What is a riser?

In the plumbing field, Riser

It is a type of vertical or horizontal pipe or path that is used for sewage, water and gas transmission facilities vertically inside the building. The riser is actually like a vertical column that goes out from the different floors of the building and thus allows the distribution of sewage, water and gas in the building.

The uses of risers in the building are:

  1. Sewage and water transfer: Risers are used to transfer sewage and water in the building. This vertical pipe goes out from each floor and directs the sewage and water vertically to the sewer network or the external water network of the building.

  2. Gas transmission: Risers are also used for gas transmission in the building. This pipe goes out vertically from each floor of the building and directs the gas to the outside of the building.

  3. Other cases: Riser is also used in some other cases. For example, in some air conditioning systems, risers are used to transport hot or cold air vertically inside the building.

According to the needs of the building and its type of use, the size, material and type of riser is different. In any case, the riser is known as a very important tool in the sewage network, water network and gas network of the building, and its use is considered essential for better transfer of sewage, water and gas. In the design of the building, attention should be paid to the type, diameter, size and number of required risers in order to design a suitable sewage, water and gas network for the building.
