General renovation has many advantages. One of them is that you can create the interior of your dreams from the very beginning. There is also a need to look carefully at all installations. It is important to ventilate the bathroom, electrics in the whole house, but water and sewage installations are certainly the most important at the beginning. Where to start? What should individual bathroom elements look like?
Everything about wet room kits
Creating wet room kits within the bathroom should begin with the implementation of approaches, i.e. special branches linking the vertical with individual devices. Common approach to the plumbing division may have sinks, bathtubs and shower cabins. Separate, located below the others, should have every toilet.
Wet room kit can have a maximum length of 1 meter, while the bathtub, sink or shower – up to 3 meters. In order to avoid problems with slow flowing of water and clogging of drain pipes, their decreases and diameters should be appropriately selected. Sewer pipes should have a slope of 2 to 15 centimeters for every meter of length. What should be the diameter of the pipes? 110 mm for the toilet, 50 mm for the bathtub and shower, 32-40 mm for connecting the basin drain.
The best height wet room kit
Depending on the device to be connected, the drain inlet should be placed at different heights. This is very important, so remember. The inlet of the basin drain is located from 50 to over 60 cm above the floor. The shower drain is up to several cm above the floor. The bathtub drain is usually placed approximately 15-16 cm above the floor. Of course, all outflows should be equipped with elbows to protect the bathroom from odors coming from the sewage system in the bathroom.
When it comes to toilet bowls, this issue can be solved in two ways. We have to choose toilets with vertical or horizontal outflow. The latter is most often used, although in some buildings, mainly older ones, a vertical outflow can be found. Depending on the type of drain we have, we should choose the appropriate toilet bowl.
Where to lay pipes?
Sewage installation is only part of the bathroom installation. The second, but important part is the water installation, that is, the pipes supplying water to bathroom devices – washbasins, baths, showers or cisterns. Thanks to the use of appropriate pipes, the water in the bathroom can be easily moved to any place.
The pipes are laid in the floor or in the forged grooves of the walls. You can choose classic steel, copper or plastic pipes. Unfortunately, the most popular, i.e. steel, have many disadvantages – poor quality steel and contaminated water cause that such pipes quickly corrode, overgrown with rock and therefore need to be replaced every 7-10 years. It is worth considering the choice of a copper (more expensive) installation or a plastic (with a price comparable to that of steel).
