New Construction Plumbing Tips

After a construction, renovation, and refurbishing a house, it is plumbing that takes the next step before fully completing a home.

In many communities, installing an entire plumbing system requires not just plumbing knowledge, but also a license to do so.

Installation Planning

This phase is the most crucial stage when installing a new plumbing system. The plans should include the system, the location, and the household fixtures that will be incorporated in the entire system.

This part also includes the timeframe upon which the start and end of the process should be determined.

The start of the installation usually commences when the accommodation stub is set. Here is when the home’s sewer line is placed and connected to the municipal sewerage system.

Rough-in

Here in this phase, the main drains are now installed and connected to the stack- a vertical drain pipe that allows water to exit freely.

Household Fixtures

Here is when the different household fixtures such as faucets, sinks, water heaters, and toilets are installed and mounted to the ground or the wall.

This may time quite a bit of time since you can’t install them all at once. However, with the right team of plumbers, you can easily get them done as well as guarantee the long run of the household fixtures.

Water Supply System

There are usually two split lines for water supply. One that supplies cold water and the other which is connected to the water heater. 

The water supply that provides water to the house is usually placed below the ground to avoid it from freezing during winter.

Drainage

The part of the system that allows water waste to exit the home freely and with ease. The stack ensures that the water waste flows directly to the sewer line.

Vent Pipes

Vent pipes allow air to enter the system, helping prevent water locks from developing in the drainpipes. This is essential in preventing clogs, as well.

Traps

A drain trap is a U-shaped plumbing fixture that prevents small amounts of water from backing up into the house. This is necessary to avoid odor from household fixtures such as sinks, showers, toilets, and bathtubs.
