To maintain sanitary conditions and keep house neat and clean, every homeowner should take proper care while designing pipe lines for sanitary and sewer of the house. Usually the top of floor trap is not fixed by taking proper level of the floor of building; which creates problem of drainage. Floor trap should be fixed after marking levels of the proposed floor in the building. Here are discussed some precautions for proper implementation of sanitary and sewer pipes.

  • The top of floor traps in toilet and kitchen should be 12 mm to 20 mm down from floor level of building to provide proper slope for easy drainage of water.
  • Sewer lines that cross road or drain should be passed through C.I. or RCC pipes.
  • Greater depth of seal will stop foul air to come to house from sewer.
  • Waste pipes should be connected to main sewer only through gully trap to avoid direct foul smell.
  • The joints of pipes should be filled with spun yarn, lead and ensure proper cocking to avoid any leakage.
  • To check any leakage, close sewer line at one side by using gunny bags or cement mortar and fill in the pipe with water on other side till the pipe is completely filled. After some time the water will come to the surface or in the joints of the pipe.
  • The top of pipe line should be covered with cement concrete after checking leakage.
  • The mouth of pipes should be covered with empty gunny bags to avoid blockage.
  • Keep proper gradient or slope for smooth flow of water and easy cleaning.

Quantity of water used for construction

Inadequate quantity of water has adverse effect on the strength of mortar and cement concrete. The concrete does not produce required results despite using best raw materials, cement and tested water. Sometimes even executing engineers and contractors do not pay proper attention to water cement ratio or quantity of water for concrete mix.

The water mixed in mortar reacts with cement and forms a binding paste which fills small voids in the sand. This creates a close cohesion of sand particles and cement. In cement concrete, the voids formed between sand and coarse aggregate gets filled with the paste forming a cohesive substance/concrete. The water more than required quantity weakens the strength of cement paste. The following quantities of water should be used for one bag mix.
• Approximate 32 liters of water is required where the ratio 1:2:4 of cement concrete is used.
• Approximate 30 liters of water is required where the ratio 1:1.5:3 of cement concrete is used.

The water for ordinary cement concrete mix should be equal to 5% by weight of aggregate and 30% by weight of cement.

Home plumbing system

Home plumbing system is interconnected network of pipes and fittings to carry water in and out of the house. In fact there are three pipe systems like supply, drain-waste and vent system. Supply system carries water to your house and around all water fixtures and appliances. When you open a faucet or valve, the water flows out and when you close it, the flow stops till you open it again. Drain-waste system carries waste out of the house into a sewer outside the house. Vent system carries harmful sewer gasses away. When drainpipe is unfilled, sewer gasses arise and go though vent pipe out of the roof. Traps below each drain remain filled with sufficient water to prevent sewer gasses from seeping out the drain into your home. Vent system also helps maintain atmospheric pressure to help wastes flow easily.
