We Specialize in Manufactured Home Plumbing Solutions
A mobile home—also known as a “manufactured home” or “factory-built home”—is like an ordinary dwelling but is prefabricated off-site and transported to plots of land where they are ultimately used.
During the nascent years of the mobile home, aspects of its construction utilized cheaper, lower-quality materials. However, modern mobile homes are constructed to vastly higher standards than earlier models and may be virtually indistinguishable from site-built dwellings.
However, despite the significant leaps in construction quality for modern mobile homes, their designs lend themselves to various plumbing problems.
This may be due, in part, to the fact that mobile home plumbing system might feature materials and configurations that depart from the conventional site-built houses. While this fact may scare other plumbers away, Atlas Plumbing remains up to the task. Our mobile home plumbing repair services in Henderson have the experience and confidence to take on any plumbing issue. No job is beyond our expertise or beneath our consideration.

How Is Mobile Home Plumbing Different?
Mobile home plumbing differs from traditional plumbing in several ways.
First, the pipes used in mobile homes are often much smaller and made with thinner material than those used in traditional homes.
Additionally, mobile home plumbing often has fewer components than standard plumbing systems, as there is not usually a need for extensive plumbing components. Mobile homes also have unique plumbing problems that require specialized solutions.
Mobile Home Plumbing Problems
The plumbing systems that mobile homes typically feature may be susceptible to problems involving ventilation and drainage lines. The plumbing lines for supply, drainage, and ventilation operate on a delicate balance of fluid and air pressure. When a leak or stoppage disrupts this balance, the waste and gasses can start to back up and accumulate, causing intolerable and sometimes dangerous living conditions.
Some issues that are unique to mobile home plumbing include:
- Piping materials – Older mobile home pipes were susceptible to multiple leaks. However, newer mobile homes typically utilize CPVC or PEX tubing, which can last even longer than copper pipes.
- Water line locations – Unlike water lines in houses that run from the wall, mobile home water lines run straight up through the floor. As a result, sink cabinets need to reserve space to let water lines come up. Furthermore, mobile home water lines may require straight stop valves rather than angle stop valves.
- No clean-outs – A clean-out is a pipe that provides access to a sewer line for the removal of plumbing stoppages. Site-built dwellings typically have clean-outs for mainlines and kitchen lines. In contrast, mobile homes usually don’t have clean-outs. This can make clearing stoppages very difficult. Our team of professionals knows how to resolve stoppages in mobile home plumbing configurations without clean-outs.
- Poor plumbing ventilation – Mobile homes are prone to plumbing ventilation issues. This can cause slow drainage, gurgling, offensive odors, and bubbles in toilet water. These symptoms usually indicate a ventilation problem.
