Plumbing to Consider Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

Before you start tearing out the tub, shower, sink, and countertops, you need to decide what sort of finished design you want with your newly remodeled bathroom. One of the most important aspects of remodeling or building a new bathroom is the plumbing. Key questions to ask include:

Where does the existing plumbing run? Do pipes run under the floor or inside the walls? Knowing where the water and drain lines run will help you avoid accidentally breaking them when you start tearing out existing fixtures.

Do you want to move the toilet, tub, shower, or sink? Relocating these features often requires modifying existing water lines and moving drain lines to the new locations. It is highly recommended to use a professional plumber for this part of your project.

Do you need to raise the floor to accommodate a new shower/tub, new drains, and/or water lines? Sometimes you may need to elevate the shower or tub to allow space underneath for the drain and water lines.

What type of plumbing is currently used? If you have an older home, you may want to have the entire bathroom re-plumbed with modern pipes. It would be a waste of your time and money to remodel a bathroom and leave old lead, polybutylene, or galvanized steel pipes that will eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

Taking the time to answer these questions and determine if you need to move, update, or replace your plumbing will benefit you in the long run. For assistance and to ensure your bathroom plumbing is installed correctly, please feel free to contact A-1 Sewer & Septic Service at 913-631-5201 today!
