There are many moving parts that come into play when building a home from the ground up. You’ll need to pick out cabinet colors, door styles, and faucet types -- that’s the fun stuff. What’s overlooked is navigating building permits and figuring out how to set up running water. This is where new construction plumbing comes into play. You might strictly associate plumbing with issues with existing piping. But who do you think installs these components in the first place?
New build construction is one vital piece in the enormous puzzle of building a home. If you’re in the process of planning your new build or you’re preparing for a future construction project, you’re probably wondering when new construction plumbing comes into play. Read on to learn more about what to expect from this portion of the new build process.
Before you start plumbing for the construction project, it's a good idea to anticipate all of the elements that will need to be put in place. Each of these aspects of plumbing are essential in the development and operation of a functional plumbing system.
Pipes help to move water in and out of a home or building. The water is drawn in from the water supply line at 50 – 60 psi. This happens with the help of gravity, which also pushes the used water out into a septic tank or sanitary sewer system. Properly installed pipes can last up to 40 years with proper maintenance. In order for the pipes to work, they must be connected correctly and hooked up to the main water line.
If you're using a well, you'll need to install pipes to carry the water back to the house. Otherwise, you'll have to go out in the cold every time you want water!
Once the pipes are installed, it's time to install the fixtures. This includes sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, and anything else that needs water. Again, these must be properly connected to the water lines in order for them to work. This occurs before the foundations of a new building are constructed. These fixtures are covered with plastic or tarps once they're in place to avoid dust and paint splatter from getting on them.
A septic tank is a small, on-site sewage facility that separates liquid waste from solid waste. Anaerobic microorganisms help break the materials down before it's sent through a sewage line to an actual sewage facility. The septic tank is housed in an underground chamber, and it should be 10 to 25 feet away from your home
Summers Plumbing can help you with every step of your plumbing project, from the beginning to the end. We work with many general contractors and contractors of all types. Location is not an issue as our team is large enough to handle all new construction plumbing jobs in Athens, Watkinsville and all of North Georgia.
This is the portion of the project when work takes place below ground. Before the foundation is poured, pipes are dug in sewage and water lines, which is known as "undergrounding."
During the Top Out Phase, we travel back to complete the project after the foundation has been laid and framing has been finished. We connect the drain lines, hot and cold water lines for faucets, showers, baths, etc., as well as stubbing out of the walls. Shower pans and tubs will also be installed at this time
The final phase of creating a house is referred to as the Trim Phase. Sinks, faucets and toilets are put in place.
