Everyone will eventually have to do something in their bath that involves bathroom plumbing. No matter if you are installing plumbing yourself or have to fix something that was already there, you need to know how all of it works in order to tackle the problem yourself without paying someone tons of money or letting the problem get completely out of hand. If a toilet is clogged up you don’t want to pay someone a lot of money to come in and do what you could have done for free.
Knowing what is going on with your bathroom plumbing is the only way to know how to fix and accessorize it if you want. If you are one of those people who are on a municipal water supply, there is a water line connecting the water to a meter and then to your home. You have one water line that enters your house and then splits into two with one side going to the hot water heater for when you need heated water for bathing, washing dishes, and other things, and the other line is a cold water line that goes to all the other things that use cold water.
When a residence has standard plumbing, a drainage waste valve is present along with the other lines. All these lines are what makes plumbing work. A septic system or drainage system is where the drainage valve runs. All the water that has been used and is dirty is emptied into these systems. If you are looking at a bathroom remodeling project or just adding new accessories, you want to keep these things in mind so you are able to attach the plumbing correctly so it works right.
