Similarly, how does a toilet connected to the drain?
A toilet has two main parts—the tank and the bowl. The bowl holds water and connects to the drain for disposing of waste water and waste. When the tank's water rapidly drops down into the bowl (upon a flush), the pressure causes the bowl's waste water to go down the drain.
Beside above, can a toilet drain have bends? To achieve good water flow, try to install horizontal drain pipes so they have a minimum of 1/4 inch per foot slope. Sharp bends in piping also slow down water movement. They cause the moving water to loose energy. The 90 degree bends also are tough to pass through with drain cleaning equipment.
People also ask, do toilets and showers use the same drain?
Here's the longer answer: Your shower and toilet most likely share a drain line and a vent stack (this setup is called wet venting, more on that later). If either the line or the stack has a clog or blockage, air is forced either up or down your toilet, making the gurgling noise you're hearing.
Can a shower and toilet share a vent?
So yes the shower can also be vented by the wet vent along with the toilet. There is one major stipulation when wet venting multiple fixtures when a toilet is one of them: the toilet must be the last fixture connected to the wet vent.
