A Quick History of
Process of Installing Plumbing in a New Home
Plumbing requires to be done by a licensed plumber or a person working under a licensed plumber in most places and the process is dependent on the plumbing requirements of the locality and the house layout of the individual but it is always done in the simple concept of water in and water out and involves three components namely the appliances, the drainage system and the water supply system.
With the following paragraphs giving more information about each installation, the timetable is normally set that; the installation of the sewer accommodation stubs comes first before the concrete foundation has been laid, rough-in plumbing and duct installation comes in next when the wiring is being done after the wall framing has been set up but the dry wall has not been installed, and you should finally put the main drainage in the floor, install the water pipes, fit in the sinks, toilet flanges and tubing.
Plumbing fixtures need to be installed before you have set the walls, which is mainly caused by how big they are such as how shower units and bath tabs are and should be covered using soft or hard materials like rugs, cardboard or old blankets to avoid damage while finishing on the walls, after which you should connect commodes and sinks.
The water supply system has pressurized water coming in in two lines where one supplies cold water and the other is directed to the water heater and each fixture and appliance is then connected to both hot and cold water while some homes have a water supply manifold system that has large panels that have both red and blue valves with each valve controlling one cold or hot water tube supplying water to the fixture and this makes it easy to end supply of water to a single appliance without shutting out supply to the entire house.
For drainage purposes, the main vent runs vertically from the ground floor to the roof top towards which the waste is connected and is directed downwards to the main sewer drain and leaves the home below the frost line where it is connected to the municipal’s sewer system or is directed to a personal septic tank.
There should also be ventilation, which prevent water locks that cause clogs, and this is done by installing a vent behind sinks. Drain traps are also essential to prevent gases from the drainage systems from getting back to the house by retaining some water in the neck of their u-shape and they are installed under sinks, showers and tubs.
