In plumbing, a vertical stack refers to a pipe or series of pipes that run vertically through a building, connecting multiple floors and carrying waste water and sewage to the main sewer line.

The vertical stack can also include vent pipes that help to prevent blockages and ensure proper flow of waste water. It is also referred to as a soil stack or waste stack.

This is in contrast to a horizontal drain, which runs horizontally through a building, connecting fixtures such as sinks and toilets to the main sewer line.

  • Connections: The drawing will show how the vertical stack is connected to other plumbing systems, such as the main sewer line, the horizontal drains and other fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and shower.
  • Floor plans: The vertical stack detail drawing may also include floor plans that show the location of the vertical stack in relation to the other plumbing fixtures and systems in the building.
  • Elevations: These drawings show the vertical stack from different angles and are useful in understanding how the stack is connected to other systems and fixtures in the building.
