Inspection of Diverter Valve
If you notice any discoloration or rusting around the diverter valve, replace it immediately. This part is responsible for controlling the flow of water from the main line into the various fixtures in your house. It is important to maintain proper operation of these valves because if they fail, water could flood your basement or crawlspace. Drain Cleaner If you notice any discoloring or rusting around the drain cleaner valve, replace it immediately because this part is responsible for controlling how much water drains from your sink. If it fails, water could flood your bathroom or crawlspace.
Drain cleaners are usually used to clean clogged drains. These drain cleaners are designed to break down the grease and other debris that is found in the pipes. In addition, they can remove hair and soap scum from the drain. However, they cannot be used to clear blockages caused by tree roots or other obstructions. Airlocked Pipes An airlock pipe system consists of two parts: the airlock and the pipe. The airlock is installed between the sink and the toilet bowl. The airlock allows sewer gas to escape but prevents odors from escaping. The pipe connects the airlock to the sewer line. Airlocks are available in different sizes and shapes. Most people choose the round type. Airlocks are typically used to prevent odors from escaping into the bathroom. A typical airlock consists of a rubber stopper that fits snugly into the drainpipe. This stopper is connected to a flexible hose that leads to the outside of the house. The hose is attached to a vent pipe that runs to the roof. The vent pipe is located near the chimney flue. This arrangement allows air to flow freely from the bathroom to the roof where it escapes into the atmosphere. Airlocks are not suitable for clearing blockages because they do not allow any liquid to pass through them.
