PVC drainage pipe and fittings are widely used in residential buildings such as kitchens, showers, toilets, sinks and laundry tanks etc. The following describes the use of one of the drainage pipes.
Step1. Prepare the drain fittings and pipe
PVC drainage fittings and pipe are the standard building materials in the construction industry, because it is easy to cut and install, so very popular in the market, the price is much cheaper than cast iron.
Step2. How to connect PVC tubing and fittings
The process of fitting PVC together makes it easier than older materials used in pipe fitting. The pipe and fittings are held together by a glue. The interaction of glue and PVC make PVC the firm together easily.
When measuring PVC pipe fittings, we must measure the inside and outside, to ensure that the pipe and pipe fittings are absolutely sealed.
Step4. Measuring and Cutting PVC pipe
When using a marker or instrument to cut and mark the PVC tube, we need to leave a clear mark. In order to be used for cutting PVC tubes. We find that any type of cutting tool can be used to cut the PVC pipe, which is one of the reasons why PVC is so popular.
Step5.Clean Off Burrs
After cutting the pipe, we need to remove the burrs and plastic sheets. To ensure that the PVC pipe and tube can be glued together after good.
Step6. Drilling Through Studs
If you can not install the pipe between studs, you will have to drill through them. Check with local building codes to determine the proper place to drill.
Step7. Cleaning and Gluing PVC
At the beginning of the installation process, please prepare the pipe and the pipe surface to glue, cleaning agent or primer used to do so, it can strengthen the role of the glue. Clean all the dirt around the pipe and pipe, make sure to clean up. After cleaning, apply the glue evenly to all surfaces that are being installed.
Step8. Installing pipe and fittings
When all the pipes are clean. As soon as the glue is combined, the slow tube is pushed into the fitting, keep pushing pieces together for about 30 the seconds.
This is the industry's standard practice, which will help the pipe and pipe more firmly.
Step9. Level the Fittings and Pipe
An important issue to consider when installing a drainage system is to ensure that the water flows in one direction, so we need to use a level gauge in the installation to ensure that the surface of the joint is vertical to the horizontal and to ensure that the pipe is horizontal. To prevent sewage backflow.
