Why You Need A Plumber For Your Kitchen Remodeling Project

Posted on

Are you planning to remodel your kitchen to make it feel more modern? If so, know that you're likely going to need to bring in a plumber during the process since they can help you with the following kitchen features that you are looking to add.

Changing The Position Of The Sink And Appliances

A common thing that happens during a kitchen remodel is that the location of the sink and appliances change from their original position. Your old sink may have been facing a wall, but now you want it next to a window that overlooks your backyard. A plumber is going to be able to help move all of the necessary pipes to get water and drainage to your sink's new location. You may also have a few appliances that need to be hooked up to a water source and drainage line because they are in a new location, such as the dishwasher. 

Adding a Water Line For The Refrigerator

Are you finally upgrading to a new refrigerator that has a water dispenser and an ice machine? If so, you are going to need to run a new water line to the appliance in order for it to work. It is likely that a water line never existed in this part of your kitchen since older refrigerators didn't have these features and it simply wasn't needed.

Thankfully, adding just a water line should be simple for a refrigerator since it doesn't require a drainage line. It's common for refrigerators to have a drainage pan where water collects and eventually evaporates due to the heat produced by the refrigerator. 

Adding A Pot Filling Water Faucet 

Do you hate having to take your large pots over to the sink to fill them up with water in order to boil it? A nice feature that you can add above your stove is a pot filling water faucet. It is a faucet that is on a movable arm and lives above your stove, and it is used exclusively to make it easier to fill pots on the stove. Since you're remodeling your kitchen, it's the perfect time to add one since the walls are opened up and you can get new plumbing to that part of the kitchen.

One of the nice things about a pot filling faucet is that it only needs to be a cold water line. You don't have to double your efforts and installation costs by including both a hot and cold water dispenser since you're bringing that water to a boil anyway.
