Four Types of Plumbing and Piping Plans

Many people always think it too difficult to make plumbingandpipingplans.Butifyouhavetrulyunderstandfourtypesofplumbingandpipingsystemswelistedbelow,andwebelievethatyoucanquicklyandeasilymakeplumbingandpipingplanssoon.Ahome's plumbing system is a complex network of water supply pipes, drainpipes, vent pipes, and more. Because plumbing is complicated and one of the costliest systems to repair or install in a home, it pays to understand how the system works.

Plumbing and Piping Plan Example

Water Supply Plumbing and Piping System

Water plumbing and piping supply system delivers the water to showers, toilets, bathtubs, and appliances such as the water heater, washing machine, etc. The equipment for this delivery and distribution is essentially a system of water pipes, fittings, service valves, and faucets. These pipes and other fittings are commonly made of plastic, copper, or galvanized iron.

Drain-Waste-Vent Plumbing and Piping System

Drain-waste-vent (DWV) system is one of the most crucial plumbing and piping system. The job of the drain-waste part of the system is to carry waste water and sewage from sinks, bathtubs, showers, toilets, and water-using appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines and deliver those wastes to the septic tank or public sewer. The pipes of the DWV system are usually out of sight, hidden in the walls, beneath the floors, and in the attic.

Kitchen Plumbing and Piping System

Most kitchens have a fairly simple plumbing setup that includes hot and cold water supply lines to the faucets; a waste line for the sink (s); and, for kitchens with a gas range, a gas supply pipe. Many kitchens also have hookups for a dishwasher, disposer, ice maker, and/or instant hot water, but these are generally tied in to the sink's plumbing.

Bathroom Plumbing and Piping System

The bathroom plumbing and piping system must handle water delivery to and waste removal from all of these fixtures in an organized, efficient, leak-free manner. Two plumbing systems are needed to handle a bathroom's plumbing needs: water supply and drain-waste-vent.
