How Does the Plumbing In My Home Work?

Most people have a general idea of how their house plumbing works, but when there’s a blockage or something wrong, they have no clue what to do. The Youtube video “How Your Home Plumbing Works (From Start to Finish)” has all the information you need to understand what’s going on if you notice that the plumbing stopped working. Let’s find out more!

The plumbing in your home is connected to all the fixtures such as faucets, bathtubs, toilets, and more. The idea is that water will drain down through the pipes under your house toward the municipal drainage.

Your house’s plumbing has four aspects: waste drain, waste vents, potable water, and rainwater management. Usually, the pipework consists of ABS, PVC, or cast iron for heating and vents.

Some homes are not connected to municipal drainage. Instead, they probably have septic tanks, which are usually underground in your backyard. The main drainage connects to that part. In the septic tank, the solids are separated from the liquids, which then pass to a leach or drain field to return to the soil naturally.
