Planning a Plumbing Remodel?
Expert advice on planning a plumbing remodel, including diagrams on where to place toilets, sinks, and other fixtures, and tips on routing supply and drainpipes
When planning any plumbing addition, you must first consider code restrictions; the limitations of your system’s layout; and, of course, your own abilities. Although it’s usually straightforward to route supply lines to a new location, tying into drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipes is a different story.
The simplest and most cost-efficient way to add a new fixture or group of fixtures is to connect them to the existing main soil stack, either directly or through a branch drain. A common strategy is to install them above or below existing fixtures on the stack, piggyback style (as shown at right), but check codes carefully for restrictions.
Learn How To Save Remodeling Costs
Saving dollars on your plumbing project is always important. This article from The Spruce has some valuable information.
How To Save on Plumbing Remodel Costs
Plumbing remodels are expensive. Plumbers are professionals – like electricians – who attend trade school, become apprentices for years and submit to state and other local licensing requirements.
But that does not mean that remodel plumbing is a one-price-fits-all project. Smart homeowners employ methods that help them pare down their plumbing contractor bill.
Call a Plumbing Contractor, Not an Emergency Plumber
Plumbing contractors are less expensive than emergency plumbers for remodel work.
Calling an emergency plumber for an upcoming, known remodel project is like going to the ER for a hernia surgery that you have been planning for months.
Even if someone is on staff who can perform the surgery, you are still spending big bucks because you are calling upon expensive emergency personnel for a non-emergency procedure.
The guys at The Spruce have it right. Don’t bother calling the emergency plumber for your remodel project. You need a full service plumbing contractor with the experience you need for a beautiful home remodel.
