Understanding Your Coquitlam Plumbing Drain-Waste-Vent System

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.
