The bad smell and its measure against a drainage pipe
At an ordinary home, there is a certain bad smell to some extent. It seems that there are many resulting from drainage of a toilet, a bath, or a kitchen. The cause can be severed by taking little cautions and measure.
The bad smell and its cause of a household effluent
If it visits the first home, in the direction of the house, there has often been a certain smell which was not noticed. If you have the pet, naturally the smell is worrisome. However, it may be made bad smell for a pet not to be.
I think that the main causes of a bad smell have many which leak from the drainage pipe of a toilet, a bath, a kitchen, or a washing machine. Since I ran the electrical machinery store for years, it sometimes often entered into each home. It stinks, just as it enters the door at most homes.
A drainage trap is mostly installed in the drainage pipe. Although the trap may be damaged, there are no parts of a trap and there is also often a bad smell which happens by the defect of handling.
About a drainage trap
A drainage trap is the equipment which was formed in the middle of drainage and which divides the interior-of-a-room and drainage side, and it prevents a bad smell and a noxious insect from going up from a drainage pipe. Although there is a thing of various forms, water certainly collects.
It is the structure which intercepts the air by the side of the interior of a room and drainage, and intercepts the smell and noxious insect of a sewer with collected water. It is always included in the drainage system in a certain form.
If water is not contained in this trap or it has damaged, a bad smell and an insect will invade from drainage pipe. Moreover, the toilet bowl etc. which are not introduced here have same structure, and intercept a smell.
The ordinary trap currently installed in the toilet or the bathroom
This photograph is the general exhaust port currently installed in the bath or the toilet. Since a bath pours water to the floor almost every day, the water of a trap does not go out, but since it does not necessarily clean up by pouring water in a toilet every day, the water of a trap may go out. It is sometimes necessary to supply water to a trap.
Structure of a general trap, and check repair
This figure shows the structure of the general trap currently installed in the exhaust port of a toilet or a bathroom. For this exhaust port, water has collected on the surroundings of a drainage pipe, and it is what carried out a form like a bowl, and has plugged up the entrance of the drainage pipe. Moreover, there is water in the surroundings of a bowl and an exhaust port. Thus, indoor air and the air in a drainage pipe are intercepted completely with water.
Air cannot be intercepted, when there is no water in a trap, or when there is no lid which prevents a smell. For this reason, the bad smell and insect in a drainage pipe may go up.
If a ventilation fan is turned in this state in order to eliminate a bad smell, the air in a drainage pipe will invade indoors, and also there will come to be a bad smell.
Since there is always water in this trap, there may be a bad smell with garbage or dirt. Please sometimes clean up and make water new.
The washroom, the toilet bowl, etc. are having same structure fundamentally. It is called by the name of P trap, U trap, and S trap.
Structure of the trap of a sink, and check repair
This figure shows the structure of the trap of a sink of a kitchen. A trap is under a garbage receptacle. Moreover, it has covered like a bowl. Water has collected on the surroundings of this bowl and an exhaust port.
Although there are those who take this bowl as since drainage is bad, now, the bad smell of a drainage pipe cannot be prevented. Let's install the bowl of a trap correctly. Let's exchange for a new thing that where whose size the bowl has not broken or does not suit.
Since an exhaust port and the garbage pail circumference also become dirty easily, let's clean finely.
There may be a bad smell from the crevice between the drainage pipe of a floor, and the exhaust hose inserted in it. It has covered simply in many cases and, now, cannot prevent a bad smell here.
Please close a terminal area with putty, a waterproof tape, etc. completely, and fix. Please be sure to check this, and to do it, if deficient since it is easy.
Let's stop double trap when drainage is bad
When drainage is especially bad, the trap may be installed doubly. Although the trap is installed in the drainage measure, if U trap is installed further, resistance of drainage increases and it may be hard to drain.
The trap measure is used for the drainage measure recently in many cases, and the trap may be attached also the drainage instrument side. Let's check, when drainage is bad.
