How Long Does it Take to Draw One?
I can draw a riser diagram in as little as 24 hours if you have an emergency. Otherwise it normally takes five business days. Other mechanical engineers might take weeks to produce this drawing.
Are Building Drain Layouts Important?
Yes, a building drain layout is very important. Non-plumbers almost always install the wrong fittings that cause serious clogs.
If you’re a DIY plumber, you should seriously consider asking me to draw your Building Drain Layout drawing.
