Every home building has a plumbing system installed, and at American Plumbing Co., we offer Emergency Plumber services that enable us to operate on any plumbing system in San Diego. We'll give you a brief explanation if you get the search result "What are the three main plumbing systems?" in a home that we work on. Potable Water, Sanitary System and Gas Line.
1. Potable Water
The Water System is the incoming lines that will distribute water to all the plumbing fixtures. These are usually either Copper piping or Plastic piping.
I have always preferred a copper line system. Rather a plastic piping water system. Especially since it is a pressurized system.
Drinking water is the essential plumbing system. Because We can Only do without water for only a few days.
2. Sanitary plumbing systems
All wastewater from bathrooms, cooking and washing, is removed via the sanitary plumbing systems. The Water system and the Sanitary system are the primary plumbing systems.
Although there is also a gas line system. I will talk more about this on another post under a gas line system.
Anyways primary varieties of this plumbing system that can be installed:
These efficiently gather the wastewater and transport it to the sewage network by utilizing the natural slope of the land. Additionally, these are mostly utilized in areas with infrequent flooding and low water tables.
Within the system is an interceptor tank with a chamber unit that houses a tiny electrical pump. Small pressure lines installed underground are used to move the garbage to the primary sewage plant.
These consist of charged ground, recovered ground, seasonal places, or flat areas. The sewage fittings are connected by vacuum valves using a central vacuum station.
Storm water Plumbing Systems
They are placed with special properties to make sure the water is successfully taken away. Away from the following, the water can be collected and moved:
Roof The roof is built to make sure that water drains into the pipes and is removed from the region. The shape and size of the down pipes and roof will be affected by how much precipitation is received.
The surface's tilt prevents water from lingering in paved or unpaved areas. Adjacent drains can be used, but water needs to be moved elsewhere before it can quickly collect on the flat surface.
These subterranean drains catch storm water and direct it to a drain before it is discharged to neighboring properties and the like. Visit our blog for a more in-depth explanation of what a subsoil drain is.
3. Gas Line
A Gas line is usually a metal called black pipe for interior gas line. For a exterior gas line you are supposed to use galvanized piping. For the reason that the piping will not corrode as easily and will last a long time because it is exposed to the elements.
When installing a gas line there is a Plumbing Code book which is used to size the piping. There is a chart which is used to install the piping.
In the chart it There is a Total distance and Total amount of BTU s which means the total amount of gas usage that would be used if all the fixtures where to be used.
