Plumbing Installation | Plumbing Fort Worth
The installation of plumbing in Fort Worth is usually best left to a licensed plumber. If something should go wrong during installation, the warranty on the toilet or bathtub is typically voided when someone besides a certified plumber has provided the plumbing installation.
Drain installation can be tricky, especially over long distances. Get it wrong and wastewater can be draining improperly or even backing up into your home. Code affects drains as well, and includes things like required vent pipes and specifications that are essential for the proper function of your plumbing in Fort Worth.
If you have never installed a bathtub it is an installation you will regret not having used a plumber for. It is one of the most difficult plumbing items to install. The size, and weight of a bathtub makes it a difficult job, and getting the drain and the water lines hooked up can be a challenge in tight situations. A bathtub can be a real chore even getting into a bathroom as it may not fit through a door. This is a consideration to think of before you buy as it may require a portion of a wall to be removed to get the tub into the bathroom. A good plumber will recognize any potential problems and will inform you of them, as well as the potential solutions prior to providing any installation of plumbing in Fort Worth.
Sink installation is simpler as it’s usually much easier to get to all the necessary water and drain lines. One problem that may occur when you’ve dropped the sink into place is that the drain pipe may be too long or short and has to be adjusted. Measuring carefully beforehand prevent this issue. Plastic drains can be cut to fit, or you can replace the drain with a longer section. Proper connection of the pipes is essential to avoid a leaking drain and potential damage to the home. Many DIY homeowners think it is simply cut and glue but it isn’t that simple. Proper cutting and preparation of the pipe surface is essential to ensure a good bond that won’t leak. If you’re uncomfortable with drain installation our plumbers will be happy to assist you with your plumbing in Fort Worth.
Toilet installation is easier because there’s no drain pipe to connect. The toilet sits on top of the drain and doesn’t leak because of a watertight seal formed by a wax ring that sits between the toilet and the pipe. You push the aligned toilet down into the wax ring, tighten the bolts that come through the holes in the floor and attach the water line. The toilet is porcelain, so don’t over tighten or it will crack. If the toilet is loose and moves it will require more tightening but be careful not to over tighten. This is where a plumbers experience comes in handy.
