Clog Removal

Some plumbing problems require the tools and know-how of a plumbing expert. Others simply require a determined homeowner and some basic equipment. Some of the most common of these plumbing issues are clogs.

The first way to clear a clogged drainpipe is to try using a plunger. Place the rubber cup over the sink or toilet drain to create a watertight seal. Then firmly push the plunger up and down. This will force water through the system and hopefully send the blockage on its way.

If the clog cannot be removed with a plunger, an auger may be needed. A closet auger has a relatively short flexible cable and a corkscrew tip. This will be sufficient for pulling out clogs in the first few feet of a drain system. If the clog is further back, you might need a cable auger. Also called a plumber’s snake, this tool has a long flexible cable that can extend far back into drain system. It will also have a cranking mechanism to extend and retract the cable.

Note: To avoid damaging pipes, an electric power auger is not is not recommended on lighter plumbing systems.

Pipe Repair

Pipes make up the backbone of your home’s plumbing structure. Without proper maintenance of pipes, your entire plumbing system could collapse.

The key to maintaining healthy pipes is catching problems early. A pinhole may seem minor, but it could quickly lead to a massive leak. These holes must be patched right away. Pinch a pipe repair clamp around the hole, and check surrounding parts for other signs of corrosion. Always ensure the area is clean and dry before applying a clamp.

For large holes or split pipes, you may need to cut the affected area and slice a new piece into the gap. Make sure you smooth any burrs around pipe edges with sandpaper after cutting. Then secure the replacement piece with ferrules. Take care to leave adequate overlap between the new piece and existing pipe.

Some types of pipe, such as braided-stainless-steel hoses, can be difficult to patch. Fortunately, these connections are often short, so the whole pipe is easily replaced.

And remember, always turn off the water supply before performing any pipe repairs. Otherwise, your small leak could turn into a massive flood.

  1. Answer the questions:

a) What are some different types of leaks that form in pipes?

b) Which repair methods are best for different types of leaks?

Drainage, Waste, and Vent Installation: Venting

Proper venting of every fixture is an essential part of any DWV system. There are several different kinds of vents. Plumbers must be familiar with each type when installing a DWV system.

First, an individual vent serves a single fixture trap and connects to other vents or open air. Two of these vents can connect together to form a branch vent, which is a vent for a horizontal branch. Individual drains are connected to a horizontal branch by a fixture branch.

Next, large bathroom areas in commercial buildings may use circuit vents, which can serve up to eight fixture traps. Relief vents must be installed with a circuit vent to circulate air between the drainage and venting system. Last, a loop vent is a special circuit vent located on the top floor of a building.

Two special kinds of venting systems usually require approval before installation. First, wet venting uses a single vent for more than one fixture. These are often used in household bathrooms. Second, island venting can be used for fixtures that are not next to a wall, such as some kitchen sinks.

Before a DWV system can be installed, piping must be properly sized. Sizing calculations use drainage fixture units, which measure the number of liters of water per second that flow from a fixture into a drainage system.

a) What are some segments of a drainage, waste, and vent system inside a building?

b) What are some different types of vents?

Fire-suppression systems

Safety-First Fire Solutions

Fire Suppression to Ensure Your Safety

Safety-First offers several options that guarantee an effective fire prevention system for your home or business. Complete fire-suppression systems protect property and employees. Smaller devices, such as smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, ensure safety at home.

If you want to install a fire sprinkler system, you need to be aware of your options. Which system is right to you?

Our wet pipe systems are our top seller. They are reliable and operate simply. A heat-sensitive element, such as a glass bulb or fusible alloy, triggers the system at an appropriate activation temperature.

If you’re in a cold environment, consider our dry pipe systems. They do not hold water inside pipes until the system is activated. These are appropriate when cold temperatures may cause water to freeze.

Offering the most complete protection, a deluge system provides a rapid application of water over a wide area. It can be triggered by a smoke and heat alarm system or by hand.

If you have hazardous materials in your business, a foam water sprinkler system is ideal. It emits a foam and water mixture from sprinklers. This mixture is effective in extinguishing flammable liquids and other high-challenge fires. They can operate according to any of the above methods.

  1. Answer the questions:

a) What are the parts of fire-suppression system?

b) Which methods of fire-suppression do you think is most effective?

Sink Installation

Dear Mr. Jensen,

Here is the estimate for the installation of a new kitchen and a new bathroom sink. Included in the estimate are the following:

  • The layout and assembly of both sinks. This includes permanently securing the kitchen sink with fastening clips.

  • Costs for compression coupling connections, lavatory supplies, trap adapters, and slip joints for both sinks. The kitchen sink will need a continuous waste assembly. It also includes other installation materials such as adhesive latex caulk.

  • Costs for taking away and disposal of all trash resulting from this project.

The estimate does not include the cost of purchasing the new sinks for the kitchen and bathroom. The cost of sinks depends on whether you choose pre-molded, stainless steel or cast-iron sinks. We can help you choose the type of sink that best fits your needs.

This estimate does not include the cost of any additional labor. If excess labor beyond installation is needed, it will be added to the estimate.

Estimated price: Kitchen Sink Installation $230.00

Septic Systems

Let us help you with your sewage needs!

Are you in need of your own on-site sewage facility? If you live outside the city, the answer is most likely “yes”. We’ve been in the septic system business for over twenty years. Here’s what we do:

  • Help you choose the right septic system for your needs.

  • Install your septic system so you can be sure it will work right.

How does a septic system work?

All the wastewater in your home flows a septic tank. The septic tank has two chambers. Wastewater flows into the first chamber. Here, solid waste settles on the bottom of the chamber to form sediment. Scum floats to the top of the chamber.

Between the scum layer and the sediment layer is effluent. The effluent is piped into the second chamber. More wastewater enters the first chamber. The effluent in the second chamber is pushed out. The effluent is deposited either in a leach pit or leach field. There it will percolate into the soil.

Septic tanks should be cleaned or “pumped out” every two or three years. There is a hatch on the septic tank for this purpose.

  1. Answer the questions:

a) What are some parts of a septic system?

b) Is having a septic system better or worse than being connected to a main sewer line? Why do you think so?

c) What grammatical phenomena can you analyze in the text?

d) Find in the text the sentences in the Present Simple. Read them and analyze the verbs.

e) Find the pronouns in the text and read, translate them.

  1. Mark the following statements as true (T) or false (F) having read the text “Septic Systems”

1 – The company installs septic systems.

2- Scum forms a sediment layer in a tank.

3- The effluent is absorbed into the ground.

4. Write the word that is similar in meaning to the underlined part

1The opening on the septic tank was stuck. _ _ t _ h

3 The sand sank to the bottom of the bucket. s _ _ _ l _ _

4 Each section of the tank serves a function. _ _ _ m _ _ r

5 The soil in the leach pit filtered the treated wastewater. _ _ r _ _ l _ _ _ d



5. Fill in the blanks with the correct words and phrases from the word bank

Word bank: septic system, effluent, leach field, sediment, septic tank, on-site sewage facility

1 The ____________ was pumped out last year.

Welding

Welding is a process when metal parts are joined together by the application of heat, pressure, or a combination of both. The processes of welding can be divided into two main groups:

  • pressure welding, when the weld is achieved by pressure and

  • heat welding, when the weld is achieved by heat. Heat welding is the most common welding process used today.

Heat welding is used instead of bolting and riveting in the construction of many types of structures, including bridges, buildings, and ships. It is also a basic process in the manufacture of machinery and in the motor and aircraft industries. It is necessary almost in all productions where metals are used.

The welding process depends greatly on the properties of the metals, the purpose of their application and available equipment. Welding processes are classified according to the sources of heat and pressure used.

The welding processes widely employed today include gas welding, arc welding, and resistance welding. Other joining processes are laser welding, and electron-beam welding.

Gas Welding

Gas welding is a non-pressure process using heat from a gas flame. The flame is applied directly to the metal edges to be joined and simultaneously to a filter metal in the form of wire or rod, called the welding rod, which is melted to the joint. Gas welding has the advantage of using equipment that is portable and does not require an electric power source. The surfaces to be welded and the welding rod are coated with flux, a fusible material that shields the material from air, which would result in a defective weld.

Arc Welding

Arc Welding is the most important welding process for joining steels. It requires a continuous supply of either direct or alternating electrical current. This current is used to create an electric arc, which generates enough heat to melt metal and create a weld.

Arc welding has several advantages over other methods. Arc welding is faster because the concentration of heat is high. Also, fluxes are not necessary in certain methods of arc welding. The most widely used arc-welding processes are shielded metal arc, gas-tungsten arc, gas-metal arc, and submerged arc.

Shielded Metal Arc

In shielded metal-arc welding, a metallic electrode, which conducts electricity, is coated with flux and connected to a source of electric current. The metal to be welded is connected to the other end of the same source of current. An electric arc is formed by touching the tip of the electrode to the metal and then drawing it away. The intense heat of the arc melts both parts to be welded and the point of the metal electrode, which supplies filler metal for the weld. This process is used mainly for welding steels.



  1. Answer the questions:

a) How can a process of welding be defined?

b) What are the two main groups of processes of welding?

c) How can we join metal parts together?

d) What is welding used for nowadays?

e) Where is welding necessary?

f) What do the welding processes of today include?

g) What are the principles of gas welding?

h) What kinds of welding can be used for joining steels?

i) What does arc welding require?

j) What is the difference between the arc welding and shield-metal welding?

3. Find the following words and word combinations in the text:

Сварка давлением, тепловая сварка, болтовое (клепаное) соединение, процесс сварки, зависеть от свойств металлов, имеющееся оборудование, сварочный электрод, плавкий материал, дефектный сварной шов, непрерывная подача электрического тока, источник электрического тока.

  1. Match the English words (1-10) with their Russian equivalents (A-J)

1heat welding A флюкс

2 riveting B плавкий

3 gas welding C лазерная сварка

4 arc welding D сварка нагреванием
