Over the past period of time, I have encountered several recent checks by ventson, a liar.
They are usually black like abs drains, but they can also be Chrome, about 4 inch long and closed on top. . .
In a recent check, I came across several scammers vents.
They are usually black like abs drains, but they can also be Chrome, about 4 inch long, closed at the top, with air slots at the bottom, the same diameter as the pipes they connect.
I usually find them under the kitchen sink or in the laundry area in the basement.
A lot of the time, I will find them in the bathroom of the master bedroom, the new kitchen island, any place where someone may add pipes when decorating.
In a commercial inspection, I found a chromium model in a building north of ofOrillia, and a few days later I found one of the black models installed not far from Greenhurst.
This cheap vent is illegal in residential and commercial use and can be very dangerous.
In the ventilation unit itself, CSA is not approved for residential or commercial applications.
They usually sell at the home goods store for $7 to $12.
The packaging is very clear and is only for recreational vehicles and mobile homes.
They should be used in trailers and camping cars.
The better unit is called the pumping vents in the pipe industry, there are some pumping vents on the market, ranging from $30 to $ f50, approved by CSA and approved for use under the pipe specifications in limited cases.
Usually, any drawer has never been approved in the new building, only in the decoration work with the approval of the plumbingspecs, in the decoration work, it is not possible to be in the middle of a large area through adjacent walls like the kitchen island.
Draw the vent, which usually refers to the orcheater vent, which is usually installed by the homeowner, in which case the wall or ceiling must be broken to run the separatevent pipe to the main stack, or need to install another stack, like on the other side from the original house.
This is an economic problem and a very bad choice. These 7 -
When they do, the $12 ventilation fails, which may only make the building stink, but it may also be worse;
This may be the cause of an explosion or fire, or even the loss of life.
Simply put, the drawer works with the spring and the spring keeps the flap closed under normal circumstances.
When the flow of water passes through the short pipe of the installed vent, the vent opens the flap and allows the water to continue flowing, because the pressure on both sides of it is equal, and gravity pushes the water down the pipe.
When the water stops flowing out, the suction stops, and the spring forces flapclosed to stop the sewer gas returning from the fixture to the home.
Ordinary pipes also make the pressure equal, allowing gravity to push the water through the pipe opening so that the water flows out of the fixture.
The air pipe then allows the sewer gas to flow out of the air pipe and into the open air above the roof.
Pay attention to the difference between the two.
One is open to air, and the other is a gas filling pipe in the sewer that cannot escape at all.
When the spring orflap gasket fails on the drawer, the gas in the sewer enters the home and stinks.
But it could be worse.
Sewer gas kills many people every year, not just sewer workers.
Since several workers were killed in just one location, the worker at the togtohydro was sent to the gas tester, which is mandatory for any worker entering a lower-grade vault, test sewer gas before entering.
Sewer gas is on fire.
A combination of smells of methane-based gases.
It is produced by rotten organic matter, domestic waste and industrial waste, which are usually present in sewage and septic tank systems.
When these dangerous gases are sucked in, the victim is suffocated to death.
They are also very flammable.
But a scent may not be acceptable as a by-product.
The product of the sewer gas can also be carbon monoxide, which has no smell, is colorless and equally fatal.
If the pipe with the cheater vent has a direct connection to the sewer or septic system, when it fails, the fixture can discharge the gas through the fixture trap or the faulty vent.
If that fixture is a bathroom between several bedrooms, it can cause nausea and eventually death for the person sleeping.
If the device is in the basement near the stove, or near any open fire device such as the living room fire place, the leaking gas may cause a fire.
If the gas has a chance to pile up before the stove or fireplace opens automatically. . Boom!
When I look at a home, cottage or commercial building, I am paying attention to improper installation of these types.
They usually say they are not skilled or understand the repair or renovation of the homeowner's handyman type.
This always keeps me on my guard when checking the rest of the building.
My client is also worth it.
