The sewer accommodation stubs, which are part of the drainage system are set before the concrete foundation is laid with the other part of plumbing being done later, the duct installation and rough-in plumbing takes place next alongside wiring after the wall framing has taken place but the dry wall is yet to be hang, after which you should put in place the main drains in the floor, fit in the sinks and install the water pipes, tubing and toilet flanges, and the following paragraphs gives details about each installation.
For the plumbing fixtures, most of them need to be installed before finishing on the walls because most of them are large in size, with examples being bathing tabs and shower units that both require to be covered using old blankets, rugs or cardboard to prevent their damage while finishing on the walls and laying the flooring, after which you should set and connect commodes and sinks.
The water supply system consists of pressurized water that come in two lines, with one taking water to warm in the heater, and the other bringing in cold water to every appliance just like the one from the heater does, but other homes have water supply manifold system, which has blue and red valves that control cold or hot water entering the fixture and this is advantageous because it makes it easy to shut out the supply of water to only one appliance when there is need to without having to shut out the entire house from water supply.
The drainage system mainly consists of one stack that runs from below the ground floor up to the roof line collecting waste from each floor and directing it down to the main sewer drain which exits the home in the frost line and is connected to a personal septic system or the municipal sewer system.

Drain traps are also essential to prevent gases from the drainage systems from getting back to the house by retaining some water in the neck of their u-shape and they are installed under sinks, showers and tubs.
