For the proper organization of the pipeline in a residential building, various structural elements are necessary. Sewer taps are one such part. They serve to change the angle of direction of the pipeline. This allows you to organize pipe wiring, which will provide not only comfort and ease of use of the bathroom or kitchen, but will also help preserve the design of the room.
Installation of modern sewer pipes is provided with the help of ready-made structural elements (flexible sewer connectors and bends). They allow you to organize a pipeline of any configuration without much effort. This is a significant plus, but the question arises - how to choose them correctly? First of all, you need to pay attention to the material from which they are made. Polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene are very popular in the plumbing market, polyethylene models are less common. Corrugated bends are worth mentioning separately.
Polypropylene bends can only be used with pipes made of the same material. Due to its properties, such pipes and bends can pass a stream of water at a speed of 4 to 7 m / s, and a smooth surface does not allow salts and impurities from the water to be deposited on the walls. Moreover, polypropylene has high chemical resistance, excellent wear resistance, strength and is not affected by solvents. Therefore, bends from this material are practically not subject to blockages, subject to installation technology, they are easily cleaned with detergents and are unpretentious in operation. The most popular are bends with internal hole sizes of 110 and 50 mm. Also, do not forget that when using bends in the construction of the sewer channel, it is necessary to avoid too strong bends, otherwise these places will be constantly clogged with garbage. The only thing that you should pay attention to is the need to install polypropylene bends, fittings and pipes requires the use of specialized equipment.
