Sewage must work properly</ H2>
During the repair (replacement) of pipes that divertwaste water necessary to provide a bias against the sanitary unit to the riser (at least 1.5% to 4% of polymers and for cast iron, depending on the roughness of the inner surface of the pipe materials). Plastic pipes have excellent characteristics. They have light weight, there is no exposure to electrochemical corrosion, resistant to acids, alkalis and salts. They are easy to work with. Cast iron pipes have a very high reliability, but they are now rarely used. The apartments sewer system (the toilet and other rooms) used pipes with diameters from 32 to 110 mm.
If you want to self-repair (assembly), it is necessary to move from the sewer riser toward the sanitary unit, bells, it should be installed upstream.
I want to note that to achieverequired thermal expansion between the end of the inlet pipe and the base of the socket, it is necessary to leave a gap of about 8-10 mm to comply with the safe operation of sewage.
Cutting and removal of conical bevel plastic pipes must be performed grinder. Chamfer must be processed sandpaper, there should be no burrs and irregularities.
The assembly and adjustment of sewer pipesbe performed without pre cuffs and rubber gaskets, as with the ring tube (even in the presence of lubricant) is very difficult to connect. Then in its place install all seals and drainage system is going to final. As a lubricant for rubber seals fit silicone, soapy water and glycerin. When assembling, observe that there is a coincidence of the axes of the pipe.
When turning the pipe at right angles mustput two plastic knee at 45 deg., instead of 90 degrees. It is advisable to use the oblique tees rather than rectangular. After assembly, sewage, it is necessary to securely fix all the pipes. For mounting (for example, to the riser), regular collars fit great. </ H2>

Consider repairing the installation of the mixer. To do this, you can apply two single threaded coupling or a special kit. Connectors should be aligned horizontally.

It is necessary to comply with the condition that the flexible hoses of the mixer to reach them threaded couplings.
With regard to repair the toilet tank, then to himnecessary to supply cold water at about 20 cm from the floor. Location analysis of water should be a little away from the edges, have free access, here it is necessary to install the crane and mount the filler hose.
Arranging conclusions cold and hot watersink, you need to install them compact and then close in a specially prepared site or nightstand. The lead ends are carried by a few centimeters above the sewer pipe at a distance of about 100 mm between them. It is necessary to carry out the fitting is attached to the washbasin siphon and collected mixer.
Today plumbing of the first objectnecessary, is converted into one of the interior elements. All the more appreciated the convenience and practicality, simple operation and maintenance. It should be considered during all repairs.</ H2>
