Common Components of New Construction Plumbing

Water Supply Pipes

Water supply pipes are one main component. These pipes are specifically designed to carry fresh, potable water into the structure from an outside water source, such as city water systems and private well systems.

Drainpipes

Another important component when it comes to plumbing are the drainpipes, which are in all construction plumbing projects. Drainpipes are larger than water supply pipes and carry away wastewater. These pipes connect to your typical fixtures, like sinks, showers, and toilets. Then they lead out of the structure to a city sewer system or a private septic system.

Vents

The vents in a home are another important component of plumbing systems. The vent pipes are connected to the home or building's drainpipes and create ventilation, by which the drainpipes can operate correctly. Vent pipes work by safely draining out the fluids through the connecting drainpipes.

Water Heater

The water heater is something that many remodeling and home improvement projects require. A water heater gets installed and attached to the water supply pipe system. This allows for an option for hot water at fixtures, like showers and sinks. Water heaters are also often set in a pan that is connected to a drain. This connection means that if there is a leak with the water heater, then the water will be caught in the pan and carried off via its connected drainpipe.

Individual Plumbing Fixtures

The last component are the individual plumbing fixtures to the new construction or remodeling project. These individual plumbing fixtures include faucets, baths, sinks, showers, and toilets. This is the last phase of the project. We will work on all of the previous aspects first when we remodel or renovate your home. And once that is done, we will finish up by installing these fixtures.

Testing

Once we complete the new construction or remodeling project and plumbing system, then we will put them through a series of tests to make sure everything is working properly. This aspect is commonly done by filling the pipes with air pressure and monitoring the air pressure for a period of time. What this does is check for leaks, because if there is a drop in the air pressure, then something is not right. Sometimes you can use water for new pipework, but oftentimes the air pressure testing works.
