For those who are looking for a more general insight into bathroom installations more specifically, plumbing for a new bathroom we have compiled together this quick guide.
Step 1: Clear out old bathroom
Before the new bathroom installation can begin, the existing bathroom will need to be pulled out completely which will include the tiles. The clearing out stage will also include the removal of lead and old pipework in addition to the old bathroom fittings. A quick reminder to place down quality dust sheets to ensure the floor outside the bathroom is protected.
Step 2: Placement of bathroom fittings and fixtures
The next step will be to work out where in your new bathroom you want the main bathroom fittings to go. This will include things such as the bathtub or shower, the toilet and the sink. It is important to understand their location, as you will need to determine where to run the plumbing lines.

Step 4: Planning Plumbing Pipe Routes
This is considered to be one of the more complex stages of bathroom installation. There are two main things to remember. Firstly, that the high-pressure pipes are responsible for bringing water into the home and secondly, the PVC waste lines that are used carry water out. Homes nowadays will have shut off valves to easily turn off the water supply and they will also help to remove air from the water lines.
