    Water supply systems are under high pressure. The vent pipes remove or exhaust sewer gases and allow air to enter the system so that the wastewater flows freely. Pull out the clogging material with a piece of wire or small hand-turned cable. If this happens, prevent the rust from spreading by scouring the spots with the same kind of powder which manufacturers recommend for enameled, cast iron fixtures. The fat pipes in your house make up the DWV, carrying wastewater to a city sewer line or your private sewer treatment facility called a septic tank and field.

    Note: The discharge will be hot water that will need to be contained in a pan or bucket or allowed to drain to a floor drain. The piping is being subjected to the wear and tear of a multitude of shock waves. The normal temperature setting for a home water heater is between degrees F and degrees F, but degrees F is usually adequate and is also more economical. Consult your plumber if in doubt. To prolong the life and appearance of enameled cast iron sinks, clean the bowl immediately after use. An acid-resisting sink will safely resist lemon, orange, and other citrus fruit juices, tomato juice, mayonnaise, and other vinegar preparations if these are not permitted to remain more than a few hours.

    What About Plumbing Permits? When this is done, insert the new washer of the correct size and composition for hot or cold water. Since the plumbing in any private or public building is a part of the community water and sewage disposal system, it is vital that such installations should not be left to the discretion of irresponsible individuals. Because the easy operation of this valve in case of emergency is so important, it is advisable to place a few drops of oil around the valve handle once or twice a year.
