To understand the pressure-assisted toilet, you must first be aware of the fact that the toilets you mostly see on a daily basis are known as gravity-assisted toilets. Gravity-assisted toilets are your standard home toilets. They operate via a handle which triggers a valve inside the tank to open and suction the water down from the tank, through the toilet bowl, and into the pipes below. On the other hand, pressure-assisted toilets are a newer technology. They consist of a sealed cylindrical tank inside of a larger ceramic tank. When these toilets are flushed, water displaces air inside the sealed tank, which generates a much more forceful flush than can be produced by gravity alone. Below are some reasons you may want to consider purchasing pressure-assisted toilets for your home: [Read more…]
Want to Save Money Through Bathroom Remodeling?
The monthly bills are a necessary evil in the world of living in a home. With a mortgage, a car payment, and the many jobs that pop up with owning a home; reducing whatever bills a home owner can is to their advantage. If a person who owns a home can reduce all of their monthly bills, home owner has more money in their pocket to not only work on their house, but it also enables them to plan for the future. Every home can reduce their monthly bills simply by remodeling their bathroom.
The only room in the house that may use up more of the monthly bills than the bathroom is the kitchen. Every time someone walks into the bathroom the utility meters start rolling. The toilet is used the most and is the first place to start with reducing the monthly bills. The toilet uses a lot of water to flush and increases the water bill each time it flushes. If a low fill water efficient toilet is installed, this toilet alone can reduce the water bill by almost 25%. A normal toilet flushes 4.5 gallons per flush where as the low flush toilet only uses 1.6 gallons per flush. That creates a savings of about 3 gallons per flush. As soon as the faucets are turned on the water bill starts pouring out of your pocket.
Energy efficient and water efficient faucets and shower heads increases the water pressure so that the water pressure while at the same time using less water and less heat energy from the water heater. This helps solve both the electric and water bills. With these two changes alone, the home owner decreases the water bill by almost 50% and the electric bill by 10%. When these items are added to installing energy saving LED lights and energy efficient windows which allow less heat and air escape out the window, the homeowner’s monthly bills have the ability to be lowered by almost 60%. This monthly saving could add up to a large amount of money in a very short time.

Reasons to Hire a Plumber to Remodel Your Bathroom
Remodeling a bathroom is not as straightforward as it may look. Sure bathrooms are often the smallest room in the home; however look at how many things are actually in this room. Remodeling a bathroom also has something that most other rooms do not, water pipes. If the plumbing is not installed properly throughout the remodeling project there can be leaks which will cause damage, this is why it is important to hire a plumber for such a job.
Hiring a plumber to do the bathroom remodeling project is the best way to ensure that there will not be any problems with leaks or anything else. When hiring a plumber to do the project they will already have the tools that they will need. Often when a homeowner tries to do these types of projects they end up needing to buy more tools. Or they try to use something else instead of the proper tool and cause more damage or work in the long run.
Besides having the proper tools, plumbers also have the knowhow to do the project correctly. Often a homeowner will jump headfirst in to a remodeling project with only the thoughts about what it will look like once it has been finished. But many of the homeowners that do this have very little knowledge on how to get to the project finished. What happens in a lot of cases like this is that the project ends up being half way completed or finished but not even being close to what had been originally intended.
Many homeowners want to save money and that is why they take on these home remodeling projects themselves. But after they get started and problems start to arise, they don’t have the correct tools, they have to go back to their job, and constant interruptions keep taking them away from doing the work and countless other things, it starts to become very obvious that they should have hired a plumber to do the remodeling work.
