What do I need to keep in mind for a plumbing renovation?

Renovation jobs – big or small – are done with the same careful attention to detail and quality as any other plumbing job.

Bathroom renovations may involve rearranging plumbing fixtures such as the tub, shower, sink, vanity, and toilet to create more space, or simply replacing existing fixtures.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • If you have purchased an older home, it may contain Poly B piping.
  • Is your home on a slope? This is important to know for drainage.
  • Do you have any existing leaks in your old pipes?
  • Older toilets use more water than newer builds, so it might be worthwhile to upgrade to a more efficient unit even if yours isn’t broken. This will help save on your water bill.

What sort of things will a plumber help with when building a new custom-built home?

With our expertise, John G Plumbing can help make the process of a new custom-built home plumbing project smooth and hassle-free.

Prior to commencing work on any new construction plumbing project, with your vision in mind, we carefully examine your plans and specifications, assess the fixtures you have selected or assist you in finding your preferred options.

The process of plumbing new construction in a nutshell:

1) All connections for the supply and waste systems from the building to the public utilities are located, and the drains are connected to the main service. The main water line will also be installed.

2) All the drains, vent pipes, and water lines, as well as bathtubs (clawfoot tubs are installed in the finishing phase), showers, or shower bases that will be connected to the house, are installed. At this stage, holes will be cut in the wall, ceiling, or floor to attach or hang pipes for fixture connection, and the pipes for the building’s various supply and waste systems will also be installed. Gas lines will also need to be installed before the drywall is put up. All installations are tested for leaks before the walls are closed up.

3) All fixtures such as sinks, showers, and toilet appliances, as well as dishwashers, water purification systems, water heaters etc., along with gas appliances, are installed and tested for leaks.
