Since they are hidden behind the walls and in the floors, drain lines often represent the most neglected parts of our homes. We start to acknowledge them only when they are not able to fulfill their purpose anymore and begin to cause trouble.

How Do Most Kitchen Drains Work:

Most drainage systems in the kitchen are essentually the same whether septic or sewage. Supply systems rely on pressure but most drainage systems do. Because the drainage systems pitch downwards it causes waste to leave the system. Gravity pulls the waste along. The sewer line continues this downward flow to a sewage treatment facility or a septic tank.

Drains can be very complex including vents, traps and cleanouts . The vents sticking up from the roof of your house allow air to enter the drainpipes. If there were no air supply coming from the vents, wastewater would not flow out properly and the water in the traps would need to be siphoned away.

Toilets, sinks, and tubs are fixtures. In addition, an outside faucet is a fixture and so is a washing machine. All devices that draw freshwater and discharge wastewater are fixtures, and all are designed to keep the supply and drainage systems strictly segregated.

Here are a few tips to prevent clogging.

For toilets, there are items that many people would think are normal to place in a toilet that actually are quite harmful to your system and can cause clogging.
Avoid putting items in your toilet like:
Pre moistened daiper wipes
Feminine Hygiene products
Paper Towels
These can cause your toilets to clog.

Hair is a common clog in showers and can cause damage as well as a terrible smell in your clogged drains. If you are having constant trouble with hair in your shower and drains you may want to install a hair catcher.
