What is Trim Out Plumbing?

Many people don’t realize that plumbing a new home usually happens in phases. The plumber has to locate the main water and sewer lines and then decides where these will enter the building. Then the plumber will install the piping in the building and cut holes for fixtures. Finally the plumber finishes out the connections. These three plumbing phases have different names:

  1. Rough-in underground
  2. Rough-in aboveground
  3. Finish, or trim-out finish

Trim-out plumbing is the last phase in new construction plumbing. It’s where the plumber installs the beautiful fixtures for your home, such as sinks, showers, and the toilet, as well as hooks up and installs the major appliances, such as your dishwasher and hot water heater. This is where the homeowner plays one of the biggest roles in terms of the new construction build as they are the ones who pick out the appliances and fixtures. This is also one of the places where many homeowners can choose to reduce their carbon footprint by choosing environmentally-friendly appliances and water-saving fixtures. The term “finish plumbing” also refers to trim-out plumbing since you are putting the finishing touches on the home’s plumbing system.


What Tasks Are Done During the Trim-Out Plumbing Phase?

  • Drains and pipes are prepared for when the water is turned on
  • Drains are installed underneath sinks
  • Water supply valve and lines are installed
  • All of the fixtures in the home are connected to their appropriate pipes, either water supply lines or to drains and sewage pipes
  • Caulking and sealing takes place around the plumbing fixtures
  • When everything is done, a final walk through is performed and each fixture is tested to make sure it is working
  • Sometimes the plumber will install the automatic controls that regulates the pressurized pipe systems
