Home Improvements and Repairs : Tips on Bathroom Plumbing | Bishop Plumbing

Last updated 7 years ago

Three main components comprise your bathroom plumbing: the hot and cold water system, the drains and the vent systems.

In this video from, home repair specialist and plumbing remodeling contractor Tim Gipson shares a general overview of bathroom plumbing. Your drain lines run from your sink, shower and toilet down to the sewer lines, while your vent lines are connected through the ceiling to a roof vent. These two systems work together—without the vent, the draining water would create suction rather than draining down into the sewer. Find out how your sink trap reduces odors in this full clip.
