Things You Need to Prepare in Improving Your Drainage Systems
This is a must. If you do not label your pipes, you will end up misdiagnosing the issue. This will lead to unnecessary repairs that will cost you more in the long run. A label probably costs around $.10 to $.20. And can last for about a year before it starts to wear off. You can put the label on with a dry-erase marker. If you don’t want to buy the supplies to do this, then you can just ask your relatives or friends if they know of anyone that is moving out soon. They will most likely have a can of spray paint lying around that they got from some other DIY project they did. Labeling isn’t just for pipes either. You can label your sprinkler heads, water valves, and any other pipe associated with your system. Be sure to update your labels if there are any changes to the drainage system, like the addition or removal of a pipe.
5 Yards of 4-Inch PVC Tubing:
This is the pipe that will be used to connect the parts of your system. PVC comes in various sizes and thicknesses, depending on what you are needing to do. 4-inch is the one commonly used for drain pipes, however, you can use other sizes as well, such as 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch. PVC pipes also come with various materials, such as cpvc, which is a corrosion-resistant material that can be used for longer than the other types. If you want to go the cheapest route, then use the others. It is just that a bit more expensive.
PVC pipes are not the best material for reducing condensation when compared to other materials. That will be covered by the drain pipe you use. It is always recommended to use a drain pipe that has a layer of mesh around it. This will help to prevent moisture from collecting in your home. It can also reduce condensation.
