A Quick Look at Plumbing Traps

Is one of your appliances pulling water from your toilet? If so, then this may have something to do with your plumbing traps and plumbing vents. Watch this video to learn more about this type of plumbing problem.

Every plumbing feature is equipped with a plumbing trap to prevent sewer gas from coming up, and plumbing vents help water drain smoothly from your appliances. When a vent is missing or blocked, this can cause water draining from one appliance to pull water from another due to a vacuum effect. A vent introduces air into the system to relieve negative pressure and prevent the water seals in plumbing traps from being affected.
