Plumbing Remodel Design is Important
Remodel plumbing involves organizing the infrastructure of pipes, fixtures and drains so that water is readily supplied and waste is carried away efficiently. A good plumbing contractor will know the degree the pipes should tilt at, and how to get that PEX pipe to work with your existing system. Without the right design experience, your plumbing might fall flat–and you’ll end up remodeling again in a year or two, just to fix the first plumber’s mistakes!
The goal should also be for the design to support form as well as function. This means selecting the right faucets, sinks and other fixtures that are aesthetically pleasing and meet the design and architectural layout of the home in addition to supplying water to where it is needed. The plumbing layout should also take future servicing needs and possible upgrades into account. Pacific Plumbing & Drain uses top of the line technology to carefully plan your remodel from start to finish. We’ll work with you to find a design that fits your home, your lifestyle, and your budget.
Plumbing Repipes Can Rejuvenate Your Plumbing System
Part of a remodeling project could include swapping out the older existing pipes for ones made of modern materials. Older homes may have lead, galvanized steel, or polybutylene pipes. While the metal pipes can corrode and leach toxins into the water, the plastic polymer pipes can fail prematurely. Depending upon the exact requirements, copper pipe or flexible PEX is the recommended replacement option. They are both resistant to corrosion. Copper is the industry standard for fixed pipes, and PEX is ideal for offset connections. New pipes can give a homeowner peace-of-mind that everything is functioning as it should for years to come!
Buildings constructed before 1970 have plumbing systems with a higher potential for developing corrosion and leaks. It is generally recommended that property owners have an experienced residential plumber inspect the building and diagnose the health of the pipes.
Plumbers can offer their clients multiple options for repiping existing pipes or replacing only a damaged section of plumbing. Plumbers and owners can now choose between copper repipes, or PEX repipes to repair or upgrade their homes and businesses.
Every moment that you have a water main line leak it could cost you in loss of water pressure and bring about a disturbingly high water bill. Here at Pacific Plumbing & Drain, we are available to affordably fix the problem and restore the natural flow of water to your home.
When creating the design for your plumbing remodel or project, a plumbing contractor will recommend materials to use. This may include energy and resource efficient fixtures, like low-flow faucets, showers, and toilets, as well as tankless or solar water heaters.
Residential New Construction Plumbing
New homes and remodeling projects are very common. Homeowners redesign new blueprints and existing layouts that do not fit their lifestyle. This includes adding additional bathrooms and living space like family rooms with wet bars. It is important the extensive network of pipes and drains that will be hidden inside walls, floors and ceilings efficiently transport potable water and remove organic waste. The plan will also make sure that new fixtures connect with older pipes correctly or new pipes match older fixtures that are being reused. This ensures that a new home or remodeled one is well constructed and safe to use.
