If you think that the layout of pipes in the bathroom with theirhands - it is too complicated process, you are wrong.Modern technologies have made it into the system rather simple and accessible to all actions, provided that you have the desire to do everything yourself.
Scheme hot and cold water
To start, you should decide?what kind of plumbing equipment and communications you need in the bathroom (or a combination bathroom):
- bath or shower - you need to connect hot and cold water and sanitation;
- sink - hot and cold water plus sewer;
- toilet - cold water and sewerage;
- washing machine - cold water and drain.
Now calculate the required number of gates overlying water:
- a common hot water - always,
- one common to cold water - always,
- in the cold water supplya washing machine - sure,
- on the cold water supply to the toilet - if you wish (in case the tank will start to leak and cover the whole system, you do not want to).
Detailed wiring diagram of the aqueduct
determine the number of plumbing fixtures that you are going to connect to the water supply and sewerage systems, you must first buy them.Decide where and what will be, noting their location on the floor (in order to not interfere with plumbing, it is better to make it then the bathroom, if possible).
Then take a piece of paper and draw on it pipework.Try to follow the following principles:
- desirable that the tube overlap,
- and water and sewer should be laid as close as possible to each other, so that later they can be closed duct,
- after installing plumbing in its place you have quite easilyto get to the joints of pipes with flexible hoses.
Try not to complicate the pipework in the bathroom with their hands to perform.Everything should be as simple as possible:
- main pipes are laid on the bottom of the floor;
- water taps go through them perpendicular tees up;
- sewer outlets may not have the vertical part and represent only "tee", which includes a flexible hose.
To build a system of polypropylene water pipes, you'll need a special tool, commonly referred to as "soldering".Buy it for one-time work makes no sense, it is much easier to take it out for a couple of days (usually provide this service shops selling pipes).Working with him is quite simple, but it should not be forgotten that it is very hot, so be careful and be sure to read the instructions when using it for the first time.You may even need a first time assistant that will keep "soldering", while you heat the pipes and fittings, and then - to clean it away, so you do not burned.
Fittings for PVC pipe routing
to connect the pipes to each other and rotate them at the right angle, you need PVC fittings (they are sold in the same shops where you buy the pipe).Select them precisely on the pipe diameter.They cost is not too expensive, so take them with a margin of 1-2 pieces in case if you can not exactly solder them on the first try.
To complete the routing of water pipes in the bathroom with their hands, you will need to connect the terminal to the issue of the "American" - a fitting on one side that is soldered to the pipe, and the other is connected through a threadflexible hose.
wiring water pipes in the bathroom with their hands can be done in two ways:
- Moving from the far side of the plumbing fixtures in the main water supply riser.
- Pripaivaya pipe, moving from the riser to the plumbing fixtures.
But when building sewer "soldering" you do not need - they simply are inserted into one another (on their own or with the help of fittings).Assembling the sewer system is quite simple and easy, besides all this is always possible to disassemble and remake.
When the layout of pipes in the bathroom with their hands important not to forget the three main principles:
- pipes should have a slope of plumbing fixtures to the main riser (not less than 3 centimeters in height per meter pipe length);
- pipes leading from the bath, shower, washing machine and sink should have a diameter of 50 mm;a sewage pipe leading from the toilet - 110 mm;
- sewers must be connected to each other so that the smaller diameter pipe inserted into the fitting or pipe of larger diameter, and not vice versa.
scheme of sewerage and water supply
If you have any doubt that you can easily clean the sewers through drains in the bathtub or sink, install the sewer pipe-tee fitting additional closing its upperopening a special stopper.Later, through it you'll be cleaned and the pipe.Once you close all pipe ducts, be sure to leave access to them.
pipes must be inserted into one another (or fitting) to the maximum possible depth.
to avoid tube became constant, attach them to the walls with special clamps, fixing, so each section of pipe.
