PROFESSIONAL TIPS FOR REMODELING YOUR BATHROOM PLUMBING
Remodeling your bathroom is an excellent way to enhance your home and property value. However, it’s important that your bathroom does more than look nice. In fact, getting the maximum value for your bathroom remodel means taking its plumbing fixtures and pipe system into careful consideration.
Are you wondering how to select the best plumbing for your renovation? Then use this guide from Problem Solved Plumbing & Heating, your professional team serving Calgary, Cochrane and surrounding areas, to get started.
Choose Eco-friendly plumbing fixtures
Selecting Eco-friendly plumbing fixtures for your bathroom is a sound investment. These fixtures not only help preserve the environment, they also use less water to operate, thus lowering your utility bills every month.
To create a sustainable, green bathroom, we recommending choosing the following plumbing fixtures:
- A low flow toilet
- A water-efficient shower-head
- A water-efficient sink faucet.
Another great Eco-conscious and money-saving investment is a tankless hot water heater, which requires 20% less energy to heat your water than a traditional tank heater.
Invest in a top-quality pipe system
Chances are if your bathroom is ready for an update, your pipes are too. Unless you have well-maintained PVC pipes, your bathroom pipes will begin to deteriorate in time. For instance, copper pipes remain functional for around 50 years, but they corrode from the inside out. This means that homeowners often don’t realize there’s a problem until a water leak occurs.
To determine the health of your pipe system, ask a professional plumbing company to perform an inspection. Furthermore, if you need advice on pipe maintenance and how to avoid clogs, Problem Solved Plumbing & Heating is always happy to help.
Hire a professional to install your plumbing
From laying down tiles to installing a new vanity, many bathroom remodels make great DIY (Do It Yourself) projects. However, we strongly recommend asking a professional plumber to perform all plumbing installations, whether you need a new toilet connected or a complete overhaul of your existing pipe system.
By hiring a certified plumber, you’re leaving the work up to someone with a full repertoire of knowledge about plumbing, building codes and city requirements. Plus, they already own all the specialized tools to perform these installations. A professional plumber will ensure that your bathroom plumbing is reliable, perfectly installed, and up to code.
