Can we just put a single p trap at the end of the main pipe. Just to simplify the cost and construction?
Any idea what can happen?


P-trap is available at 2" size only. Ang nilalagyan po ng P-trap ay floor drain, shower drain, bath tub.
lavatory and kitchen sink uses 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" P-trap. It seals the sewer gas coming from the main pipe and also catches solid particles para maprevent yun clogging ng branches at main pipe. Yun p-trap ng lavatory at kitchen pwede mo siya i-disassemble to remove the clog. P-trap 2" size has a threaded plug sa bottom that you can remove in case of clogging if you have an access. Pero yun mga p-trap ng floor drain sa ground level ng house wala ka access. To removed the clog we use wet and dry vaccum. I attached improvised 3/4" or 1" pvc pipe or flexible hose sa vacuum then yun ang ipapasok ko sa floor drain. Hihigupin lang ng vacuum yun mga solid particles sa p-trap.

Pag naglagay ka ng P-trap sa main pipe maiipon yun mga solid particles. I think yun "plumbing snake" na ginagamit na pang-alis ng bara hindi siya makakadaan sa p-trap. Then it will be your worse nightmare.

Dapat naglalagay rin ng clean-out sa end ng main pipe at branches para meron dadaanan yun "plumbing snake" in case of declogging.

For house plumbing system better hire a licensed master plumber or experienced plumber. I've seen many projects lalo na yun mga repair/renovation na mali yun kabit ng mga plumbing fittings, hindi naka-slope yun pipe, walang p-trap, walang vent line, meron leak sa floor drain. It incurs a big amount of money to repair.

Pag nagrepair ng plumbing (sewer) line ng ground floor sigurado ako magsinsil or jack hammer ng floor, concreting of floor, tile works etc. Pag sa second floor sigurado magbaklas ng ceiling, kabit ng ceiling and painting works.

Just wondering if in faucets kitchen or bathroom also have an OEM producer.
I have seen several brands of faucets and shower heads, it seems that there is an OEM.
What i know is in electronics this is very popular, does it also happen in plumbing systems?

What is the common practice about vents on the plumbing system here in the Philippines?
Do you also attach vents on the kitchen sink and lavatory?

Pag mahina ang water pressure sa isang area affected yun water system (cold and hot).
Kung bibili ka or meron available na water heater with built-in pump yun hot water lang ang pressurized then yun cold water mo hindi. So pag gamit mo ng shower hot hot water lang not warm.

Kaya pag mahina yun water pressure sa line naglalagay booster pump and water tank para maitama yun water pressure sa whole system. So hindi mo na kailangan ng built-in jet pump sa water heater.

Kung ayaw mo maglagay ng ventilation line gamit ka "Sovent Aerator fitting".

DIY water line. Used PPR pipes.
Medyo mahirap din pala installation ng PPR pipes lalo na sa tight spaces dahil dun sa welding machine.

Shower controller

Mali pa diskarte sa installation. Dapat pala gumamit na lang ako ng threaded male elbow connector sa inlet ng shower controller. Sa susunod na project na lang after 10 years :shifty:
