A house without plumbing and sanitation will never be comfortable. Improvement of these communications should be dealt with in the process of building design, or during reconstruction, if it is already built.
Autonomous sewage is a necessary thing in every private house. It is carried out in several stages, each of which requires its own materials and knowledge. Now we will not go into details, but consider one of its most important processes - the laying of sewage pipes with our own hands.
High loads affect the internal sewers, while the outer one is much stronger, therefore the requirements for tubular products for it are appropriate. Since the sewer pipes are laid in deep pits, the pressure of the earth on them cannot be ignored. Moreover, when laying such products under the roadway, it is necessary to choose them with the highest class of strength.
For external sewage, manufacturers make special pipes and paint them in red or Brown color. For internal communications, these products are painted in dark gray.
For external sewage to serve long and efficiently, you must use pipes:
Pig-iron sewer pipe
Today, homeowners prefer plastic pipes. And where the load is particularly high, it is recommended to use corrugated products. Most often, people choose products with a diameter of 110 mm. Remember that not only these materials will need to buy, but also shaped parts.
The process itself is conditionally divided into three parts:
Naturally, before laying the sewage system, it is necessary to prepare trenches of suitable size. Here are a few rules that can simplify the process itself:
Installation of Sewerage
After thoroughly cleaning the socket check the presence of the rubber ring, which serves as a seal. We do cleaning of the ends of pipes. Pre-worth checking the depth of the occurrence of tubulars in the socket, noting with a pencil on the smooth end.
A silicone grease or soap can be used to facilitate bonding. Now you can insert the pipe into the socket, after having been lubricated. The pipeline may be subject to linear deformations, so it is recommended to insert the pipe not to the end, but leave a gap in the centimeter. Here the marker left by a pencil will come to the rescue.
Dumping the trench
It is recommended to check the trench before falling asleep pipeline slope again. For about 10–15 first centimeters, the pit is filled exclusively with sand, which is carefully tamped along the edges of the pipes. Pressing sand over the pipe is strictly prohibited. Now it is possible to continue the instillation of the sewer pipeline with ordinary earth.
It is easy to lay pipes, but this process takes time, effort and accuracy. The pipeline will work efficiently and for a long time if all relevant standards are observed during its installation.
