In installing horizontal sewer pipe dapat naka slope ng 1 to 2 degree. Pag hindi naka slope Or pantay lang yun pipe hindi magflow yun solid at liquid. More than 2 degree slope maiiwan yun solid particle mauuna yun magflow yun liquid. Hindi rin ito maganda kse yun solid particle na naiiwan sa loob ng pipe maaring maging cause ng clogging.

Just like that.

How about the toilet bowl, do we also need to trap the shit out of the toilet bowl? Or the toilet bowl already has this p trap?


P-trap is needed on floor drain to seal the gas coming from the septic tank. For water closet (toilet bowl) no need to install a p-trap.


Bry this is the reason why yun mga bathrooms ng newly built houses na tinipid ay sobra baho kasi wala mga p-trap yun mga drains. Sabi ng contractor natuyuan lang daw at dapat buhusan ng bleach. Turn off talaga ang amoy, ka ganda ng mansion tapos amoy patay yung mga banyo.

Not an expert on home plumbing but I know a bit about sewers (I work for Manila Water). Bryant is correct about sloping a sewer pipe. After installing and before closing up, try rolling a ball (tennis ball for larger pipes or gold ball for smaller pipes; heck, a holen will do) by inserting it into the upper end and it should come out at the lower end.

Just out of curiosity.
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?

If the p-trap happens to get clogged, partially or totally, will be a big mess. By the time you figure out clogged, will really be a big mess. One clogged toilet is more than enough at any time.

The 2- (or 3-) inch orange P trap won't cost an arm and a leg. I think its less than 100 pesos.

The probability of clogging goes up with usage. If you use only 1 trap, you increase the probability of clogging. And since all drains are connected to that trap, you also increase the severity of the problem if it does clog.

Yes, you will save a few hundred pesos, but you'll wish you hadn't scrimped if Murphy strikes.

Hehe, by the time you realized it's clogged up, probably several feet already, and maybe solidified. Thinking of it should give you severe nightmares already.
