How to use inflatable pipe plugs
Pipe Plugs are used for sewer venting, rainwater collection and to prevent sewer backups. Sewers have their origins in the early days of man, when they were the primary method of being able to dispose of waste water. The term “sewer” is derived from the Latin word septicem which means “well-watered”.
These systems are still in use today and they require several methods to function effectively. One of these methods is being able to allow storm water to enter a sewage system that is being flushed down a storm drain. Proper drainage and water collection are very important for this system to function properly.
A home sewer or sewage system will have two main connections. One is from a house’s outside wall to the source of the water that is entering the home and another is from the water source inside the home to the house’s sewage system. The use of pipe plugs is a simple way to collect water before it leaves the house. This will also prevent flooding at the household sinks and toilet.
Depending on the size of the main storm drain and the size of the pipe plugs being used there may be a few reasons why the storm drain needs to be adjusted. When the pipes that lead to the outside of the home are larger than the storm drain they can become clogged or damaged. The system will stop working properly.
Sewer drain systems are also designed differently to accommodate this phenomenon. There are also specialized plumbers who use for sewer venting, rainwater collection and storm water collection. These plumbers are trained to locate and plug any possible leaks before a flood occurs.
Sewers can be built in different shapes and sizes, but it is very rare to find them in free-standing forms. In addition to pipes that are free standing sewers have sections that are attached to the ground that are much larger. They are usually built to store an area that cannot be used.
Rainwater collection is the process of collecting rainwater that is going to be used for toilet flushing, washing, and showering purposes. This water will also be needed for washing purposes such as with a sprinkler. Sewers also provide a secondary route for storm water in the event of a flood. They function best when they are located away from any highways, homes, and buildings.
To use for sewer venting, rainwater collection and storm water collection the appropriate size of pipe plugs is needed. In addition to locating them using a local plumber the plugs should be installed with the help of a professional plumber. Pneumatic pipe plugs can be purchased at many online plumbing suppliers.
