent pipes allow sewage gases to escape to the outdoors rather than releasing them within the residence. The vent pipes allow oxygen to enter the waste pipes as well. This allows bacteria to break down sewage aerobically, which implies the presence of oxygen. SEE TYPES OF VENTS
Plumbing Fixtures– A plumbing fixture receives water, releases water and/or waste, and provides a service to the user. Each fixture is made for a certain purpose in order to keep the public’s health and salvation. Plumbing fittings are commonly referred to as “sanitary ware.” SEE TYPES OF FIXTURES.
SEPTIC TANK-A septic tank is a waterproof compartment composed of bricks, concrete, fiberglass, PVC, or plastic that receives blackwater from cisterns or pour-flush toilets and liquid waste from a conduit from within a structure or an outdoor toilet for initial treatment. Solids and organics are reduced through settling and anaerobic processes, although the treatment is only modest.
Septic tanks are waterproof structures that receive raw sewage and include input and output connections. It’s basically a sewage settling process in which raw sewage is retained for a specific amount of time, generally 24 hours. The basic function of a septic tank is to act as a settling tank and break up sediments so that the effluent produced does not clog the holes in the soil in the leaching field.
