Use a Residential Home Plumbing Diagram to Your Advantage

Damien McCusker

At first glance, your home’s plumbing system can appear highly complex and something that only an expert can truly understand. A home plumbing diagram is an overview of how your home’s plumbing system is configured, and it can help remove some of the confusion about how your home’s plumbing system works and improve your knowledge about how to care for it

What a Home Plumbing Diagram Tells You

The key things a home plumbing diagram tells you are where the pipes are located in your home and what the pipes do, as not every pipe is the same or uses the same material. On most home plumbing diagrams, the pipes are color-coded based on their use. These colors include blue for freshwater, red for hot-water lines, yellow for venting pipes that remove air from the lines to prevent damage, and black, which signifies sewer lines or lines that remove wastewater.

Why a Home Plumbing Diagram Is Useful

Knowing how your home’s plumbing system is configured can be useful in several situations. The first of these is helping you recognize the need for repair work. Knowing what type of line is damaged and where it is located can help you know how to shut it off while you wait for a professional to arrive to perform more extensive repairs. It’s also useful if you're scheduling any remodeling or repairs to your home, as you’ll know where the pipes are so you can point them out to the people working on your home, hopefully avoiding accidental damage to one or more of them.
