Styles of Faucets and Sinks

If you’ve decided to remodel your bathroom, you’ll find out just how many variations of every product there is and how many options there are to choose from. If you are needing new sinks, but are not sure which kind of model would be best, here are a few different types.

Basin/ Vessel Sinks

The Undermount Sink Is Easy To Clean But Difficult To Replace and Repair

This trendy bowl sits on top of the counter with the faucet perched on top of the rim. While nice to look at, it can be a mess when washing and drying hands as water flies everywhere because the faucet is so close to the edge.

Pedestal Sinks

For a classic and elegant look, pedestal sinks are a great choice. They don’t provide counter space, so installation of counters or purchase of shelves would be needed if you need more storage.

Undermount Sinks

Similar to the drop-in sink, the undermount sink doesn’t have a rim so it appears to give a seamless look with the counter. It is easy to clean but difficult to replace and repair.

Wall-Mounted Sink

A wall-mounted sink doesn’t have a base and has its pipes exposed, so you can see it hanging on the wal. This is the best option for tight spaces as you can put a rack underneath it for more storage space.

Drop-In Sink

This is probably the sink you already have in your bathroom counter. If the rim of the sink is parallel or sits above the counter, but the sink is inside the counter, then you have a drop in sink. This type of bowl is good for catching dripping water when drying hands.

What Could Cause Water Pressure Loss?

Water Pressure

Every Home Deserves The Water Pressure They Expect.

Have you noticed the water is not coming out of your faucets with the pressure you would like? This is an issue many homeowners have. While at times it may be a personal preference, water pressure can be caused by other, more serious issues within your home plumbing. If you notice low water pressure, it is important to have your plumber complete an inspection to determine the cause of your low water pressure.

Possible Water Pressure Issues

  • Your Water Is Turned Off At The Valve –  While it may seem silly, if the main shut off valve is turned it may reduce the amount of water that comes into your home. There are also valves around your plumbing fixtures that could be shut off.
  • You Have A Damaged Pipe – A damaged, clogged, or worn pipe within your plumbing can cause many problems for your home. These issues can stop or redirect water away from your home.
  • Your Pump is Failing – If you have a well, a big concern could be your well pump. This pump helps get water to your home, but if it is damaged it can reduce or stop the flow of water that you need.

If you have water pressure issues that do not coincide with any of the above problems, you may want to consider a water pressure booster. These systems can work in tandem with your home plumbing to get you the water and pressure you need for your daily routines.

Benefits of Having Your Own Water Well

While wells are less commonly seen today, they are still around. Extremely durable and consistent, wells are a great alternative to water lines in your home. Here are some benefits of having your own water well on your property.

No More Water Bills

Wells Means No Monthly Water Bill!

Since you are supplying your own water, the city cannot tax you anymore for using its water. This can save you hundreds of dollars every year and you can use as much water as you want. The only downside is that your well water will not be filtered and treated like the city does, so you will have to buy equipment that does that.

Unique Taste

Since the water is coming from a specific spot on your property, it will taste different due to the things around it that could affect it, like types of soil or foliage. Also setting the level of filtration or even what type of filter you get that removes certain chemicals can affect taste. If don’t get a water softener, your water will have minerals in it that will affect the taste as well.

Reliable

Citizens often take city water for granted. They find this out when a water main gets busted or the water treatment facility has to issue a public health warning. With your own well, you get water when you want it, not having to worry about outside interruptions.
