Soil pipes permit the removal of waste or filthy water from baths, showers, bathrooms and sinks, while also allowing odours to be expelled over the structure via a vent, at a level at which the odour released won’t cause a nuisance. The pipe’s vents also allow air to the internal drainage system to give the capacity to ease the process of aerobic sewer digestion, preventing a siphoning effect from happening, and allowing free flow of water.
It is the pipe that carries waste water down to the sewage system. The bathrooms and the soil pipe by means of a connector will connect together, and waste water from the property’s sinks, bathrooms, showers and appliances will be joined by the waste pipes to the soil pipe by means of a boss connection. Soil pipe is sometimes called port pipe, as at roof level that a cowl will be set up to permit air flow into the system, preventing a vacuum and releasing any gasses and scents.
Approved document H: Requires that the foot of a soil and vent stack should have as large a radius as possible, rather than less than 200mm in the centre line. Ventilating pipes should complete at least 900mm over any opening within 3m and has to be completed with a wire cage or other perforated cover. Soil and vent pipes should keep sufficient downward slope in their span to keep liquids and solids flowing freely towards the drain. If a downward incline isn’t feasible, a collection pit using a’sewer ejector’ pump could be installed. It’s frequently joined to the exterior of a structure (even though it may be fitted internally) and connects the underground drainage system to a point just over the roof gutter.
