Do you feel like the bathrooms and kitchen in your home are starting to show some age? If so, the Marietta plumbers you know and trust, Pell Plumbing, can help you with bathroom and kitchen remodeling and installation. Whether it’s a simple facelift brought about by changing out the fixtures, or a demolition and installation of all new sinks, showers, and/or tubs, Pell Plumbing can handle all of your plumbing needs with an expert touch.
Changing out the plumbing in your home has practical reasons as well as aesthetic ones. There are two main reasons why you as a homeowner would want to update your plumbing. The first is due to necessity. For example, if you live in an older home, you may discover that either your plumbing is not up to the current code, or it does not meet the minimum requirements for your insurance company. Another example would be if an unusually cold winter caused one of your water pipes to freeze and burst. In these cases, you would have no choice but to make the repairs. However, while you are doing so, there is nothing stopping you from upgrading to some decorative plumbing that can beautify your home, which is the second major reason for updating plumbing. If you upgrade to environmentally friendly appliances, they will serve to enhance the value of your home as well. Consider installing faucets with low-flow aerators and low-flow showerheads, both of which allow you to adjust the flow of water while maintaining a steady water pressure. Energy-efficient toilets are another popular choice. To compare, toilets that are 20 years old use 5 gallons of water per flush, toilets that are 5 to 7 years old use about 3.5 gallons of water per flush, and the latest in toilet technology allows for only 1.5 gallons of water per flush.
