You don’t have to know every single detail of your home to be a responsible homeowner. However, it certainly doesn’t hurt to become more familiar with your home’s systems. Take your plumbing system, for example; learning the basics of plumbing can help you identify problems and make repairs easier for your Libertyville plumber.

This video offers a clear look at how bathroom plumbing, drain, and vent systems work. It shows typical bathroom plumbing before the drywall is put in, so you can see what goes where. The drains allow waste water to exit the home quickly, and the venting prevents sewer gases from escaping into the house. Drains go down into the foundation of the home and out to the sewer, while the vents extend upward and through the roof.
