High pressure water jets are good, but if you do not have the equipment, a large quantity of very hot water will do as well. This will melt the deposits and flush them down the pipe. I flush my home's kitchen and lavatory drains once a year with a large stewpot full of scalding hot water. This must be done with great care by someone strong enough to keep the pot under control. Wear a long sleeves and pants and a raincoat over to protect from splashes, use heavy mits and pour slowly. Take steps to make sure no children or pets can come near. Make sure your path is completely clear. Failure to take great care can result in a very bad burn. Done regularly, this maintenance can greatly reduce, or even eliminate, blocked waste pipes.

The most effective way to clear the drainage pipes and inspection chambers of these deposits is high pressure water jetting. The high-pressure water spray acts like a sharp knife and cuts the grease off the walls of the pipe. The water used in the process itself creates a high water flow which will flush the sediments down the line.

How do I get to the p-trap under the shower floor in my Jayco 2007

From underneath or through an adjoining storage compartment depending on how it was configured. You may be able to rejoin the pipe by putting a broom handle through the drainage pipe and using it like a lever while you repair the drain.

Soldering with water in the line

When soldering copper supply or drain pipe, condensation or seeping can be your worst enemy. Solder will not flow completely around the pipe if moisture is present, causing a water or sewage leak, respectively.
An old tip or trick is to separate the two pipes being soldered and stuffing half a piece of "white" bread into each pipe making sure to completely seal the entire pipes inside diameter and pushing those bread pieces down inside those pieces of pipe at least the same distance as the pipes outside diameter.
The bread will hold back any seeps or absorb any condensation long enough for the two pieces of pipe to be rejoined and soldered.
The "white" bread will do one of two things.....either flow down the drainage pipe with the other waste or it will break apart in tiny little pieces and flow right through all your water fixtures, with no trace of ever being there.

Happy Soldering!

How do I fix slow drain brand new plumbing?

The drain pipe may not have been installed correctly - the slope may be wrong, or the pipe may be too small, or you may have too much backpressure, or if you have a septic tank it may be full and need pumping, or any number of other possible problems. You might have another plumber come for an assessment and opinion - make it clear that you don't necessarily intend to hire them to do any WORK, you just want their opinion. Then they won't try to sell you all new plumbing to replace what you just bought...

What would be the minimum pipe size for drainage from floor trap taking flow from shower and from vanity bowl? What is the minimum pipe size for drainage shower? Ditto from vanity bowl?

That depends on the flow rate you want and your local building codes. When I rebuilt my bath, I had poor flow from both the sink and shower. My sink had 1 1/2 inch pipe and my bath had 2 inch. I replaced the entire sink run with 2 inch after the P trap and the shower I used 2 1/2 inch - problem solved!!

How to retrieve your lost jewelry from the sink drain.

You will need:
Pipe Wrench
Wiping cloths or large towel
Water resistant gloves (dishwashing gloves work fine)

Ok, now that we have the tools situated, look inside the cabinet directly under your sink.

If you have a double sink, you will see two drain tubes, one from each of the sink bottoms. A single sink will only have a single drain, in comparison.

If you have a dual bowl sink, determine if your drains both enter into a single "J" Pipe, or if there are two "J" Pipes before the "T" connection.

A single bowl sink, of course, will only have a single "J" Pipe. The sole purpose of this pipe is to catch "things" that go down the drain.

Now that we've determined where the lowest point of the J pipe is, visually inspect the J-section moving upward toward the drain. If the pipe is plastic, there may be a plastic nut that you can turn with your fingers. If it is metal, you will need the pipe wrench in most cases.

Lay the towel or wiping cloths around the area under the J-section, then loosen the pipe nut. Once the nut is loose, but still attached, move to the other side of the J. You will want your gloves here. Loosen and fully remove the second nut, which connects the J to another, upside down, J-section at the mid point. When the second nut is fully removed, the J-section will slide down off the drain pipe. You can then invert the removed section, and dump the water from it.

If the J-section has done it's job, your jewelry will fall out, and you can then retrieve and clean it!

To reinstall the J-pipe, simply slide it back onto the location it came from, then tighten the nuts. Run some water through the drain to test for leaks and correct as necessary.

The J-section looks like this:48caf44.jpg

This method can also be used to clear a clogged drain, remove debris and replace the pipe.

Blockage Maintenance

# Regularly remove any hairs that get trapped in the waste plug hole. # Keep small objects such as combs, medicine bottles and toilet rolls away from places where they could accidentally fall into the toilet. # Regularly flush the wash basin and bath or shower pipe work with hot water and a disinfectant to clear soap residue and prevent build up over time. # Don’t flush away large and disposable items such as sanitary towels, nappies or product wrapping as they can become caught in the drainage pipe. # Do not dispose of waste food scraps and cuttings down the kitchen sink. These are much better composted. If any items do fall into the sink pull the vegetable material out of the plug hole, do not try to poke through as you could impact the blockage making it harder to remove. # Never dispose of cooking fats down the drain system. As they hit cold water they will solidify. If there is absolutely no alternative you should dilute and emulsify the fats by mixing them with hot water and of detergent. Keep the water running for a minute after you have done this to keep a clear water flow. # For complete peace of mind, particularly if you are running a business you can request a regular drain surveys and get your drainage system checked regularly by a CCTV drain inspection service. This will give early warning of any potential blockages and also enables you to keep an eye on the structural condition of the drainage pipe work.
