About this deal

Chapter 9 of the IPC describes a variety of methods to vent plumbing fixtures and traps. The methods have been laboratory tested to determine sizing and installation requirements that provide proper venting to a drainage system. The venting methods have also been field-tested, establishing a long history of satisfactory service. Take a look at our full range of soil and waste for further product information What Does The Vent Pipe Do?

In fact, all drainage systems that service dwellings including those found under concrete slabs could be vented because these conditions are common in many geographic areas. Furthermore, even though basement sewer lines may not have liquid effluent flowing through them they still need sufficient air circulation to prevent odours from being trapped within their interior which can lead to nauseating gas accumulation. Why Having a Properly Installed Soil Vent Pipe Work is Important?But why is it important to make this differentiation? Why can't one pipe service all wastewater needs if they both carry it out to the sewer? Why does it matter whether you use soil pipes or waste pipes? The answer lies in what they are used for and the way they are vented. Conversion Bends - used to create changes in direction while also converting the connection type between push-fit and solvent weld. Combination Waste and Vent System. A specially designed system of waste piping embodying the horizontal wet venting of one or more sinks or floor drains by means of a common waste and vent pipe adequately sized to provide free movement of air above the flow line of the drain.

Traditionally, most waste pipes used to be made from either copper, iron, or lead, and many properties may still have systems that are at least partially comprised of these materials. Copper is actually still quite popular today, among some professionals, as the pipes can be made to fit into tighter spaces, are more flexible at the joints (therefore offer good resistance to vibration damage), and have a certain premium aesthetic appeal. The more modern alternative to copper waste pipes, however, is plastic. Each have their own pro's and con's, but the popularity of plastic pipes has grown exponentially due to the fact that they are much less expensive than copper pipes, easier to install, more resistant to corrosion and impact damage, and quieter at high pressure and water speeds. Regulations state that vent pipes that are situated within 3m of an opening window must terminate at least 900mm above the eaves. On a two-storey building that generally means that the open end of the pipe will be above the level of the eaves. One way to avoid such a high-level installation is to use an External Air Admittance Valve at the top of the pipe, which allows air to be drawn in to balance any negative pressure but does not let out any foul gases - it is essentially a one-way valve. Remember, the vent size is not based on the trap or fixture drain (trap arm), but the drain size that continues downstream from the point where the vent and fixture drain connect. The drain size is determined by the fixture unit load in accordance with Tables 709.1, 709.2, 710.1(1), and 710.1(2) in the IPC. Hence, if the drain size is 4 inches (102 mm), a 2-inch (51 mm) vent is required. A 3-inch (76 mm) drain would require a 1½-inch (38 mm) vent. A 2-inch (51 mm), 1½-inch or 1¼-inch (38 or 31.8 mm) drain would require a minimum 1¼-inch (31.8 mm) vent, this being the minimum size allowed.Properly maintaining your soil and waste systems is the best way to avoid the need to repair or replace them, and there are a few simple things you can add to your household maintenance routine to achieve this.

Note: If your property uses a sewage treatment plant, septic tank, or cesspool instead of a connection to the mains drains, there must be AT LEAST one open vent in the system to prevent a dangerous build-up of gasses. Solving pressure build-up with an Air Admittance Valve In this publication, we will present the various approaches to venting that are permitted in the 2021 IPC. You will find that these venting provisions offer the installer and designer different paths to achieving an adequately vented system, which could result in cost savings along with ease of installation in different types of construction.

Fortunately, if you have an existing system of copper piping but want to make repairs or install additional pipework using plastic pipes and fittings, many manufacturers, such as FloPlast, do have compression waste ranges that can make this happen. If you already have an existing plastic waste system, or are looking to install a new one, the biggest choice you have to make is whether to use Push-Fit or Solvent Weld connections. Again, as with the connection choices for plastic soil systems, we have put together a dedicated article, (Push-Fit or Solvent Weld - which waste pipe system is better) to properly evaluate the uses of each.
