In Phoenix tub plumbing there are plenty of parts, large and small, that come together to make your bathtub work. Lots of things coming together and working to make sure that whenever you use your bathtub it goes smoothly. One of the more overlooked parts of your bathtub is the overflow pipe. An overflow pipe does basically what its name means, it drains overflow. If you want to take a bath in your tub, but you forget to turn off the water, it can help prevent or lessen the resulting water damage.

When you Phoenix tub plumbing is filled with water and the drain is plugged, the overflow pipe provides a direct route for the excess water to drain through to the sewers. This is mostly helpful when you've filled the tub too much and then get in and the water level rises above the overflow. Extra water drains without you needing to worry about it, meaning we usually forget about the process. If you depend on this pipe to keep your tub from overflowing when you leave the water running, however, you may be in for a nasty surprise.

Usually, the overflow pipe doesn't have a large enough hole to take in as much water as the faucet will pour out. It will drain some but won't completely stop the water level from rising, which means that if you leave the tub running, it will probably still overflow and cause serious preventable water damage. This damage can be expensive and a big pain, so don't forget to turn off the faucet, even if you're leaving the room for what you think will be just a minute. The overflow pipe will help mitigate the problem, but will not solve it completely. It can handle smaller overflow problems easily, but can not drain too much water all at once.
