Bathroom Plumbing And How It Works

Many of us don’t realize the value of our bathroom plumbing system until something goes wrong—then, it quickly becomes of paramount importance. Although your bathroom plumbing system is often unseen, it’s important to understand how this system works and what kind of problems can occur. With the right basic knowledge and with the help of Aspen Plumbing Services, you can preserve the systems that deliver water to and from your home. 

Let’s take a closer look at how bathroom plumbing works and the components and design principles that make up the average residential plumbing system.

The Water Supply System

The water supply system uses pressure to carry water throughout your home to your bathroom sink, toilet, and anywhere else you need it. This is basically a series of pipes, valves, fittings, and faucets. Separate pipes carry out cold or hot water as necessary.

Your home plumbing system relies on the natural properties of gravity and pressure. As water enters the pipes, it travels with sufficient pressure to move uphill, around pipe elbows, and so forth. The drainage system, on the other hand, depends on gravity to “flush” the wastewater out.

Cold Water and Your Water Heater

Cold water is always on standby and ready for use, but it goes through an extra step before you can get hot water. Cold water travels through a dedicated pipe to your gas or electric water heater, which then generates the hot water. Speaking of water heaters—your water heater is usually the second-biggest consumer of energy in your home (second only to the HVAC system). For both traditional and tankless water heaters, proper maintenance is crucial to conserve energy.

The Drain-Waste-Vent System

Rather than using pressure, drainage components rely on gravity. To encourage this process, drainage pipes follow a downward slope, which naturally guides waste to the sewage lines or septic tank. This waste then gets delivered to your home’s septic tank or public sewer system.

The venting system connects to the waste drainage piping and performs a critical role. As you’ve probably gathered, the plumbing supply and drainage systems must never mix—and the venting system prevents this from happening. Without it, the water supply would routinely get contaminated.   

To prevent any disastrous commingling, the “bridges” that exist between the drain and supply systems are vented. These vents emit air into the draining pipes, which prevents the mixing of sewer gases into the drains. In effect, this vented air causes the traps in the drains to stay shut, preventing contamination of the plumbing system. If these vents get clogged, whether it’s by critters making nests or by other types of damage, it can create serious problems. By hiring the experts at Aspen Plumbing Services you can ensure that your system will be installed correctly with all of the right components so you can enjoy your bathroom for years to come!

Bathroom Upgrades and Why They're Important

One of the most used rooms in any home is the bathroom. Due to this, it’s important to make sure your bathroom is functioning properly and is updated as needed. There are several key benefits to updating your bathroom and below we will outline a few reasons you may want to think about updating your bathroom with Aspen Plumbing Services.

1. Increase The Value of Your Home

Bathroom remodels significantly increase the value of your home, and you will likely sell it faster than a house that still needs an update. Bathroom renovations are some of the most popular home improvement strategies and in today’s thriving housing market, you can expect upwards of a 75% return on investment.

2. Do It For You

You might not be happy and satisfied with the current layout of your the feel of your bathroom, especially if you are planning to live in your home for more than five years. The key factor you should be considering is your happiness. Happiness is extremely valuable not only for yourself but for your whole family because you spend a lot of time in the bathroom.

3. Organize and Optimize

A bathroom makeover helps you take advantage of the space and fully optimize storage. Remember, this is the place where you spend a lot of the time after you wake up. If the bathroom is cluttered or messy, it can affect the outcome of your day. A high-quality bathroom remodel can help get you organized, especially with the help of Aspen Plumbing Services. 

4. Improved Efficiency

Remodeling allows you to upgrade your bathroom fixtures which will ensure that your home is energy efficient and saves you money in the long run. Remodeling will incorporate updated pipes, fixtures and more. Modern plumbing is highly efficient and can save you money over time. 

5. Safety First

Many homeowners might not realize that using an an outdated bathroom could actually be risky. Some of the obsolete fixtures, such as old bathtubs which might contain lead paint to rusty faucets that affect your water quality, updating your bathroom can eliminate safety risks and increase the safeness of your home.

6. Make It Yours

Many homes with older bathrooms may lack personality or your personal touch. By updating your bathroom with Aspen Plumbing Services, you can incorporate your own design and taste. More than ever, remodeling offers you the incredible opportunity to add some personality and style to your home.

Plumbing Tips From The Experts

Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical drain cleaners can be dangerous and we do not recommend their use in household drains for several reasons. The heat generated by the caustic and acidic cleaners can damage your pipes, especially older pipes, and they can become weakened and crack over time. Regular use can lead to expensive repairs down the line because damaged pipes are more susceptible to leaking or even bursting. Our expert plumbers in Jackson have the proper equipment and knowledge to assess your clog and get your pipes running smoothly quickly! Call us today at (517) 750-9913!

Some plumbing leaks can be hard to detect, especially if they are behind your walls or in the ceiling. While small leaks may not necessarily indicate a large issue, over time they can cause a lot of damage, far beyond just your plumbing by causing mold and damage to your drywall and subflooring. Below are just a few indications that you might have a plumbing leak:

  • Your water bills are increasing but your water usage is staying the same
  • You are seeing discoloration or staining on the walls or on your ceiling
  • Reduced water pressure unexpectedly
  • Strange sounds in your walls near where pipes run

If you’re experiencing any of these call the experts at Aspen Pluming Services today for a full plumbing inspection!

In Jackson Michigan and the surrounding areas our winters get cold and frozen pipes can wreak havoc on your plumbing and home. In colder temperatures (20 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) we recommend allowing your faucets to drip slightly, especially if they are within an exterior wall or if you expect to be away from home for a period of time. Running water through the pipe, even at a trickle, helps prevent them from freezing. You can also insulate the interior of the wall behind and around the pipes to help prevent the pipes from freezing. If you’re a homeowner in Jackson and your pipes freeze, call us 24/7 for emergency service.

Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom or laundry sink, it’s important to be mindful of what you put down the drain. Substances such as grease, flour, oils, caustic chemicals and other sticky substances should not go down your drain. Over time, they may cause a clog which will slow down your drains and could cause serious plumbing complications. Be sure to dispose of these liquids properly to ensure your drains and pipes are running smooth for years to come.

Over time, roots can enter your in-ground pipes either through a cracked pipe or broken pipe connection. The roots follow water the water and oxygen and they can cause extensive pipe damage and clogs. Our expert plumbers and drain cleaning and jetting experts at Aspen Plumbing Services have the knowledge and equipment to remove the roots and repair or replace the pipe. If you expect your pipes may have roots, call us today at (517) 750-9913.

Have you flushed the toilet just to come back later and find it still running? This is a common occurrence especially in homes with older toilets because over time the flapper loses its water-tight seal around the flush-valve opening allowing water to continue to flow into the toilet bowl from the tank. This can be very costly and cause your water meter or well-pump to run excessively. If your toilet looks to be in need of repair or replacement, call Aspen Plumbing Services today.
