Plumbing Upgrades To Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Posted on: July 8, 2014

When remodeling your kitchen or bathroom there are a several plumbing upgrades that can add value and efficiency to your home, these include:

Faucets

New faucets are an inexpensive way to bring bathrooms and kitchens up to date. Adding low-flow faucet aerators will also save you money on your water bill.

Showerheads

Shower heads come a wide range of styles and finishes. A new trend is to install a combination of shower heads rather than a single wall-mount shower head for a spa like experience. The shower heads can be adjusted to produce a spray that ranges from fine to coarse and a water action that ranges from gentle mist to strong massage.

Top-mount or ceiling-mounted shower heads spray from directly overhead, life rainfall. Some top-mount heads can be installed flush with the ceiling in situations where the ceiling is too low to install a wall-mount head.

Sliding bar shower heads are mounted on a rail system to accommodate a wide range of heights.

Consider installing low-flow shower heads when possible. They use only around 2.5 gpm while maintaining an effective spray of water.

Toilets

Installing a high efficiency toilets is one of the best plumbing upgrades you can make. If your home is older and has its original plumbing fixtures, you could save up to 3.5 gallons of water per flush!

Comfort height toilets are another popular option for older homeowners or homeowners with disabilities.
