If you have a new construction project, how you set up the plumbing is probably one of your last concerns. You may be thinking that as long as the toilets flush, then everything is adequate. You are probably focused on the layout, design, and other features that sell buildings. This thought process can actually be a mistake. You should always include a plumber as part of your new construction team.

When you are building a commercial or residential building, plumbing is actually one of the most important things to establish. After the foundation and framing, you want to get plumbing constructed in an efficient design that is easily accessed and works with the property. You need an experienced plumber as part of your team to ensure that everything is laid and installed correctly.

The consequences of not hiring a new construction plumber

Unfortunately, millions of families put up with regularly clogged drains, high water bills, and other problems associated with plumbing. If you do not plan plumbing correctly, these are the issues that the property owners you sell to will deal with. They may also talk about bad plumbing with your future potential customers. While there are many things that can result in clogs and leaks, poor planning does not help.

Bad drainage

Bad drainage occurs when the pipes are too narrow or the venting is insufficient. Bad drainage catches debris that would ordinarily flush down the plumbing system and eventually results in clogs. Blockages will cause water to back-up into the toilet, bathtub, and even sinks.

Frequent leaks

Plumbing leaks are a twofold problem. First, leaks result in higher water bills because you use more water than needed to get the same result. Second, the leaked water has to go somewhere, which could result in mold that damages the interior of the property. Both of these problems can add up to thousands of dollars a year. Moreover, the only way to fix these plumbing issues is through extensive re-piping that could take weeks to repair.

Leaking toilets

Toilets that aren’t properly installed or sealed will leak around the base. Leaky toilets are a hygienic issue, but they can cause mold and other damage to the floor and subflooring. The last thing your customers will want to do is pay a contractor to rip up their floors to remove mold.

Low water pressure

One of the biggest complaints people may have regarding their plumbing is low water pressure. Low pressure toilets never flush all of the waste, which can leave the bathroom smelling terrible. Low pressure showers are never as satisfying as showers with sufficient water pressure. If you install pipes that are the incorrect size, your customers will deal with water pressure issues until they call a professional plumber themselves.
