While the fixtures in your home will demand most of your attention so far as repairs are concerned, the vast majority of the plumbing system of which they are a part is made up of pipes. Pipes carry water into and out of the fixtures. They hang there, year after year, buried between the studs of your walls or suspended from the joists in your basement. Sometimes, if the weather is humid enough, the cold water line will perspire and drip condensation on the basement floor. Once in a while a pipe somewhere develops a loose hanger and squeaks when the faucets are shut off. But by and large it is possible to spend a lifetime in one house and never even be aware that there are any pipes at all around you.
The pipes are actually very special. They are engineered to last for years. They are expected to be unobtrusive, even though the water supply lines must be under a constant pressure that amounts to between 40 and 100 pounds per square inch. Multiply all the square inches in your home plumbing system and you are talking about thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of pounds of pres-sure. The DWV pipes are not required to sustain very much pressure, but the pipes used in the DWV must meet strict standards that permit them to withstand years of corrosion. Each task required of the pipes in any plumbing system must be fully met, so over the years several metals, and recently several types of plastic, have been agreed upon as the best, most durable ones to use. Each of these materials has a specific place in the plumbing sys-tem, and each has a place where it should not be used. Each kind of pipe also requires different techniques for cutting, fitting, and assembling into a single, watertight unit that a plumbing system must be.
Fittings are those small odd-shaped pieces of pipe used to link pipes together. There is a full range of fittings available for each type of pipe used in plumbing. Given the right fitting, you can go around corners, branch off in different directions, reduce the size of the pipe run and even make chemically safe connections between different kinds of pipe. There are two categories of fittings, standard and flush-walled (or drainage-type). Standard fittings are used for the water supply lines and in the venting portion of the DWV system. When the fitting is connected to a pipe, a shoulder is created by the thickness of the pipe inserted into the fitting. The shoulders do not disturb clean water flowing through the pipes, but they are large enough to trap waste in a drainage pipe. Consequently flush-walled fittings are used in the drain-waste portion of the DWV system, because they provide smooth, unobstructed flow. Standard fittings produce a ridge inside their connection that will trap waste and cause clogging (left), so all DWV connections are made with pipe and fittings designed to produce a flush wall at their connections. Fittings are so numerous and varied in design that the best way to find the one you need for any given situation is go to your local plumbing supply store and describe what you want to do. The chances are the store will have exactly the kind of fitting you need and the salesperson will be delighted to sell it to you.
