Plumbing in a new bathroom
One of the most daunting tasks in redesigning a bathroom is learning how to plumb it. Plumbing, as everyone probably knows, is not something that you learn in a book. In fact, it can be quite difficult and frustrating if you’re not sure what you’re doing. When I remodeled my bathroom, I knew that I wanted something contemporary, yet calming and relaxing. Here are some tips and tricks on how to plumb your bathroom.
The first step was to get a good inspection of the plumbing of the bathroom. I measured the drain and pipe distances between the wall and ceiling of the bathroom. From there, I was able to determine the areas that would require plumber’s help. The rest of the bathroom layout was planned out on paper, and every part of the room was marked on the sheet with the appropriate measurements and plumb points.
Once the measurements were finished, I installed a new drain in every drain hole and attached new drain lines. For the shower, I decided to use the same strategy for the waste pipe. It turned out that there were two toilets in the room, so I had to make three new drain holes and two new drain lines. This was much easier than I thought it would be, and the plumbers did a great job installing all of them.
The next step in remodeling the bathroom was laying down the tile. While I hadn’t done it previously when remodeling a bathroom, I was happy that I decided to do a complete update. The tiles that I purchased were cut as flat as possible and square. They also were very dark in color and seamless. Since they were cut flat, I didn’t have to worry about them sticking together or matching each other perfectly.
I decided to install the toilet and new toilet seat in the middle of the room. Once the toilet seat was in place, I decided to install the ceramic vanity cabinet that I had been dreamingt of. Next, I put in the cabinet for the vanity and finished off with a beautiful mirror. After knowing how to plumb in a new bathroom like this, I’m sure that every homeowner could do it the same way.
If you are someone who has never tackled a bathroom before, I suggest that you start with learning how to plumb in a new bathroom. It’s a simple process that only takes a few minutes. You’ll need to follow your old habits in the bathroom, but then adapt your measurements to match up with the new layout.
