Water can be very damaging, and in a home, some of the largest concentrations of water can be found inside the bathroom. Left unchecked, this means that problems like broken bathroom fixtures can do a lot of damage. This is where Edmonton plumbing companies like Capital Plumbing & Heating Ltd. can step in to repair or replace the fixtures, especially faucets and the like since they’re generally the most fragile. A good example of what this entails is an article by Jan Soults Walker for Better Homes and Gardens.
Before shopping for a bathroom faucet replacement, remove the old faucet and count the holes in the sink where the faucet had been installed. If there are two or more holes, measure from the centers of the holes that are furthest apart. If the distance is 4 inches, choose a center-set faucet with the spout and handles configured as one unit on a base. For holes 8-16 inches apart, you’ll need a widespread faucet set (the spout and handles are separate). For a sink with just one hole, put a single-hole bathroom faucet on your shopping list. Pair a vessel sink with a tall faucet mounted in the countertop or select a wall-mount faucet. Measure out from the wall to the center of the sink and purchase a wall-mount faucet spout long enough to deliver water directly into the basin without splashing onto the countertop.
A lot of care needs to be taken when repairing a bathroom. The job can be too much for a layman, and so if you want to have the best plumbing in Edmonton, Alberta, you’re going to need professional help.
First, professional plumbers would be familiar with all the possible problems associated with bathrooms. They would be familiar with what can leak and what can break down like the pipes under the sink and the various fixtures. They’ll also know what to check to ensure no future problems emerge.
Second, professionals do a thorough job. Most people would stop once the initial signs of a problem are fixed. However, plumbers know that some problems require a more thorough approach like clogged drains and similar things.
Finally, well-trained plumbers can also carry out the proper installation of additional fixtures. After all, you may want to have a new showerhead or sink, and mistakes in their placement can cause problems in the future. A professional would be able to ensure that these fixtures are well-placed and will not have any malfunctions.
