Plumbing Installation for a New Bathroom Addition
Of all the rooms in your home, the bathrooms have the highest concentration of plumbing. If you’re building a new bathroom addition for your home, it goes without saying that you’ll need plumbing pipe installation to carry clean water into the fixtures, and drain pipe installation to carry away water into the sewer line or septic system. You’ll need licensed, certified local plumbers to install pipes, drains, and fixtures. Skilled, experienced plumbing contractors will install high quality plumbing that will last for years to come.
Planning a Bathroom Addition in NJ
The first step for your new addition is planning. Ideally, any new bathrooms should be as close as possible to the house’s main sewer line. This makes it easier to install plumbing without breaking walls. Bathrooms also need enough space to satisfy New Jersey plumbing code requirements. In most areas, the minimum size for a bathroom is 66×30″ if the toilet is across from the sink on the opposite side, or 54×48″ if the two fixtures are next to one another.
Bathroom Plumbing Considerations
Plumbing installation for a new bathroom addition generally happens after the walls have been framed, but before drywall is installed. During the construction of your new bathroom addition, plumbers will need to install pipes and fixtures, which are connected with your existing plumbing. Waste pipes are installed first, connecting to the main sewer line.
- Toilets. Toilets come with special waste and venting requirements, which plumbers must take into consideration. Toilets are generally connected to the main soil stack, a vertical pipe that runs into the sewer line.
- Drainage for plumbing fixtures. Sinks, showers, and bathtubs need to be connected to your existing drain and waste stack. Drain pipes and vent pipes generally need a slope of at least 1/4″ per foot to prevent clogging and backups.
- Water supply pipes. Water supply plumbing pipes can be made from copper, PEX, or CPVC, although standard PVC is not suitable for interior plumbing that carries clean water. These pipes are generally 1/2″ in diameter, and connect to a 3/4″ main pipe.
During construction, you may also want to consider plumbing pipe or drain pipe replacement for aging galvanized steel pipes with copper or plastic, which last longer and are considered more hygienic.
For a new addition, you may need at least one permit before construction can begin. You may need a permit if you intend to:
- Alter the existing floor plan
- Make structural changes, such as adding new doors and windows
- Install or reroute ductwork
- Move or install plumbing fixture or electrical outlets

You’ll also need a licensed local plumber if you’re renovating an existing bathroom. Many homeowners eventually remodel a bathroom, either to expand the space, or for primarily aesthetic reasons. You may need to replace old plumbing pipes, relocate showers and drains, and install new fixtures during remodeling.
