What would you like to do?
What you have is a ball check valve, and you could have a comboSanitary/Storm System, The ones I have seen use a squeeze typeinsert into the floor drain, and that nut you are …looking at isjust a clean-out plug to by-pass the check valve for draincleaning.(: You can try and drill it out and replace it with a new one, I havetwo new valves in my garage. However; what I would do is bust-upthat section of concrete and replace that section of pipe with allnew parts, also think about calling a licensed plumber likeA-General plumbing & sewer service company in NJ to remove thestorm sewer connections and pipe it separately to the outside ofthe house to avoid flooding when heavy rains occur.
If a toilet is installed in the basement does it need to be vented separately or can you just tap into the main drain?
Most Toilets in basements are generally already to go ,they are hook in to the main 3" line anyway which goes directly to the roof for ventilation .the toliet in the basement… is the last fixture before going to the subdivision in sewer line.this is how it is in Atlanta Ga...I am a builder here and i do many basement rooms..The trick is venting out the fart fan ,but there is a cure for that to
Can a basement floor drain be tapped into to run the drain from a nearby newly installed basement toilet into it?
If you just plan on putting the toilet on top of the floor drain the answer is no. The floor drain if it leads to a septic system or city sewer would have a trap in the line w…hich will not work with a toilet. Depending on the size of the pipe 3" minimum you could cut the floor and tie a toilet into the line. It would also have to be properly vented. I would consult a plumber on the job. Its also possible that the floor drain just goes to a dry well which could not be used. Even if it could not be used there are other ways to install a toilet below the septic or sewer line.
What is wrong if you are on a septic stystem and have installed a pit and ejector effluent pump in the basement with a vertical check valve and are suddenly getting a strong sewer smell sometimes?
Answer The pit needs a vent line "stink pipe" extended to outside the home. Then the "stink pipe" needs a Sweetfilter. http://www.Sweetfilter.com
Depends upon the plumbing code in your area.... A traditional ion-exchange water softener does need a "drain line". Typically 10-50 gallons of water are sent to the… drain during each regeneration . Depending upon the local plumbing codes this drain could be: - a floor drain - a deep-sink drain (wash basin) - plumed directly into the household sewer drain (typically this installation uses a device called an air-gap)
It is the drain for the Temperature and Pressure relief valve (T&P valve, or TPV). It's function is to release pressure from the water heater if the pressure or temperature of… the water exceeds preset limits. Do not cap off the pipe, or remove the T&P valve or alter it in any way. Doing so could cause serious injury or death! If you notice water dripping or running from the pipe, call a plumber to check it.
How far can the toilet be from the basement drain. The toilet will be installed on the main floor but is there a certain degree angle for the pipe to be from toilet to basement drain?
Maximum distance of the toilet to the drain is 6 metres (20 feet). The angle of drop is set by the branch at 112 1/2o, which equates to about 1/4" of drop per foot.
Yes, it is done all the time
Firstly check with the Water Authority/Local Authority that the drain is not a sewer shown on the map of sewers. If it is in fact a drain it should only serve one proper…ty, however. If it is no then it might be a private sewer that serves more than one property. If it only serves one property it is a drain and in this case and in the case of it being a private sewer it will need to be protected against damage from floor loads. I suggest you ask the advice of your Building Control Deapartment at your local Council as bot both protective measure and accessibility measures may be required.
You can get a back water valve. It is similar to a check vale/ the back water valve goes on your main sewer line out side of home. It is desined to stop black water form… coming into your home if main line stops up. Thay do make a device that can be installed into an exsisting drain it lets water through your drain but will not let water back up through you shower drain.
No Check valves are two-port valves, meaning they have two openings in the body, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave. There are various types of check valv…es used in a wide variety of application. And a ball check valve is one of types of check valves, it a check valve in which the closing member, the movable part to block the flow, is a spherical ball. Then a ball valve is a valve with a spherical disc, the part of the valve which controls the flow through it. The sphere has a hole, or port, through the middle so that when the port is in line with both ends of the valve, flow will occur. As you see, they are not the same.
You must lift the sewage up to the place where the sewer pipe leaves the home. Most homes on level sites connected to septic systems have sewer lines close to grade level beca…use these systems must be built shallow to perform. From the basement, sewage must be lifted up to the exit pipe usually inside the house. Plumbing drains in the basement (and this would apply to a single sink) are directed into a sump or plastic or concrete pit built into the floor of the basement inside a closet or near the outside wall. The sump is flush with the floor and has a sealed lid. In the sump is a grinder pump that grinds the sewage into a slurry and pumps it up to the sewer in a small diameter pipe where it combines with the other household sewage and flows by gravity into the municipal sewer or the septic system. Grinder stations can be installed by any plumber. They occasionally require maintenance, they make a little whirring noise a few minutes after you run water. Basement grinder stations are inferior to a gravity sewer. However many people are very happy with their basement grinders when there is no other alternative.
I have done this. The floor drain for a toilet is round making it difficult to cut, but a professional tiler can cut a curve or circle into a tile using a tile saw and grinder…. Mark the tiles circle or curve.Cut straight notches into the tile about a 1/4 inch apart to the part that doesn't go on the floor.Use a grinder with a diamond blade to smooth out the circle. This may take a few settings.Then set the tile.
That depends entirely on your house. Many basements never flood.
1, take down the flange on both sides of the protective cover, in the fully open state of ceramic valves to wash clean.2, before installation should according to the regulatio…ns of the signal (electric or gas) in the test (due to the transportation vibration, the influence is used performance), qualified rear when installed (connection with reference to electric actuators route map).3, ready to connect to pipe before, must wash and clean pipe in the remaining impurities (these material may damage the seat and the ball).4, during installation, please do not use the ceramic valve actuator part as a point of lifting hoisting, in order to avoid damage the actuators and accessories.5, this kind of ceramic valve should be installed in the pipeline level direction or vertical direction.6, installation near pipe shall have no overhanging or bear external phenomena, can use pipe support or support to eliminate the deviations from the pipe.7, and pipe connection, please use the torque regulation cross lock flange bolts
If the drain is adequate size, 3inch, then you could.
