Plumbing a New Home

Installing the plumbing system for a new home involves working with builders during each phase of construction. That’s why before jumping into plumbing a new home, it’s important to follow the building codes of your neighborhood and/or city. A local Vancouver, Camas, or Washougal plumber will ensure that your home is plumbed correctly and passes a city home inspection with flying colors.

 

Overview of New Home Plumbing

Plumbing a new home is an integral part of the construction process. The timeline for installing some plumbing features can depend on what the home builders are working on, as some plumbing tasks can only be completed during specific phases of construction.

Getting a new home plumbed correctly is critical to the integrity of the house. Making a mistake here and there can cost thousands of dollars to repair, potentially cause water damage, and become a big mess for homeowners, property managers or tenants. Here’s an overview of what to expect when plumbing a new home:

 

Main Water Supply

The first step for any plumber when installing the plumbing system for a new home is to get a connection to the municipal water supply. The main water line links the city’s water supply to homes so that occupants have running water. Using simple pipes, fittings and valves, a Vancouver plumber can connect to the main water line with relative ease.

 

Drain-Waste-Vent System

The drain-waste-system may not sound like much, but it’s arguably the most critical feature of your home’s internal plumbing system. A DWV system works exactly as it sounds, removing waste and sewage from the most-used fixtures of any living space: toilets, showers and sinks. In addition, the ventilation process in a DWV system ensures sewage gases are cleared from the home.

 

Bathroom and Kitchen

Once the water line connection is made and the DWV system installed, it’s time to head for the bathroom and kitchen. Bathrooms have two major systems: One that brings clean water in, and one that moves waste out. On the other hand, kitchens generally rely on one large sink that handles an array of waste materials. Unfortunately, this set-up makes clogged sinks the most common cause of plumbing problems in the kitchen. An effective way to avoid major clogs is to install a garbage disposal during this phase of the home building process.
