Morning all.Drain? Drainpipe?
I need a little help here. Where I was born, the house, there was a pipe
that went from the baht, through the wall out into the garden and when you
pulled the plug out of the bath tub the water ran out into the (thingie)
in the garden. What was the pipe called and what's the word for the water
running out and away) and what is the name of the (thingie) outside?
Or waste pipe, or outlet. The key is the diameter of the pipe.
Usually the same as on the kitchen sink.
I'd just call the used water, "bathwater" I think.
Or grey water or waste water.
drain is the place the water runs away into, whether it's the hole in the
bath or the hole outside.
Or water barrel, or tub, or cystern (though that's more usual for clean water).
There are a lot of more technical words for some
of these things, but I don't think that's what you're after really.
In pic 5, the black pipe is the for the bath overflow, and the white
pipe is the waste pipe. The U bend holds a small ammount of water
to prevent smelly air from the sewers getting into the bathroom.
