Plumbing Installation in a Remodel or Addition

Sooner or later we all need to call a plumber. A plumber is expensive and there’s no way around that. But, there are a variety of ways to get the most value out of your plumbing project.

A plumber’s answers to some basic questions will give you a sense of whether or not you could work comfortably with the plumber. An entirely different approach to saving money on plumbing is to reduce the need to call them at all. The most common plumbing calls have to do with a new kitchen/bath remodel or drains. Many homes have one or two problem drains and several that never need any attention at all. One common drain problem is the build up of grease. You can counteract this by doing things to reduce the grease build up. Experiment with the available products and you may find you can stay one step ahead of a clogged drain indefinitely. Some people have found success with just pouring boiling sudsy water down the drain periodically.

Hair is another common factor in many plumbing problems. In most cases, hair can be trapped in some sort of screen or drain cover. Talk to your plumber next time he’s there and ask about suggested ways to prevent the hair from getting in the drain. It’s much easier to gather hair off the screen periodically than it is to deal with a clogged pipe.

Another costly, but preventable, problem is frozen pipes. Make sure that all your pipes are in heated spaces. If any are not, make sure they are well insulated. Each fall, when the weather turns colder, disconnect and drain your garden hoses, turn-off the indoor cut-off valve located near the faucet, and open the outdoor faucet. If there is no cut-off valve, consider installing one. Any water left in pipes exposed to below-zero temperatures will freeze.

Bathroom remodels are the smartest way to invest your money. These rooms are where incoming guests, potential buyers, and your family spend a lot of time.
