Whether you are having some remodeling done or having a complete new kitchen or bathroom installation, now would be a great time to think of those little things that could make life a little easier.
Realistically, plumbing tips are never going to change your life, but a little thought could go a long way to the ‘thank goodness I did…’ feeling.
Quite a few years ago, many people would give no thought to the ‘what if’s?’, partly due to costs of expensive fittings. With manufacturing techniques and processes improving all the time, prices for manufacturing are dropping. With this in mind, you should think about fitting isolation valves to as many different parts of your plumbing systems; hand sink, shower, toilet, tub etc. This will mean that should you ever have troubles, it is easy to replace without disrupting the whole house.
Although your plumbing professional will be happy to advise you, you should always think about the routing of pipes, how accessible they’ll be in the event of trouble and just what it would take to reach them should the worst happen.
Of course, we aren’t suggesting that you have pipes just trailing across your open floor, but equally, try not to bury them somewhere that would require half the home being dismantled.
Add these little extra bits into the system where it makes sense; thinking of changing the location of your appliances? Fit the pipework whilst it is easily accessible.
These are just three very simple things to think about when you are having work done, a professional plumber will be able to give you further advice.
