Have you noticed, after stepping out of the shower that your tub no longer drains the way it should be? When your tub is full of water, there is no doubt that you have a bathroom plumbing issue that needs immediate attention. While a slow draining tub or a clogged sink is a common plumbing issue, fixing it yourself isn't a good idea. Be sure to leave the problem to 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton.

What is a bathroom plumbing layout drawing

A bathroom plumbing layout refers to a technical drawing that gives you an overview of your piping system. It shows you all the relevant information you need to obtain on the plumbing system design including the location, fixture location, storage tank capacities, drain locations and routine and many others. A plumbing system has two major components:drainage and water supply. Your bathroom plumbing system gets water under pressure through your piping system going into your plumbing fixture.

Since drainage only works by gravity, it's important for drain pipes to slope downward. This is where vent pipes come into play. With the plumbing floor plan, you'll know the type and location of plumbing fixtures. The trap is the first component that is connected to your bathroom fixture. Every fixture has a trap. The U-shaped trap is found below the sink. In some cases, traps are included in the design of your fixture and they're not visible, especially traps located in a double sink or toilet.

The trap is responsible for catching and holding a small amount of water to give a seal that prevents gases coming from the sewage gas from entering your premises. It will travel from the trap sewage via the drainage pipes located in the branch lines to the vertical stack. Then the soil stack carries the waste from your toilet. Then the waste stack carries the rest of the waste from a sink, dishwasher, or washing machine. These drainage pipes should be connected to the plumbing system's vents.

These vents are exposed to the outside air and they enable built-up sewage gases to go out while the pressure in your plumbing system to retain the balance. Plumbing drawings are part of the set of construction drawings. They are submitted along with the construction drawings when applying for a building permit. When pricing a project, the drawings are also part of the package. That's why you should leave the plumbing installation job to professionals because all plumbing lines including connections, vents and drains should be installed according to the approved bathroom plumbing drawings.

How to do plumbing for a toilet


While it's not recommended to install the plumbing system for the toilet yourself, it is still ideal to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the installation process so you will know what to expect during the installation. There are four steps to installing your toilet's plumbing system:

Step #1: Carve out a hole for the pan outlet.

Step #2: Keep all screws for the WC pan secure.

Step #3: Connect all pan connectors, ensuring they're hidden.

Step #4: Connect the pipes.


Bathroom Plumbing Fixtures

A fixture refers to your bathroom's permanent feature. It's either wired in or plumbed. Fixtures can't be moved without undertaking a renovation project. If you need to upgrade your bathroom fixtures, contact us so we can help you install new and modern fixtures efficiently.


Faucets


This type of bathroom fixture is responsible for controlling the water flow from the tank such as a pipe or a drum. Faucets are now created with ergonomic construction. They are easy to use and comfortable. When choosing a faucet, be sure to take your needs into consideration, especially if you have kids. A faucet that's easy to grip will make it more convenient for your little ones to hold and turn it.


Showers


Showers are also not created equally so there are some considerations that you'll need to keep in mind. Since they are designed based on their specifications, it's necessary to talk to 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton so you'll know which type of showers will fit your needs. Some factors to keep in mind include the shower's control system, the spray head, the amount of water and the type of shower.


Toilet


There are many types of toilets to consider depending on your bathroom space. Since this fixture plays an important role in your daily comfort, it's necessary to know the different types of toilets. There are one-piece toilets, two-piece toilets, elongated toilets, round toilets and wall-hung toilets to consider.


Sinks


Sinks come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. If you want to maximise your bathroom space, it's imperative that you consider a custom-made bathroom. We at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton can accurately measure and evaluate your bathroom so you can find the best sink styles.

We had to have someone come out today due to a sink and toilet leak. Swayze McLauglin was our plumber and he did a great job explaining the problem and how we could get it fixed. He was great at explaining price as well as what he was doing. Swayze was friendly and professional while he was here as well as working in these trying times with COVID-19 he followed all procedures and was great. We will be using yall the next time we need someone. Thank you so much Swayze for all your help!
