Diy Bathroom Vent
Keep out the Smell - DIY Bathroom Vent
DIY bathroom vent projects will keep your bathroom - and those of your friends - smelling a lot sweeter than they probably do at the moment. After all, a DIY bathroom vent is a pipe that will remove gases and liquids from pipe systems and from hot water cylinders and the pipes that are connected to them. But whilst you need to be able to identify this, most DIY bathroom vent systems should be done in collaboration with a qualified plumber.
When your bathroom was first installed, a qualified plumber should have ensured that all the vents and pipes, and everything else that was necessary, was installed according to local council or local authority regulations. An incorrectly installed plumbing system can be dangerous, which is why there is a lot that you aren't allowed to do yourself. This also means that you don't actually even need to know what a bathroom vent is. Just refer the problem to your plumber. Still, it isn't a bad idea to find out a bit of information for yourself.
Basically vents are ventilation pipes that lead to the fresh, open air through and above the roofs of buildings, including our houses and apartments. They are installed to get rid of smelly and sometimes dangerous gases that need to escape from these pipes.
Then there are a whole lot of stacks and additional pipes that work to create an effective ventilation system. There are numerous vents and what we call stacks in plumbing systems, mostly installed to get rid of gases. They are defined within various building rules and regulations, and plumbers know exactly how they should be installed and connected to the various pipes and drains.
When we (or plumbers) install pipes and lay drains we also always include openings and other places where pipes and drains may be opened and cleaned, or tested and inspected. One thing that you need to realise is that discharge pipes, and parts of discharge stacks that are above the level of the ground, and the bend of the pipe at the bottom of a discharge stack, are not drains. Vents also aren't drains.
If you're confused, don't worry too much, because there really isn't anything called a DIY bathroom vent!
