Relocation of Drains, Water, and Gas Lines
Improving a kitchen’s function may involve the movement of appliances, sinks, drains, gas, and water lines. There are several reasons for the movement of plumbing. Relocation of appliances for improved function is a common reason. In addition, building code may require the installation of ventilation for plumbing when not present. The presence of outdated pipes may require repiping, galvanized pipe and polybutylene are two examples of outdated pipe materials that will require replacement.
Furthermore, replace gas lines and their fittings that are over ten years old to ensure your safety. Aging brass fittings can crack as they age, placing your family, and home at risk.
Updating a Kitchen
You can improve the kitchen’s function, and your home’s energy efficiency with the installation of a tankless water heater, a kitchen garbage disposal or a water filtration system. These installations require the use of licensed plumbers in Arlington. Select a plumber with experience, with formal training and licensure to ensure reliable plumbing and proper performance.
Relocation of Appliances
It is common to move appliances during a kitchen remodel to improve its function, and overall appearance. This may require the installation of electrical outlets, or moving gas lines, water supply lines, and drains.
Relocating a Water Heater
A kitchen remodel may involve moving a water heater. Moving or installing a water heater requires the services of licensed plumbers in Arlington, and is essential for your safety if it involves gas lines.
Only professionals with gas safety training, certification, and installation experience should work on gas lines. A plumber has the latest equipment to test for gas leaks. Your family’s safety depends upon a trained professional with the equipment, knowledge, and experience to provide proper installation of gas lines.
Relocating Sinks and Adding Water Filtration
Installing a water filtration system is often part of a kitchen remodel. A growing number of homeowner’s are concerned about clean, safe water for their family’s use. An under sink filtration system, or a whole house water filtration system adds value to your home and promotes better health by reducing risks from public water supply.
While municipal water systems chemically treat water for microorganisms, it does not remove sediment, solids, chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals like arsenic or lead, or other contaminates. Only water filtration can provide clean, pure water that is free of contaminants.
Kitchen remodels may involve moving the location of the sink, and/or the installation of an additional sink. This will require licensed plumbers in Arlington for relocation of water, and drain pipes.
