Steps to install a basement laundry in London, presented by plumbers near me
To have a functional basement laundry, our plumber in London will have to set up the washer and dryer in this room. Here is how he does that:
• In order to set up the dryer vent, he drills through the wall of the home. We will choose a place which is near the base of the house and where there are no obstructions;
• We then lay a bead of caulk around the dryer vent at the point where it connects to the wall. Afterwards, the vent is screwed in;
• The flexible metal dryer vent tubing is connected to the dryer vent;
• Our plumbers in London utilize an elbow fitting to connect the dryer vent tubing to the dryer back;
• The dryer is plugged in a 240-volt receptacle;
• Now, the water pump and the washtub are connected by using a reciprocating saw;
• The pipe section is replaced with a PVC-fitting, which is connected to the current galvanized pipe;
• We make sure the water is shut off. Then, the current hot and cold water pipes are cut;
• The copper pipe connections are replaced with copper pipe T-fittings;
• A flux is installed at each joint and the connections are soldered with a torch;
• Now, the washing machine is installed. Our local plumbers can further explain how this is done, as well.

• Do not forget to organize the space in such a way that the ironing board or recessed bench can fit it;
• The majority of basement laundries in London need a place to put the clothes when they are folded or hung up, before they are taken into the closets and dressers of the home. Therefore, remember to organize a corner for folded or hung up clothes.
