You’re remodeling your bathroom and are finally ready to replace the old chipped vanity and dull and worn out shower surround.    You want to demo the bathroom yourself to save money but your nervous of the live water pipes in the wall.

Don’t be – here’s a simple approach to performing a plumbing disconnect – the easy way.

Plumbing Disconnect Steps:

For the sink and toilet you can simply remove them from the bathroom and rely on their existing shut off valves or you can open the walls and cap the pipe.

Prior to doing any work shut off the water to the house and open the faucets at the highest level and lowest level to drain the water lines.

For showers and tubs the process is the same.  You need to open the wall or floor to expose the water lines and cut them back.

Once all of the plumbing has been disconnected in this bathroom turn on the main water val ve slowly, turn off the open faucets and inspect for leaks.

Now you can gut the walls, ceiling and floor as needed to conduct your remodel.
