Ball Cock And Tub Drain And Bibcock - The Spotless Life Three Necessities [2011-12-28]

 

Ball Cock:The ballcock, also known as the valve or fill valve, is the fixture that refills your toilet following a flush. After the water leaves the tank, the float valve, normally held in place by the water in the tank, lowers, which allows water to flow it. When the float valve reaches a set height, it cuts off the flow of water to the fill valve. Replacing a toilet valve or ballcock involves draining the toilet so you can reach the valve, removing it and replacing it with a new one.
Tub Drain:Every once in a while you find yourself having to clean the bath tub drain because the water will no longer go down. You certainly don't look forward to it, but you know that if you don't unclog it, your next shower might feel more like a wading pool.
Bibcock:A Bibcock (also called spigot and faucet in the U.S.) is a valve controlling release of liquids or gas. In the British Isles and most of the Commonwealth, the word is used for any everyday type of valve, particularly the fittings that control water supply to bathtubs and sinks. In the U.S., the term "Bibcock" is more often used for beer Bibcocks, cut-in connections, or wireBibcockping. "Spigot" or "faucet" are more often used to refer to water valves, although this sense of "Bibcock" is not uncommon, and the term "Bibcock water" is the standard name for water from the faucet.
