How to Install Plumbing in a New Home

The installation of plumbing for a new home is more than just installing fixtures. First the water and drainage/venting system needs to be “roughed-in” at the proper spacings and proper sizings for adequate flow of water to the fixture and proper drainage to the septic/sewer system. Some installations aren’t required to be so precise, but others such as hand held showers, whirlpool tubs, pedestal lavatories and special sinks require very precise measurements in order to connect properly. There are things such as vent sizing and the distances from trap weir to vent that can and will make a difference in how you drainage system performs. If you’re not absolutely certain how to do this it is always best to have licensed professional make the installation for you. His experience can save you both time and money.
