There are many reasons why a homeowner or business owner decides to install new plumbing in their house or commercial property. The most common reason is to complement new construction. Building a new home, office, or warehouse from the ground up requires extensive plumbing planning and expert implementation. It’s also important to upgrade your pipes if you are installing new plumbing appliances or building an addition to your property.
New build construction is a vital piece of the enormous puzzle of building a home. If you’re in the process of planning your new build or preparing for a future construction project, you’re probably wondering when new construction plumbing comes into play. Read on to learn more about what to expect from this portion of the new build process.
What is the Installation Process?
Every home or business that has plumbing in it, at one time, had construction plumbing take place in which all new plumbing systems were initially installed. So, what are some of the main components to a plumbing system that new construction plumbers must install when a structure is first being built? Let’s look at each of these facets of plumbing that work together to create a functioning plumbing system.
What is Installed?
Water supply pipes are one main component. These are pipes specifically designed to carry fresh potable water into the structure from an outside water source. Drain pipes are another critical component because these pipes carry away wastewater to an outside destination.
Vents are an important component of most plumbing systems because these pipes connect to the building’s drain pipes and create ventilation so the drain pipes can operate correctly.
After piping is placed, there needs to be an access point installed to acquire the water. Fixtures such as sinks, tubs, and drains need to be put in place.
New construction plumbers install new water heaters to the water supply pipe system so there is fresh hot water at fixtures such as sinks and showers.
Shut Off Valves
All toilets, sinks, and showers on your property are accompanied by a shut-off valve. This equipment helps gauge water pressure and stop emergencies like water leaks. Shut-off valves can also be turned off when people leave their property for a long period of time and won’t be using any water. In general, they are a vital component to your plumbing system, and therefore to any related construction concerns.
Phases of Installation
Underground Rough in Phase
Before the whole home’s plumbing system goes into place in a new construction project, the initial feed lines that connect the home to the rest of the utility system need installation. This roughing-in process ensures that the home or commercial property has water and gas supply pipes going to it and sewer service leading away from it.
Aboveground Rough in Phase
During the aboveground rough-in phase, a plumber:
- Cuts holes in the walls, ceiling, or floor to attach or hang pipes for connection to fixtures
- Installs the pipe for the building’s various supply and waste system
- Uses welding tools, soldering equipment to join pipe runs, or special chemicals for plastic pipes
- Installs all your gas lines
In the finishing phase, fixtures such as sinks, showers, toilets, and appliances such as dishwashers, water purification system, and water heater are installed. As well as installing the water heater, hooking up fireplaces, and other gas appliances.
How Much Does a New Plumbing System Cost?
Overall, the price of installing a plumbing system is dependent on four major factors the size of your property, the number of fixtures you need, the materials you use, and the labor involved.
The Importance of Good Plumbing
When you’re building from scratch or just adding to your existing property, you want to save money. While there are plenty of places where you can cut costs, your plumbing system should not be one of them. The plumbing system will be handling all your drinking, cooking, and bathing water as well as any wastewater. Skimping here can result in poor water pressure, sewage problems, and expensive leaks. By installing a good system during construction, you will avoid plumbing problems years down the road. An efficient modern plumbing system will also help you save money during the next few decades that your system should last.
