plumbing-supplies


The plumbing-supplies needed for the finish plumbing are the fixtures, sinks, toilets, tubs etc. The toilet parts, shower, tub and sink parts are connected to each part too.


The tub is installed almost before the walls are erected since it is nearly impossible to maneuver a tub through halls and doorways once they are finished. That is especially true of deep jacuzzi tubs, or large garden or corner tubs.

Often times people will have the plumber install a toilet once running water is flowing in the house, so that workers will have a place to use "on the job." My feeling about that subject is one of "do I want to have to clean up after the hired help?" Well, that didn't sound too appealing to me. Sorry guys, but so many guys are not responsible in that department so I opted to not install a toilet till the very end when the sinks were installed.

When the finish plumber comes (after the cabinets are installed he will install the handles and water spouts, shower heads and handles, toilet flushing mechanisms and the like. As I said this is after cabinets are installed.


Sinks come as pedestals standing alone, or put into counter-tops.If the counters are rock, cement, or granite they can hang under the counter.

However, if counters are made of wood, with a lamenent top, then under the counter sinks would expose raw wood to water and this would not be good. In that case we use "drop in sinks".

In either case, the plumber has to connect all the plumbing pipes to the sinks, tubs, showers and toilets. All connections to refrigerator, water softener, water heater, and laundry facilities must be made ready to be connected to so that when you move into the new home everything is ready to go.

Hopefully the plumber will tighten all the connections down adequately so there are no leaks. There are horror stories told of plumbers who hired someone who failed to tighten everything down, and the new homeowner suffers with a "flood" in his/her new home.

I know of one new home that had to have all new carpet and even new tile, wood under the tile, cabinets and carpet pad replaced soon after they moved in. This was all due to a plumber's assistant not tightening and sealing the plumbing down.
