Default Plumbing for new house

Hai guys
To build a house of my own was one of my greatest dreams. Now it is turning into a reality. I want my house to be beautifully constructed. Our plumbing works are going to get started soon. So I wanted to know what all steps are to noted before and at the time of plumbing.

In terms of asking for suggestions, the first "step" would be to describe your situation better.
  • How big is the house, and how many occupants will it have?
  • Where is it located?
  • Will you include some kind of solar equipment?
  • What type of heating/cooling will you use?
  • Will it have a gray water system?
  • Will it have a snow-melt driveway and walkway?
  • Do you want fire-protection sprinklers?
  • Will the lawn have a sprinkler system?
  • Is there a pool?
  • What kind of appliances do you foresee?
  • Will it have a shop or an advanced garage?
  • What kind of money are you working with?

Provide the plumber doing the work with rough in specs for the fixtures you have chosen. If you haven't yet, do it now.

We don't need to know what money you are working with, or if you want sprinklers or if you have a pool Ignore him.

there are 4 phases to plumbing a house
1st is the ground work, or rough in, this is the plumbing under the house.
2nd, is water and sewer installed from the meter or well to the house and the sewer from the city sewer or your septic system
3rd, is referred to s the top out, all plumbing is installed in the walls tubs / showers are installed
if you have a water heater in the attic it is installed,
4th is the trim, all fixtures are installed

Make sure you know the specs of your property. Installing a water system is top priorty.

Let us know how it goes!
