Video Overview of Typical Plumbing System

Video Overview of Typical Plumbing System from Home Depot

Finn Plumbing Naperville brings you this video from Home Depot which provides a really nice overview of a typical residential plumbing system.

The video includes brief descriptions of:

  • Water Main
  • Water Shutoff Valve
  • Water Supply Lines
  • Water Heater
  • Hot and Cold Water Supply Lines
  • Water Pressure
  • Drain Pipes
  • Main Sewer Stack
  • Main Sewer Line
  • Venting Drain Pipes
  • Slope of Drain Pipes
  • Drain Pipe Cleanouts

The video does not provide any information on how to actually do plumbing repairs, but it does provide a nice walk through of all the main plumbing system components. One interesting item is that every home owner should know where their main water valve is located and have the tools necessary to shut it off if necessary. Some of these water main shutoff valves require a special tool which is often a wrench on a handle.

Thanks again to Home Depot for this brief walk through the secret life of your Naperville plumbing system!
