New Construction Plumbing

Residential plumbing design and installation have evolved substantially over the past few decades. Pipes and fixtures, once reliant on metals, now utilize durable synthetic plastic and alloys. In light of the stricter building codes to the rising cost of construction materials, a plumbing error can prove costly.

When building a new home, plumbing installation requires meticulous design consideration and specialized skill and training to get the job done right the first time. Jeffco Enterprises has over 10 years of experience in residential plumbing and remodeling throughout Allegheny and Washington County. As a family-owned business, we take pride in delivering outstanding workmanship and building lasting relationships with our customers in the Greater McDonald area.

The Importance of Hiring an Expert Plumber to Handle Your New Plumbing

At the start of a large construction project, it is easy to get caught up in the details of the aesthetic aspects of the new space. However, plumbing is an essential component of your property’s infrastructure. A professional Plumber will work with your contractor and keep track of the details.

Components of a Home’s Plumbing System

Residential plumbing installation demands that multiple moving parts operate in tandem. There are several factors to consider in designing new home plumbing. The team at Jeffco Enterprises has the expertise and resources to deliver top-quality new construction plumbing. We take into account the appropriate piping design for your home’s layout, as well as the best pipe materials for an efficient plumbing system.

The plumbing team at Jeffco Enterprises will also recommend the best plumbing fixtures for your needs and budget. New construction plumbing is complex and challenging even for the seasoned professional. However, our team strives to provide the best-quality installation and service possible. Read on to learn more about the components of a residential plumbing system.

Pipes and Fittings

The pipes and fittings are the bare bones of any plumbing system. Piping transports water from the well or mainline to your home plumbing system and the designated fixtures. Fittings connect one pipe to the next and enable the pipes to form corners and angles to maximize space allocation inside the walls. Pipes and fittings are available in a variety of materials, including brass, copper, and PVC.

Plumbing Fixtures

Fixtures include sinks, tubs, showers, dishwashers, washing machines, and water heaters—basically any appliance that needs water to operate.


A drainage system provides an exit route for water once it has run through appliances or out of fixtures. Every fixture has a dedicated drain that leads to the main drain line. The water and waste coming from the drains ultimately end in the sewer or septic tank.

Sewer Lines and Septic Systems

Your septic tank separates and breaks down solid and liquid waste. Sewer lines and septic systems must be sized and installed for your plumbing system to run efficiently.

What About Remodeling?

Plumbing remodeling requires the same level of planning and care as a new home plumbing installation. Therefore, hiring experienced, trained professionals is crucial to a successful outcome. Our team at Jeffco Enterprises in McDonald, PA, has the training and experience for whatever the plumbing remodel entails.
