The Complexities Entailed with Bathroom Pipes

Throughout your lifetime you'll spend around 1 1/2 years on the commode.

Since you spend so much time in the bathroom, it is essential to have pipes that constantly function correctly. If you're planning on a DIY project that includes plumbing your bathroom, we highly suggest you reach out to a professional plumber.

Plumbing a washroom is a complicated work that should be entrusted to Portland professional plumbers. Keep reading for more information about why a plumbing professional should manage your plumbing task!

Plumbing a Bathroom is Tough

Plumbing your bathroom may seem like a basic project to you, especially if it is replacing a toilet. Nonetheless, that's not generally the case and can potentially lead to thousands of dollars in repair costs.

Below are several of the nuisances that come with bathroom plumbing:

Washroom Plumbing Design Drawing

Before you begin your job, you'll need a bathroom plumbing layout drawing.

This will ensure that each fixture is positioned where it should be. For the pipes of your remodel to be effective, your shower, bathtub, sink, and toilet will need to be strategically positioned.

Similar to gas lines, employing a specialist will ensure that your layout matches the locations of your pipes.

How to Do Plumbing for your Toilet

Plumbing your toilet can become a messy job; I mean it is indeed connected to your sewer line.

Since your toilet is connected to sewer lines, it's best to have a professional take care of the toilet plumbing. If there's an unexpected barrier with the toilet plumbing, a plumber is better equipped to deal with it. They can easily take care of a problem that you may not be able to stomach!

Restroom Pipes Fixtures

Some restroom plumbing fixtures can be extremely difficult and heavy to pick up.

Your sink, bathtub, and even toilet may be extreme for one person to try to lift and maneuver.

Luckily, plumbers are prepared and used to lifting these heavy fixtures. If you try to lift the plumbing components, not only do you take the chance of dropping them and breaking the fixture, but you may also injury yourself.

Height of Plumbing Fixtures

While there isn't one universal measurement when it pertains to plumbing components, there is a particular distance that must be kept.

A plumber will understand the standard height of plumbing fixtures to keep them properly spaced out. For example, the drain lines and water supply lines should be lined up with the fixtures they'll be used for.

If these are misaligned, you'll spend a number of hours attempting to fix it.

Plumbing Tools

Quite a few tools are essential for plumbing renovation in your restroom.

  • Some of them are:
  • Plumber's torch
  • Thread-sealing tape
  • Faucet key
  • Snake machine
  • Hand auger

Unless you do a lot of work at your house or if you are a plumber, you probably don't have these devices laying around. A professional will have all the tools needed to complete the job. Purchasing these tools would cost you more than hiring a professional; if you are planning to become a plumber then perhaps it makes sense to invest, if not, hire a plumber!

Michael D.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.

Katie D.

Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.
