    • A.

      Suppression Valve

    • B.

      Return Valve

    • C.

      Backflow Valve

    • D.

      Pressure Valve

    Correct Answer
    C. Backflow Valve
    Explanation
    A backflow valve is a device used in a drainage system to prevent the reversal of flow. It allows the flow of water or other fluids in only one direction, preventing any backflow or back-contamination. This is important in preventing the mixing of clean water with potentially contaminated water, which could pose health risks. The backflow valve ensures that water flows in the desired direction, protecting the integrity and safety of the drainage system.

    The most preferred type of backflow valve because it has the characteristics of non-interferences in the movement of air inside the drainage system.

    • A.

      Interference Valve

    • B.

      Unbalanced Valve

    • C.

      Non-interference Valve

    • D.

      Balance Valve

    Correct Answer
    D. Balance Valve
    Explanation
    A balance valve is the most preferred type of backflow valve because it has the characteristics of non-interferences in the movement of air inside the drainage system. This means that it allows for smooth and uninterrupted flow of air, preventing any blockages or restrictions in the system. This ensures efficient and effective drainage, making it the ideal choice for backflow prevention.

    Not a preferred type of backflow valve, because of its poor performance.

    • A.

      Interference Valve

    • B.

      Unbalanced Valve

    • C.

      Non-interference Valve

    • D.

      Balance Valve

    Correct Answer
    B. Unbalanced Valve
    Explanation
    The unbalanced valve is not a preferred type of backflow valve because it has poor performance. This suggests that the unbalanced valve does not effectively prevent backflow, which is the undesired reversal of fluid flow in a piping system. Backflow can lead to contamination of water sources or damage to equipment. Therefore, it is important to use a backflow valve that has good performance and effectively prevents backflow.

    It is not preferred to discharge into the septic tank.

    • A.

      Combined Drain

    • B.

      Storm Drain

    • C.

      Industrial Drain

    • D.

      Sanitary Drain

    Correct Answer
    B. Storm Drain
    Explanation
    Discharging into the septic tank is not preferred because septic tanks are designed to handle wastewater from toilets, showers, and sinks. Storm drains, on the other hand, are specifically designed to collect and carry away rainwater and surface runoff. Discharging into a storm drain helps prevent flooding by quickly removing excess water from streets and urban areas. It also helps protect water bodies from pollution, as stormwater often carries pollutants such as oil, chemicals, and debris. Therefore, it is more appropriate to discharge into a storm drain rather than a septic tank.

    It is adopted when the street drainage is higher in elevation than the basement floor of the building.

    • A.

      Overhead Storm Drain

    • B.

      Outside Storm Drain

    • C.

      Splash Pan

    • D.

      Inside Storm Drain

    Correct Answer
    A. Overhead Storm Drain
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Overhead Storm Drain". This type of storm drain is adopted when the street drainage is higher in elevation than the basement floor of the building. It is designed to collect and divert rainwater or stormwater from the street or surrounding areas above ground level, preventing it from entering the basement or lower levels of the building. This type of storm drain is typically installed overhead, above the basement floor, to ensure proper drainage and prevent flooding.

    It collects water coming from the downspout leading the accumulated water away from the house at a relatively low rate of flow.

    • A.

      Overhead Storm Drain

    • B.

      Roof Leader

    • C.

      Splash Pan

    • D.

      Inside Storm Drain

    Correct Answer
    C. Splash Pan
    Explanation
    A splash pan is a device that collects water from a downspout and directs it away from the house at a slow rate. This helps to prevent water accumulation near the foundation of the house and potential damage to the structure. The other options, overhead storm drain, roof leader, and inside storm drain, do not accurately describe a device that collects water from a downspout and directs it away from the house.

    • C.

      Splash Pan

    • D.

      Inside Storm Drain

    Correct Answer
    D. Inside Storm Drain
    Explanation
    An inside storm drain is sometimes located under the basement floor or within the walls of buildings. This type of storm drain is designed to collect and channel rainwater or other runoff from inside the building, preventing flooding and water damage. It is typically connected to the outside storm drain system, allowing the water to be safely directed away from the building.

    • C.

      Splash Pan

    • D.

      Inside Storm Drain

    Correct Answer
    B. Outside Storm Drain
    Explanation
    An outside storm drain is installed outside the foundation wall of a building. This type of storm drain is designed to collect and divert rainwater away from the building's foundation, preventing water damage and flooding. By being located outside the foundation wall, it can efficiently capture and redirect water from the surrounding area, keeping the building and its surroundings dry and safe.

    Rate this question:

  • 46. 

    Storm Drain is installed provided a slope of NOT MORE THAN ______ PER METER RUN.

    • A.

      0.5 %

    • B.

      1 %

    • C.

      1.5 %

    • D.

      2 %

    Correct Answer
    D. 2 %
    Explanation
    Storm Drain is installed provided a slope of NOT MORE THAN 2% PER METER RUN. This means that the maximum slope allowed for the storm drain installation is 2% per meter. A slope of 2% means that for every meter of horizontal distance, the drain can drop 2 centimeters in elevation. This slope is necessary to ensure proper drainage and prevent water from pooling or stagnating in the drain. A steeper slope could cause water to flow too quickly, potentially causing erosion or damage to the drain system.

    Appropriate FITTINGS for a Storm Drain.

    • A.

      Wye, 1/8 bend, Long Radius

    • B.

      Tee, 1/8 bend, Long Radius

    • C.

      Wye, 1/4 bend, Long Radius

    • D.

      Wye, 1/8 bend, Short Radius

    Correct Answer
    A. Wye, 1/8 bend, Long Radius
    Explanation
    The appropriate fittings for a storm drain are a Wye and a 1/8 bend with a long radius. A Wye fitting is used to create a branch connection in a pipe system, allowing water to flow in two different directions. The 1/8 bend with a long radius is used to change the direction of the pipe gradually, minimizing the risk of clogs and blockages. This combination of fittings ensures efficient water flow and reduces the likelihood of drainage issues in a storm drain system.

    B. Roof Leader
    Explanation
    A roof leader is a term used to describe a water conductor or downspout that is commonly found on roofs. It is responsible for directing rainwater or melted snow from the roof to the ground, preventing water damage to the building's structure. This term is widely recognized and used in the construction industry.

    The House Drain should be sized correctly to have a flow of about ___ of the pipe diameter.

    • A.

      45%

    • B.

      50%

    • C.

      55%

    • D.

      60%

    Correct Answer
    B. 50%
    Explanation
    The House Drain should be sized correctly to have a flow of about 50% of the pipe diameter. This means that the diameter of the drain should be approximately twice the diameter of the pipe it is connected to. This allows for efficient flow of wastewater and prevents clogging or backflow issues. A drain that is too small may cause blockages and slow drainage, while a drain that is too large may not effectively carry away the wastewater. A 50% flow rate provides a good balance between capacity and efficiency.

    Correct Answer
    A. House Drain
    Explanation
    The correct answer is House Drain because it is also known as the collection line of a plumbing system. This suggests that the house drain is responsible for collecting and carrying waste water from various plumbing fixtures within a house, such as sinks, toilets, and showers, to the main sewer line or septic tank.
