Plumbing Installation

How does a plumbing system work?

A residential plumbing system is made up of two (2) separate systems. One plumbing system carries freshwater into the property, and the other plumbing system takes wastewater away from the property. Water entering the property is under pressure. It enters the property with enough pressure to travel throughout the entire building, even in an upward direction. When water comes into the property, it goes through a water meter that registers the amount of usage. The system has multiple shut off valve points, including a main shutoff valve, so that you can stop water flow to some or all of the property. The wastewater removal system relies on gravity to take used water away from the house.

Why is plumbing installation important?

Because water can be extremely damaging and dangerous when leaking into a property, it is extremely important to install plumbing properly to prevent leaks and ensure an efficiently running plumbing system.

How much does plumbing installation cost?

Installing a new plumbing system has multiple levels of cost, depending on the scope of work. Factors like: size of property, water main access, number of bathrooms, etc... all play a roll.  If you are going to re-plumb or install new plumbing into a property, it will be multiple thousands of dollars. If you are only replacing a section of the plumbing system, it'll cost you a lot less. For a custom quote of your plumbing project, contact Gerard Plumbing and Heating.
