  2. Hydraulic system. Subsequently, the pre-existing hydraulic system is replaced with more modern solutions such as the current PVC or polyethylene exhaust pipes, taking into account the respective characteristics and the connections of the sanitary fixtures that will then be installed.
  3. Electrical system and walls. If the electrical system does not need to be replaced or modified, the walls and plaster will be restored, arranging the tiles properly if they have been chosen to give a new style to the bathroom being renovated.
  4. Installation of new floors and sanitary. Fittings Then the installation of the screed and floors is followed, a phase that does not allow the use of the bathroom, and only then can the installation of the new sanitary ware and of the chosen taps continue.
