Part 1: What is Plumbing and Piping Plan?

Plumbing and piping plans are used to convey key information about a room or structure's plumbing system. This information will be used by engineers, designers, builders and other parties involved in the building process. Such a plan will contain information including the structure's fixtures, pipework, valves, waste disposal system, and hot and cold water supply.

A structure's plumbing system is important to the health and safety of the occupants. Therefore, a plumbing and piping plan is an important diagram that ensures engineers and workers are working towards building a structure that meets all of the safety requirements.
