Part one of a series on the life cycle of a plumbing project explores the importance of the final steps of your plumbing project.
Remember to Plan Your Plumbing ProjectIn part one of this series, we covered how important it can be to plan your plumbing project. This is the first real step. The next one is implementation. But after you get the project done, what is left to do?
Next, you have to wrap up, both figuratively and literally. If you are worried about the polar vortex making a repeat appearance, you want to make sure you wrap your pipes with insulation, as a final step in your plumbing project, to keep them from freezing. As for figuratively wrapping up, you want to make sure that everything is as tight as it should be on any bolts or fixtures, and that any caulking is also set and solid before you turn on your water.
Now, comes the time to watch carefully. Turn on your water main, and then turn on the new fixture, or flush your new toilet. Make sure there are no leaks anywhere. If there isn’t, you are good to go. You just have to clean up your work area. Congratulations! Your plumbing project is a success.
Plumbing Project Wrap Up
As you see, there is a lot to a plumbing project. It’s a lot more than buying a book or turning on a home improvement show on satellite. You want to plan it well, implement it, and wrap it up.
Do you know what is the most important part? if you don’t really know what you’re doing, do not try to fake your way through it. Instead call in a professional plumber to help you with your plumbing project.
