Rough in plumbing is the stage when water supply and pipes are installed in a home or building. You may also hear the term associated to parts of your home that were fitted for future plumbing uses such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or second kitchens. This is very commonly done in unfinished basements.
In homes that are already built, plumbing services for laundry or bathrooms may be roughed in for future use. When the time comes for you to renovate and add in the bathroom, a big part of the job is already done.

If you’re looking to add in a bathroom in your home in Mesquite, call the professional plumbers at Moore’s Plumbing - Mesquite.
What is a Rough In?
The term rough in refers to the timeline in construction when framing is completed and the mechanical wiring, plumbing and HVAC installations have been done. This is before the walls and ceilings are done. In many cases, you may be able to rough in for additional services at a later date, and these pipes and connections will be outlined in your building plans.
Types of Rough Ins
- Water supply pipes
- Drain pipes
- Pipe connections for sinks, toilets, showers, bathtubs, faucets, dishwasher, washing machine etc.
- Electrical rough ins will depend on what is in the plans for a house and can include:
- Power outlets
- Hot Water units
- Air conditioners
- Home automation
- Home security
Roughing in for future plumbing fixtures can be complicated. You need to determine the location of future walls and then ensure plumbing fixtures and drains are properly placed to ensure enough space. Plus, every plumbing fixture has to be vented and this needs to be provided for and determined in advance.
This is why it’s important to hire experienced and professional plumbers when you are looking to rough in plumbing in your home or business.
