Things you may want to know about domestic sewage systems and main sewer lines

Modern life is hardly possible without such creature comforts as main sewer lines. Private homes and even commercial buildings are now equipped with sewage systems. Such systems are a part of any building construction. It is quite clear that the properly installed and maintained sewage system should not cause any problems and troubles to its owners while they are using it. This is especially true for the domestic sewage which is a relatively complex part of the sewer lines. Any domestic sewage includes such elements as the tap-off lines, risers, and outlets. The internal sewage pipes are essentially the noise reducing pipes with the diameters of 50 to 110 mm. All slopes and turns of the sewage must be maintained in accordance to building regulations. Only in this case, any possibility of clogging the sewage system is eliminated completely. However, if you have faced with sewage-related problems, it is strongly recommended to call for a professional help.

Main sewer lines are usually hidden. They are laid in all sorts of niches and ducts, in the construction of floors and walls. Sewage pipelines are usually laid at the initial stage of building construction. Therefore, it may be essential to learn everything about the sewage systems before the construction process begins. It is important to know about different types of sewage systems, as well as about the pros and cons of these types. Remember that only qualified engineers can install this or that type of the sewage system according to the rules. They will take into account all the nuances and features of your house when planning and installing the sewage system.

Using the gravity sewer is considered to be the most efficient solution for laying the main sewer lines. However, if the terrain is rather flat, the sewer pipes must be laid deep underground. The distance between the domestic sewage and the axis of railway must be at least 4 meters and no less than the depth of the trench. The minimum distance between the sewage and the curb of the road should be no less than 1.5 meters. The distance between the sewage and the low-pressure gas pipelines should be at least 1 meter. All these distance measurements are important for proper and safe operating of the sewer lines. That’s why all installation works must be carried out by the qualified engineers.

After the qualified engineers carry out all installation of the domestic sewage, the sewage must be tested for leaks. This testing is needed to save you from any worries about the reliability of the sewage system and the main sewer lines. The whole process of installation should be carried out under the strict technical supervision of the experts. Only in this case, you will know for sure that all standards and rules have been met. And as long as the qualified engineers are able to follow these regulations and rules, you can know for sure that your domestic sewage will not cause you any troubles. Besides, professional engineers and designers are always ready to advise you on the sewage systems and to find the best solution for you in this regard.
