Plumbing installation in new construction is essential. Working with an experienced plumbing contractor is critical to ensuring the proper operation and durability of the plumbing system. To better understand the process, we will discuss the three stages of new construction installation.

Plumbing 101: The 3 Stages of New Construction Installation

Excavation and Rough-In

Laying out underground pipes and roughing in the plumbing system is the first stage of new construction installation. This stage includes trench excavation for water and sewer lines, laying and connecting the building’s main water supply and sewer lines, and installing underground drainage pipes to manage rainwater and stormwater.

Top Out

The top out is also called the above-ground rough-in phase, and it entails installing the plumbing system’s drains, water lines, and other connections within the building. This stage includes running hot and cold water supply lines through pipes. Our crews will also put in vent pipes to allow proper drainage and keep sewer gas from entering the building.

Trimming and Final Inspection

The final stage of the new construction installation entails connecting the plumbing system to the fixtures and appliances and conducting a thorough inspection. This stage includes installing faucets, showerheads, and other fixtures. We’ll connect appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines too. The entire plumbing system is tested to ensure proper operation and efficiency. We’ll conduct a final inspection to ensure that the installation complies with local building codes and regulations. After the final inspection, the plumbing system is considered complete and ready for use.
