Your home’s Vancouver Plumbing system can be designed as either a ‘complex system’ or a ‘simple system’. Experience has determined that a simply designed system is much more effective with regard to operation. As such, the most prevalent problem encountered in a home’s sewage system is trap failure. The trap of each fixture is designed to hold a constant quantity of water (replenished as wastewater passes through system). Forming a barrier to prevent noxious gases from wastewater entering your home. Should the seal be broken, this barrier is removed.

Back-flow occurs when wastewater (sewage, grey water, etc.) develops a reverse flow (opposite to design) and enters a potable (drinking) water source within the same system. Most often caused by a drop in the pressure of a structure’s water supply, creating a negative supply pressure. Ranging from being a nuisance to being potentially hazardous and even life-threatening, back-flow must be resolved as soon as it is detected. The expert professionals at Burnaby Plumbing have the resources available to diagnose and repair a back-flow problem.
Every modern plumbing design includes a Drain-Waste-Vent (DWV) system. The DWV system removes waste and grey-water from a structure while venting noxious gases to atmosphere. Waste produced at fixtures (toilets, sinks, showers, etc.) flows through a trap (curved section of pipe; usually an ‘S’ or ‘U’ shape). The trap must always contain water, which serves to trap gases, preventing return to the fixture and into the structure. Each trap is connected to the waste line to simultaneously remove gases via the vent pipe while connecting solid and liquid waste to the drain. The system ultimately removes all wastewater through the building drain into the sewage line. The sewage line carries wastewater to either a private septic system or public sewage treatment plant.
