There are many things that can go wrong when one attempts to do a water line installation in Highland Park without a plumber. The one thing to understand when trying to save a few hundred dollars and doing a water line installation without a plumber is that you are taking a chance of flooding and damaging your entire home. A water line installation in Highland Park should take a plumber roughly about 2-3 hours for a complete installation depending on circumstances.
To be able to perform a water line installation there are a few materials that one would need in order to complete this task. Those materials would include items such as a new water line, pipe joint compound, a few elbows (for those out there that are using a metal line), a T connector (or one can get a larger splitter to be able to connect more lines), one would need a water line, and one would need a valve for each line to be able to shut off the water to a particular line. One would also want to make sure that they have a pipe wrench as well.
The first step to a water line installation in Highland Park without a plumber would be to find out the size of the connector that you will need. This would require one to go down to the water line and then one would need to measure to the closest proximity as possible. Once the plumber determines what size line and connector they will be installing, the rest is relative easy. If a trench needs dug, the plumber can do it, although many will ask for it to already be prepped for them before their appointment date.
The line will be laid out first with general, long cuts being made, but not finalized and completed. Once everything is loosely fitted, the final fitting will take place. The connection will usually be made to the feed main and then the line properly fastened and connected all the way to the main connection in the home. Once the is done, the line will go live just to verify there are no leaks or kinks. Upon completion, the main might be turned back off for the time being until other work is completed, or it might be left running.
The installation of a water line really isn’t that hard.
