Once you flush the toilet or turn on your sink faucet — the water just goes away! However, there is a lot more to your home plumbing system.

Home Drainage

After you flush a toilet or turn on your faucet, the water from the fixture has it’s on drain line that ties into a larger main line, which takes your water away from your house. Waste water usually drains into a sewer system or septic tank.

Plumbing Traps

Plumbing traps are one of the most important parts of your home plumbing system.  They trap water inside, preventing sewer gases from coming back up into your home.


Vents allow water to pass out of the drains with ease. Every fixture in your home needs to be connected to proper ventilation that allows waste or water to flow smoothly through the drain pipes. Many houses are vented through the roof!
