Kitchen Sink Waste Pipe
Sink's are connected to a Home's Water Supply System -Kitchen and bathroom sinks are connected to a home’s water supply system, whichsupplies the faucets, and to a home’s drain-waste-vent (DWV) system for the drains.Both kitchen and bath sinks operate very similarly; the main difference is that kitchensinks are designed to be hooked up to more fixtures than a faucet, such as a waterfilter, a garbage disposal, and a dishwasher. Most bathroom sinks just have a faucetand a drain.
Kitchen Sink Waste Pipe In Surrey
A sink drains by way of several components. Kitchen sinks have a strainer fitted into a strainer body that’s inserted down through the sink hole and sealed to the sink witha bead of plumber’s putty. Beneath the sink, the strainer body connects to the drain’s tailpiece and the rest ofthe drain plumbing. A garbage disposal, if there is one, mounts directly to a special strainer body.Most bath sinks don’t have a strainer, but they do have a pop-up stopper so the sink can be easily filled with water. The pop-up stopper fits into a drain body that is connected just like a kitchen sink’s strainer body, as shown at right.

Underneath the sink, a rubber gasket, metal washer, and large locknut or retainer tightens the body to the sink. A straight tailpiece mounts to the strainer body with a threaded coupling. Slip-joint couplings connect the tailpiece, the main parts of a draintrap, and a short threaded nipple at a tee in the drain pipe. At the wall or the back of the cabinet, a trim piece called an escutcheon hides the connector and the nipple. The kitchen Sink waste pipe and waste water exit through the trap and down the vented drain pipe to the main stack.If you need help in any way, give us a call and we will ensure that the job is done quickly and efficiently.
