A new Adelaide home? We can help with your plumbing needs!
Building a new home in Adelaide is so exciting and it’s easy to get caught up on how things will look and feel, however, spending some time thinking about the plumbing at this stage can really affect the longer-term usability of your home.
For big families, for example, you may want to consider two sinks in the kitchen, an extra toilet, or a larger hot water system. Having these conversations with your plumber early in the building process can save money as they don’t have to be worked into the plans later.
In general, there are three main plumbing considerations to keep in mind:
First, getting water into your home. You may like to consider what type of pipes you want to use, whether you will have rain water tanks to supplement the water available to you (and where those tanks should go) and where you want taps and appliances to go.
Second, think about drainage. This includes sewage and storm water and can play into your landscape designs. It’s important to think about drainage from any room that has water coming into it as you want to ensure you don’t end up with costly water damage in years to come. Waterproofing is also an important element of drainage because it can direct water to where it needs to be – that is, down the drains rather than in your walls and floors!
Third, think about the appliances you currently own or want to incorporate into your new home. Don’t forget to think about where things like your washing machine will go, thinking this sort of thing through from an early point can affect how you use your home for many years to come!
