Installing a pipe system is essential in functioning a home, commercial building, or industrial property. This task involves a lot of drilling and industrial chemicals and ladders. It requires expertise beyond the limited knowledge scope of a DIYer, so if you have a project installing a piping system in your home, it’s best to hire a professional plumbing contractor.
When installing a pipe system in your home, the contractor will begin the task by first covering all the working areas in plastic.
This covering protects your furniture and belongings from water and other types of damage.
The contractor may also temporarily shut off your home water service for a few days. If the plumbing work involves building a completely new network, you will only go without water when they are switching from the old to the new system.
In case the work involves a few repairs to the old system, the plumbing contractor may shut off the water during the day when the repairs or installation are in progress. Watch the linked video above for a visual illustration of what to expect during a piping system installation in your home.
