Considerations When Expanding Your Plumbing System

Here in Sewell, plumbing installation is a common feature offered by most contractors, often used as a part of a kitchen or bathroom remodeling. Expanding your existing plumbing system can solve a number of logistical problems as well as enhancing the space in question. But like any large project, you need to prepare things carefully before proceeding. It will help clarify you goals and save you a lot of heartache during the operation. Consult closely with a professional, who can advise you about the specifics of your situation. In the meantime, here are some basic considerations when expanding your plumbing system.

In the first place, make sure the piping can conveniently run from your existing plumbing system to whatever fixtures and outlets require them. That usually means being able to place them in a wall or similar unobtrusive location. In some cases, the pipes may need to be run through the floor or ceiling, which can be a bit more complicated than running them through the walls. Make sure you have the path marked out and all of the stages set before embarking. Otherwise, you may end up laying down floor tile a second time, or rerouting plumbing through a new set of walls because the first proved incompatible.

Along those lines, it’s important to consider the practical applications of whatever outlet you are expanding. For instance, if you are installing a new sink, make sure you plan for enough room to comfortably stand, as well as counter space to accommodate food and washed dishes. Similarly, make sure you plan for enough space when installing a new bath or shower, and that those kinds of expansions can work in conjunction with other nearby appliances (such as the toilet).
