Four Tips To Help You Improve The Plumbing When Remodeling Your Bathroom


If you plan on remodeling your bathroom, there are many improvements that can be done. This does not just include the repairs and visual improvements to the design. You can also do things to the mechanicals like the plumbing and lights in your bathroom. Here are some tips to help you improve the plumbing when remodeling your bathroom:

1. Adding Shutoff Valves To All Plumbing Lines

The plumbing in your bathroom may need repairs at some point. To do the repairs, shutoff valves can make working easier. You may want to have valves installed anywhere there is a water line, such as for your bath, shower, vanity and toilet. This can have you in case you have a plumbing emergency and need to shut the water off to one of these areas, but not all the water lines in your home.

2. Creating Access Panels For Plumbing Repairs And Maintenance

Sometimes, accessing the plumbing in your bathroom can be difficult. It can sometimes mean that holes need to be cut in walls or concrete needs to be hammered out of a foundation. When you remodel your bathroom, have access panels installed anywhere that there are plumbing features that may need to have repairs done.

3. Moving Vanity Plumbing To An Area That Can Help Save Space

The vanity is another area that you will want to consider. This is the floor-cabinet with the sink in it. If you want to have a smaller vanity installed, you will need to have the plumbing moved to an out of the way space. You can even do this with larger vanities to give you more space beneath the sink for storage. If you have problems with ventilation of your plumbing, a siphon can be installed in the drain instead of a conventional p-trap.

4. Installing Low-Flow Toilets And Plumbing Fixtures To Reduce Water Consumption

Another area where you may want to consider improvements is the faucets, toilets and other plumbing fixtures added to your bathroom. If you want to save energy and water, low-flow plumbing can be a great improvement for your bathroom remodeling project. You can do this for anything from the toilet to shower heads, faucets and bidets.

These are some tips to help you improve the plumbing when doing remodeling. If you want to save money, you can also reuse an old bathtub by having it refinished by a specialized contractor. You may even want to use a classic design that gives you access to install shutoff valves. To learn more, speak with a business like Tub Solutions Inc.
